We booked Jazz for a Ladies Night Out at our church. The ladies absolutely loved him! He was funny, tasteful, and made sure to give God all the glory. We would highly recommend him for any event and hope to work with again in the future!
I hired Jazz for my church anniversary program after looking at his videos, I was sold. I contacted Jazz and he was extremely professional from day 1. My Pastor was impressed and enjoyed Jazz’s set. Thank you Mr. Tate for making our Pastor laugh. We will never think of chicken the same way ever again. Definitely would recommend for any event.
