Verified Review


JBone was very easy to work with. He was flexible and polite. I loved the tunes he played. The rating would have been at least a four; but, a singer unknowingly accompanied his set... The singer was polite and courteous; but, I just simply wanted a saxophonist for my dinner session. Its always a good a idea to check with your clients prior to adjusting services rendered.

My performance is to positively glorify. It's all about the music and making people feel good! The things I say enhances my audience so they feel good about themselves. I stay far away from any disgusting subjects or anything that will bring anybody down when I perform. I choose the right songs and I communicate with my audience so that they feel a part of my show. I dress sharp and I show class but it's all about the music. My hair, clothes and poise are merely a prop.

Additional Booking Notes

I have a full sound system and all the equipment needed to perform in a large venue. I also hire performers to assist me in a show.
