Master of 5 woodwind instruments, Jerry brings the world of jazz to the audience as the listener is taken on a fascinating journey thru 3 majors jazz eras. From Big Band standards to the frenzy of Bebop, Jerry finally cruises into modern Smooth Jazz sounds to complete the tour.
The jazz journey sets sail aboard a state of the art Bose T1 cylindrical computer controlled sound system which projects sound waves evenly so people up front experience the same volume and clarity as those in the back. The crisp, clear sound of the Bose system is projected from a compact tower that occupies a small floor space making this system versatile for restaurants, lounges, large weddings and special events.
It was an Awesome 1st time event. Mr. Jerry Collins helped set the atmosphere of our theme Rest and Restoration with the interaction of applause and laughter.
My guest loved him! I will definitely hire him for my next event!
I booked Mr. Collins for a 30th birthday party and he was everything I needed and more. He arrived early and set up before I even got to the venue! He began playing promptly at his start time. During the event, my schedule started to run behind and dinner was served later than I expected. Without hesitation, Mr. Collins continued to play past his end time. Of course I compensated him for the extra time but I was grateful that he did that for me regardless of our contract. His talents are great! I only asked for saxophone but he also brought a flute which turned out beautifully. I am so grateful for his professionalism and his kindness. He is awesome!
Thank you Mr. Collins we really enjoyed you!
Jerry performed at our wedding a week ago and we are very happy with his performance. He is very professional, prompt responses to all of my email and phone calls. Provided me with list of wedding song. Came on time, was dressed accordingly. We enjoyed his music a lot! I would definitely recommend him to anybody and will book him myself for the next event!
Jerry played for my family's reunion this weekend in Charlotte, NC. He arrived early and played music for us while my family was being seated. I considered this a bonus because it wasn't something we discussed in advance. Also he had all equipment needed for a great performance (microphone, speakers, etc). We did not have to rent anything extra from the hotel to accomodate his needs. My family loved him. He chose just the right selection for the event with little guidance from me. I will book him for future events again and again!
Response from Jerry Collins:
What a great family you have Nichole, you are truly blessed. Thank you for letting me part of your celebration.

"My love of music began at age eleven when I began playing the saxophone in elementary school and continued into college with a music scholarship. I grew up in Tucson, AZ where I learned to play all types of music such as Latin, Jazz, R&B and Dixieland but Improvisational Jazz has always been my favorite".
My motto is: "Life's too short to play the same solo twice...
