We had a 70th Birthday party on July 3rd at our home. Jimmy G was a great addition to the party! His music selection was broad and his vocals were great. He arrived early on his own time to set up and played a half hour extra. We even had him in the kitchen playing happy birthday with us! Thank you Jim
Jimmy was great! Would definitely recommend and use again !
Jimmy G sang and played his guitar at my Mom's 90 th backyard BBQ. He arrived early and began to play as soon as he set up. He created a perfect atmosphere for the party and sang a range of songs that entertained all ages. My guests couldn't stop talking about him and are still texting me with compliments. I highly recommend hiring him for any type of party! Thank you Jimmy!

Jimmy G was fantastic for our beach party! He was very professional - he arrived early and was all set up and ready to go when the party started. His voice is great and he played a nice variety of music. He played for 3 hours and hardly took a break. We are very glad we found him on Gig Salad. Hire Jimmy G - you will not be disappointed!
Jimmy G provided music for a 50th Anniversary Party. His mix was perfect for all the generations attending and we all enjoyed his singing and guitar playing.

Response from Jimmy G:
Great party and Family
Jimmy G played for my parent's surprise 40th Wedding Anniversary in early June. He was more than accommodating to our (many) requests and kept the party rolling. Our guests are all still talking about how much fun they had dancing, singing and listening to Jimmy G's tunes. My parents were thrilled that Jimmy played their wedding song, along with many other of their favorites. His song list is long and a great mix of more recent tunes as well as some blasts from the past! Jimmy went out of his way to learn a special song to play at the party. In short, we wanted to extend the night! We happily recommend him to others looking for some great music.
Until next time: thanks Jimmy for adding such fun to memorable occasion.
What a great addition to our Sons Graduation Party. So pleased with the how much Jimmy added to the party, my guests arrived and were welcomed by the great selection and sound of music coming from my backyard! ALL my guests we very impressed with how great he sounded and his wide variety of music he was performing. You can certainly tell that Jimmys natural talent, experience and love for his craft is what makes so good. I researched many performers for my only sons graduation party for 6 months, sampling music and checking reviews. Jimmy was everything I excepted and more . Very professional in regards to booking and , contact for request and confirming my party time and date. He showed on time and set up ready to go in minutes and then Like I said amazing music troughtout my event . Enjoyed so much. I would definitely recommend to all . Great Choice !!!!

Jimmy G was a fantastic additional to our party. He was extremely friendly and professional. He showed up on time to set up and played wonderful music for the entire party. We highly recommend hiring him for your event. We will definitely use Jimmy G again
Our guests loved Jimmy G.! He is a great entertainer -- Jimmy knew all the songs requested (Cat Stevens, anyone?) and even was game to play through the rain -- something we deeply appreciated at a beach party. He arrived well ahead of his scheduled time, and was super professional. Thanks Jimmy!
Jimmy G is a Star. Jimmy is a professional. He is punctual, efficient and Reliable. He arrived at our Hamptons White party dressed in white and prepared for the festivities! He performed all the great songs perfectly and took requests and played lovely music in between sets. His equipment is state of the art quality and our guests were so impressed with Jimmy G. They begged him to stay and play all Nite:) We will certainly hire Jimmy G. For our 2nd Annual White Party and every event in between. We highly recommend Jimmy G.

Great pleasure to be with you, your Family and Friends
We hired him last minute and just speaking to him I knew he would be great. I just got a good vibe on the phone with him. Everyone at the party loved him! He was such a big hit!!! Will be using him again for sure!!
Jimmy just played at my daughter's bridal shower in a barn out east. His voice and music selection was just perfect for the day. We requested a special song for her surprise entrance and he was right on cue and performed it perfectly. My only regret is that Jimmy did not get the praise he deserved because everyone was so focused on the bride to be. But after the shower many of my guests commented about how wonderful he was. Would definitely have him again at any event.
Jimmy G was amazing and knew how to play a big variety of songs. Everyone had a good time and he was able to take most requests and play the songs well. Would definitely have him perform at any event in the future. The cost is extremely reasonable as well.
Jimmy performed this past weekend at our annual keg party. Our audience was mostly folks in their 30's, 40's and 50's. He rocked outside, and we received so many compliments on his performance. Would highly recommend Jimmy G for any function to add a great mix of live tunes.
If you want your ordinary party to be fabulous then hire Jimmy G!! I had a graduation party for my son and wanted it to be special for all my guests. Jimmy entertained us with hits from the old to the new. My guests were asking where did u find Jimmy and can I have his card? Jimmy came early to set up and played to the end. Highly recommend hiring Jimmy
DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AND WAS OVERWHELMED BY HIS SINGING AND PLAYING AND PROFESSIONALISM TO MAKING OUR NIGHT SOMETHING TO REMEMBER. WOULD HIRE HIM IN A SECOND AGAIN!!
I booked Jimmy G two days before my husband's 60th birthday party. I was concerned because other than his videos, I knew nothing about him. I was even more concerned because he was available! Boy was I surprised! He performed a wide selection of old and contemporary songs. We had guests from ages 25-75 and they were all entertained and sang along with him. Thank you Jimmy for making my husband's party extra special. We can't wait to book you again!
We were so pleased with Jimmy's performance! He's very entertaining and engaging, and we loved his collection of old standards. We will definitely be booking him for other events as soon as possible! Thanks Jimmy for a great show.
