Hired Slammer Jazz! for a 3 hour Mardi Gras-themed cocktail party, and was very pleased! Jim arrived in plenty of time to set up and brought with him an impressive array of instruments. His music suited our event very well, adding to the mood while still allowing our guests to chat amongst themselves. Jim was also extremely willing to talk with our guests and answer questions they had about the music and his instruments. I highly recommend him and will be keeping him in mind for future events!!
Jim did a great job entertaining my party. I would highly recommend him and hire him for future events!!!!
Response from Slammer Jazz!:
It was my pleasure performing for your wonderful family at Damon's college graduation party at the Embassy Suites. Many people asked for my business card for their future events so I will likely be seeing you again soon!
Slammer Jazz is a one man band! He played 5 different instruments and switched them multiple times throughout each song. Not only do you get great music, but you also get a great show to watch as entertainment. Highly recommended!
I cannot say thank you enough to Slammer Jazz and his accompanying harpist and soloist. They all were outstanding, and I will cherish the memories for all time. I asked them to play some contemporary songs and they nailed them!
We hired SlammerJazz to do about an hour and a half of dinner music (jazz and holiday standards) for our company holiday party. Everything was great, from the initial contact all the way through the performance. Communication was easy via GigSalad and Jim made sure we had everything the way we wanted it. SlammerJazz was a great addition to our party.
Slammer Jazz was great. Showed up on time and sounded great! Very easy to communicate with them.
He was able to create great background music and entertainment by himself with multiple instruments, which was very impressive. He did a great job for our reception!
To provide entertainment to our wedding guests and to set the mood for positive experience Slammer Jazz was contracted.
The variety of selections presented on saxophone and xylophone were EXCEPTIONAL!!
Our wedding guests spanned five generations and came from all regions of USA. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Several remarks were shared about the vibes one gets from live music. Our young family members were mesmerized and calmed by music.
This is an element that pleases us and our guests. Even the venue staff enjoyed Slammer Jazz.
I have had the opportunity to hire Slammer Jazz for 4 events and at every event our guest rave about the music. The musicians are all so talented and play music that is appropriate for so many events and settings. I recommend Jim and Slammer Jazz to non- profits, corporate event planners and brides all the time. The professional manner in which Jim approaches his business is much appreciated.
We needed some "cocktail hour" entertainment for our daughters wedding reception. Jim fit the Bill, and how.
Slammer Jazz was a hit for our event, everyone commented on how talented he was and his selection of music was "spot on".
HIGHLY recommend Slammer Jazz!
Jim and his band members were wonderful to work with from start to finish! He was extremely professional in both our many emails back and forth as well as onsite. He was able to answer any questions we had and made sure that our event went off without a hitch. Along with his professionalism, the music was fantastic and enjoyed by all! We are located in DC, but if we are in the area again for another event, we will be sure to contact them! I would definitely recommend Slammer Jazz!
THERE WAS THIS ONE SONG U GUYS PLAY THAT HAD A KILLING BASS LINE AND HAD A NICE GROVE...WHAT THE NAME OF IT?
I recently heard the Slammer Jazz Quartet at both the Jazz on the Monon Series and the Carmel Arts Festival. They provided excellent musical entertainment with a wide variety of "oldies but goodies" songs. Jim displays his talent by playing several instruments and his daughter, Heidi, is a great vocalist. I would highly recommend them to play for any future event.
Slammer Jazz was very accomodating with all of my requests before the concert. The residents enjoyed the music and asked for us to have them back again in the future. Thanks Slammer Jazz!
I've worked with Jim several times. He's able to play all styles of music
on vibes, trumpet, sax and flute. He's a true professional. First class!
Response from Slammer Jazz!:
