My group and I play upbeat, hip, fun, funky (mostly) original modern jazz. We swing, groove and play soulfully from our hearts. We bring diverse sounds from the wellspring of the blues to sounds from all over the world to keep it fresh and exciting. When you're having fun we are.
It was a pleasure working with Jim! His responses to requested information were immediate, pleasant, polite, and professional. Jim even sent songs (after he was booked!) and they were always a treat. The audience loved them, you are in for some really great music!!

What to Expect
Based on your budget we can perform as a solo, duo, trio, quartet and more.
You can expect and will get musicians on time, dressed professionally and ready to give you a great performance. You can expect great fun live music from players who have done this before.
I've been playing guitar since I was 11. Shortly after I started I heard Jimi Hendrix and that was it.
I have a masters degree in music, I've played with Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Heath, Lew Soloff, Mike Mossman, Jeb Patton, Larry Ridley, Jim Ridl, the Jazz Lobsters, the Brookdale Big Band and the Toms River Big Band.
Music of mine has appeared in over 40 Tv shows, 2 commercials and two indie films. You may have heard of a few former students of mine too including Charlie Puth, Colton Kayser and Phoebe Ryan.
If you hire my group for your party or event you'll be glad you did.
