I live in Canada and wanted a unique experience for my sister (who was turning 50). I came across J. Black on Gig Salad. I watched some of his YT videos and thought his voice was very nice and his performance was soulful. I asked via Gig Salad J. if he would come to my sister's door and sing "Happy Birthday" and "Celebrate." He was very quick to respond positively. On my sister's big day, J. arrived at her door. She was so surprised! The neighbors came out to watch... she says "it was the most amazing and special birthday present ever!" J. did a great job, very professional and talented. My family is so impressed with the video he sent. If I get down to Sac to see my family, we are thinking of hiring J. for a house party. Thank you J!
If you are looking for an exceptionally talented, easy to work with, fun and engaging entertainer - look no further. J. Black (The Party Man) played at our corporate event in San Jose, CA and he was the hit of the weeklong event!! I was looking for an upbeat entertainer who would interact with our mixed bag of corporate employees and before the night was done he had our VP of Sales out on the dance floor. His show is as varied as the people in the room and he can play music that represents several decades. His dynamic act will appeal to anybody who loves to get out there and dance! Our favorites were the tunes of the 80's, but he played everything that we requested right up to current hits. We literally danced the night away! As an event planner, I was thrilled with how J Black interacted and connected with each and every person that was in that room. J brings everything he needs to produce an energetic act with a club-like setting, changing our small card room into what felt like a bustling night club - lighting and fun all inclusive. All I heard the next day was how great J. was and how much fun he injected in our corporate meeting. J is professional, responsive and very people oriented. The hotel staff liked him so much that he has been added to their referral base for future guests looking for excellent entertainment for their events. If you want an excellent show that includes exceptional, professional talent to liven up your event then J. Black (The Party Man) is the one. I can't wait to have another opportunity to work with J. Black!
I was at an event at a yacht club, and J. Black The Party Man was performing. He was fantastic. Great singer with lots of charisma. He kept the crowd of 100 entertained and on their feet. The best part was that he was so versatile and played all sorts of fun tunes. I highly recommend him for any event where you want a great singer and performer.

What to Expect
The Party Man delivers a high powered dance show and draws his audience into his performance. "Performing is a two-way street!" Says the Party Man. He accomplishes this with several methods including call and response techniques and allowing the audience to become part of the entire party experience. He has been known to do the electric slide with the audience while singing and playing the Key-Tar!
Sometimes, a really smooth groove can seem to almost infect your bloodstream. After just one listen, it can grab onto your heart, grab onto your mind, and attach itself to your soul and never let go. That is exactly what happens after just one listen to the new track by singer, songwriter and producer J. Black.
The soulful vocal stylings of California based R&B artist J. Black are evident from the first soothing notes on his new single, DISTANT MEMORIES. This single is a fluid, mid-tempo R&B serenade about nostalgia for times past and about longing for a love that has been lost. You can feel the emotion in every perfectly pitched note delivered by this up-and-coming urban sensation.
In the field of Contemporary R&B, there are many hopeful contenders; there are few, however, who rise to the top in the eyes of music industry experts. J. Black has caught the avid attention of many in the business, such as Barry Currin, co-owner of Nashville-based music publisher Screaming Tomato Music Publishing. Currin signed the performer for the single LET ME KNOW, from the E.P. titled A PIECE OF MY SOUL (currently available on iTunes).
Music insider and West Coast rap pioneer DJ Flash, with iwest Entertainment/Rappers Rap Records, says of Black: “We ran across J. Black’s Reverbnation profile and signed him for a West Coast Classic featuring Ronnie Hudson, Zapp, Snoop Dogg, Too Short, E40, Rappin 4tay and Celle Cell.” According to Flash, “J. Black’s vocals were exactly what we needed to compliment Ronnie Hudson’s West Coast Poplock.” The music heavyweight also adds: “J. Black delivered just what we needed.” Clearly, there is a strong new industry buzz about this rock solid performer.
When you are lucky enough to attend a J. Black performance, you witness not only the music, but you get an immersive and interactive experience, regardless the venue. As a composer and pianist, Black takes to the keys at his shows and tickles the ivories just right. Just as his lilting voice draws you in, so, too, does his accompaniment. It is infused with the same rich and satisfying emotion that you hear in his voice; you FEEL him. The singer/songwriter says of his live performances: “I give my supporters everything I have within me because it’s my place to show ‘em a great time!”
The talented and versatile performer is no stranger to accolades. Accomplishments include a title as 2012 Elk Grove Western Idol Winner, as well as being named in the top ten for “Best Wedding Music” on the KCRA “A List” 2012.
Black may be cut from the same cloth as artists such as Kenny “Baby Face” Edmonds and R. Kelly. However, as a performer of true versatility and varied talents, he is not content to continue the tradition of his predecessors; he blazes original R&B paths of his own. Through stirring lyrics, impressive and memorable hooks, and a soothing and recognizable vocal style, J. Black is establishing for himself a solid place in the Contemporary R&B constellation.
