I specialize in singing at the Wedding Mass and/or the reception itself. I can work with my band or by myself (if you have a DJ) for the reception. I can also bring my own soundman/DJ or a piano player. I can also supply an organist if you need for the Wedding Mass.
I hired Jack for my dad's 70th surprise party, and he did not disappoint. He sounds just like Frank Sinatra himself! He got the birthday celebrant involved and everyone enjoyed. Thanks, Jack - we will definitely book again.
We hired Jack for an intimate birthday party, he and his partner were wonderful!!! So fun & entertaining!! Couldn’t have asked for anything better!!!
Profesional. Puntual. Beautiful rendition of each song throughout the entire mass. Thank you for turning a Saturday in one of the most memorable days of our lives.
We so enjoyed Jack's talents at our son's wedding ceremony. His singing was beautiful and very much added to the beauty of the ceremony. Jack is very professional and very patient in working with the bride and groom in determining what they are looking for in their ceremony. Jack also has a very diverse repertoire of music that he knows and can share. Our wedding guests really enjoyed Jack's talents. Would strongly recommend Jack to sing for you.
