A few wedding testimonials:

Jim was amazing to work with! From the first few emails we sent to the last, he was always very responsive and willing to work with our requests. He allows you to pick one song which he will learn for the ceremony (if not in his repertoire), and he played ours beautifully! We are so glad we found Jim and don’t think our ceremony would have been as special without him. - Chelsea (married on 5/11/19) reviewed on weddingwire.com

There aren't enough superlatives to describe Jim and his skills: Mad skills, very easy to work with, flexible, and able to hit a curveball; we wanted to add a song not in his repertoire and - on very short notice - Jim was able to accomodate us. Jim made our night positively magical, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. - Fred S. married on 11/18/2018 reviewed on weddingwire.com 

We highly recommend Jim. He was so easy to work with and exceptionally professional. He was there early, totally prepared with all the songs we had asked for, and played beautifully. We had several guests comment on the lovely music. The portion of our ceremony with background music went very long. Jim's response was seamless. He kept playing and worked in several more songs that were perfect for the moment. His work is a great value. He is a top-notch professional and charges less than most of his caliber. He even provided a microphone (and a stand at the last minute!) for our officiant, which saved us having to rent one. Thanks Jim! - Erin B. Wedding on 6/10/17

 

Jim was amazing! We absolutely loved the music - he is so talented! It was so cool that he learned a song just for us and also customized the ceremony and cocktail hour with the music that we love. Thank you so much!

My husband and I knew right away that we wanted a guitarist to play at our wedding ceremony. As I was searching online, I came across Jim Falbo, and I couldn't have found a more perfect musician for our day. He had such a wide range of songs from his repertoire that I had no problem picking out which ones would be the right fit for our special day! He was great to work with- very professional, fast in responding to questions and very reasonably priced! All of our guests raved about Jim and I am so glad we chose him! -Kelsey N. wedding on 6/11/16 reviewed on weddingwire.com


Jim played for our wedding in June and he was brilliant. He beautifully played the song he learned for our wedding and most helpful, he managed to go with the flow as parts of our ceremony shifted last minute. He went with the changes and played accordingly and beautifully. Many of our guests also commented on his playing and professionalism. We highly recommend him. - Deborah H. wedding on 6/5/16. reviewed on weddingwire.com

Jim was absolutely incredible to work with during the entire process of getting our wedding music prepared. He met with us on a few occasions to make recommendations and he provided us with samples to help us select the best music for our ceremony. We also selected the option to have Jim play one selection not usually in his repertoire. We selected music written by a friend of ours who would not be attending the wedding. Jim did an amazing job with the song. Our guests raved about how great the music was and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding musician. - Jennifer E. wedding on 5/7/16 reviewed on theknot.com



"Jim did the most amazing job with our ceremony music. I originally was going to go with just playing a CD for our ceremony with a couple songs but we found Jim online, I went and checked out a couple of his YouTube videos and immediately fell in love with his version of "All of Me" by John Legend. I didn't want it to be cheesy having a song probably everyone had chosen but Jim's version is completely unique and BEAUTIFUL. It was one of those things that when you hear something amazing you get chills all over your body and I just said yes, we have to have him. I had been worried that my husband to be wouldn't have the reaction of "WOW!" when I walked down the aisle because we were going to do pictures beforehand and he would already see me but Jim definitely helped change my thoughts and I knew he would be the difference in getting that wow factor and my now husband said he was definitely holding back tears (and he never cries!) so I think that says something about Jim's talent for sure! I would recommend him to anyone, he has an amazing talent and you would be lucky to hire him! Thanks Jim!" - Cydney G. (wedding on 4/30/16) reviewed on weddingwire.com

"Jim is an incredible musician with outstanding people-skills. Everyone came up to me to ask who our guitarist was and told us how much they loved the music he played. Jim is super, super easy to work with and just a joy to be around. He was one of the best choices we made for our special day and if I did it over again right now I'd hire him again." - Lynn M. (wedding on 3/4/2016) reviewed on weddingwire.com


"Jim's arrangements are beautiful and he plays flawlessly. He has great communication and is extremely friendly. Jim's repertoire covers anything you'd want played or he is willing to learn new material. I would highly recommend him! He made our ceremony beautiful, simple, and personal. Loved him!" - Heather A. (wedding on 10/31/15).

"Jim was fantastic to work with. Not only was his musical performance during our ceremony beautiful - many guests mentioned throughout the night they loved the acoustic music - but he was courteous and easy to work with. As milestones arrived for our planning, he would help keep us on track to ensure he had what he needed for a wonderful performance. Thank you, Jim, for helping us have a magical day. Your music helped set the perfect soundtrack for our wedding. Our guests had so much fun identifying the different songs and then sharing memories those stores evoked. Thank you again!" - Jennifer (wedding on 10/3/15). reviewed on weddingwire.com

Jim Falbo was wonderful to work with for our wedding. I loved the music he played at our ceremony. It was perfect. Jim was professional and prompt in answering all emails and calls. He helped me through choosing the music and even sent me a CD of some of his work. This was so helpful especially planning from out of state. Jim also learned a specific song for our ceremony that was very special to us. I would absolutely recommend Jim for your wedding and/or event! Thank you Jim! - Amy N. (wedding on 7/25/15). reviewed on weddingwire.com

Jim was an an amazing musician to work with for our wedding. He was professional and highly musically talented. His performance was truly memorable and one of my favorite parts if the wedding. Thank you Jim! - Natalie E. (wedding on 7/18/15). reviewed on weddingwire.com


Jim was amazing at our wedding! There was a last minute change that he wasn't informed of before the ceremony (sorry!) but he was able to handle it without any hesitation. We were so happy we had him play at our wedding, it really added that special touch we were looking for! I would highly recommend him to play at any event, as he is very professional, fun, and easy to work with. - Jillian B. (wedding on 7/10/15).

"Jim was fantastic. He played guitar for our wedding on 6/14 and provided a beautiful accompaniment to our ceremony. Not only was he a great guitarist, he was super easy to work with. Emails always received a prompt response, he was very helpful in his comments on the ceremony and worked with us to provide what we wanted. As part of his fee, he will arrange a piece of your choosing not normally in his repertoire. I highly suggest taking him up on this. He arranged Raspberry Beret by Prince for us and it was fantastic! We were planning an outside ceremony and didn't know for sure that we could be outside until 45 minutes before the wedding. Jim was flexible and set up quickly as soon as we knew where we would be. He was very reliable and professional. It was great to have amazing music without having to worry about it." - Mike O. (wedding: 6/14/2014)

"Jim is not only a wonderful musician, but he's also great to work with when planning an event. The scheduling process was very easy, and he was always quick to respond to emails. He helped us select the best music for our wedding ceremony and played it absolutely beautifully! Many of our guests even commented on how much they enjoyed the music. We felt very lucky to have him as our musician." - Melissa T. (wedding on 6/27/2014).

"Jim was wonderful. I got many complements from my guests on what a great guitarist he was. He was on time, responded to my emails quickly and was very professional. I can't say enough good things about him. Most importantly his music was beautiful and his talent and passion for the guitar shines through his playing. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for a guitarist for their special event." (Kim P.) (Wedding: 06/08/2013)
