"Jeff James brings a professional, joyfully entertaining performance every time he plays at our restaurant. He involves the guests, taking sing-along syle requests, while at the same time displaying incredible musical talent. I will continue to book Jeff James on a regular basis!"

"I just wanted to send you a very big thank you for the awesome job Jeff did playing at my Client Appreciation Event. My clients all had a great time and I am very sure that it was mostly due to Jeff 's musical talents and outgoing attitude. I really loved the song books and the huge variety of music that he sings and plays so well. I don't know if you realized it or not but over all there was over 300 people there that day and they all commented on the great job Jeff did. I really look forward to my next party and hope that Jeff will be able to do it again for me."

"Jeff James was so easy to work with. We contacted each other a couple of times before our reception and he was very courteous and easy to work with. The day of the event he was prompt, courteous and his singing was fantastic. We had 75 people at our event and they had so much fun listening to Jeff. He had a great song list of various types of music. We asked him to stay an hour later and he had no problem with doing so. His fee was very reasonable, especially for his talent. Thank you Jeff for making our wedding reception such a success!

"Jeff James was absolutely amazing!! He made our wedding ceremony all the more perfect!! Before the wedding, he came and sat with me for a while and went over everything that he was going to do during the ceremony. He did a great job reassuring me that everything would go perfectly. Jeff is an extremely talented guy! During the recieving line after the ceremony, everyone was asking me who he was, and where i had found him. I was very pleased with his performance, professional attitude, and great personality. I would recommend Jeff to anyone. He was wonderful! Erin Kodesh

"Jeff James did a fantastic job at our wedding ceremony! He exceeded all our expectations. Leading up to the event, he was easy to work with and very accommodating to our requests. In the final preparations, he brought his experience forward, assisting with things I hadn't thought of for the flow of the ceremony. When I first heard his voice at the ceremony, my heart just leapt - he really was that perfect finishing touch on such an important day. His music was soulful, rich and mesmerizing. I had guests of all ages coming up to me all day begging for his information so they could buy a CD or see him play somewhere. He did an exceptional job and I highly recommend him for your own event. We're only sorry we didn't ask him to play at the reception too. ~Melissa & John Hickman

"Unbelievable! Can't say enough positive things about Jeff! Jeff got a flat tire on our way to play for our wedding, but he still arrived and performed flawlessly. I cannot put into words how wonderful and great Jeff is to work with. He learned every song I asked him to learn for our ceremony. Jeff is amazing and made our ceremony even that much more special! I would recommend Jeff without any hesitation.!

"What Luck ~ Jeff James had a cancellation for the night of my niece''s graduation party. His music selection & wonderful guitar & vocals were PERFECT. "Best Graduation Party Ever" was one of the quotes from the evening. My only suggestion would be to Book Him NOW, while hes affordable & because he is going "Big Time". Great Job Jeff, everybody from 13-85 yrs old loved listening to you perform."
--Paul and Stacy Marion-- Inver Grove Heights, MN
"Jeff James provided wonderful entertainment for our annual get together. Every one raved about his talent and thoroughly enjoyed the selection of songs that he played no matter the age. This was an outdoor setting and he was the perfect person for our venue. Jeff is extremely talented and our guests kept him busy well into the night. Thanks again, Jeff, for a great time....Let''s do it again !!!"
--Bob and Greta Lintelman-- Fairmont, MN
"What can we say about Jeff?! My best friend, her husband, Chris and I went to see him at a club. He was even more amazing than I remembered him to be when I saw him at my best friends wedding shower 10 years ago. Naturally, when we began to plan our wedding, there was not a doubt in our minds who the person we would ask to sing at our outdoor ceremony would be. When Chris and I started seeing each other, one song that was very special to us was "I Melt" by Rascall Flats. This song wasn't exactly in Jeff's playlist, but he graciously agreed to learn it and play it for us. Well it turned out great! We got so many compliments from friends and family and he just made that day so special for us. He sang beautifully! We will continue to attend Jeff's concerts whenever we can and would DEFINITELY recommend him for anyone's special occasion. Our only regret....we didn't hire him for the ENTIRE night! You're awesome Jeff and thanks again for making the night an event we'll always remember!
--Chris and Lori Morgan, Zimmerman MN
"The ''Love Fest'' was a huge success this year and Jeff James was an exceptional addition to the venue. You have to hand it to him, he played outdoors in 90+ heat and humidity, with no breeze and held the crowd enthralled. He also hung in there for the ''one mores'' more than once. He is a fantastic musician and a wonderful person too. Everyone there enjoyed his music and getting to know him a bit better. He puts every part of himself into his music, and it is obvious that he enjoys playing and singing as much as the crowd enjoys listening to him. Jeff''s plays a wide variety of music so there is a song or two in his repertoire for everyone to enjoy. We''d love to have him back again. Thanks again Jeff ! We love you !"

"I was married last fall to the love of my life in a beautiful outdoor ceremony and Jeff was a major reason why our day was perfect. Jeff played the exact songs I had wanted for my ceremony. At the reception is when I started receiving compliments from our guests. What a talented singer and songwriter Jeff is; he truly has a beautiful voice. The whole night my guests were making requests that ranged from country to rock and roll and of course we were treated to some of his original songs. Jeff and I spoke before the ceremony and I made a request for him to play “A Love Without End” by George Strait so I could dance with my Dad. This song has a lot of special meaning to me and my Dad so you can imagine what happened when it started. My Dad looked over at me (called be by my childhood nickname) and smiled and we both started to tear up. It was one of the many cherished memories of that night. My father in law bought two CD’s for my husband and me that night and now I’ve got an everlasting gift that I can listen to whenever I want and it will bring me back to that wonderful night. Anyone who is lucky enough to have Jeff a part of their special event or occasion will definitely echo these comments."

"Jeff''s performance was outstanding! We invited Jeff into our home for a private party and our friends have been raving about his music ever since. He eagerly played a broad range of requests from both adults and teenagers and had them all enthralled by his voice and guitar talent. Forced inside by bad weather, Jeff was able to quickly set up and accommodate the desires of everyone at the party. We almost didn't let him go at the end of the night/morning because everyone was so entertained! In addition to his music, Jeff was a pleasure to get to know and have in our home. I''d highly recommend his talents -- we can''t wait to have him back!"
--John & Phoebe Stavig-- Orono, MN
"Whenever you have the chance to see this masterful singer/songwriter...DO IT! You''ll never be sorry. Most anything you want to hear, he can do. Though you should request his originals..."Gonna Get Over You" is a personal favorite!"
--Sharlene Spencer - Inn Place Lounge, Club Manager ---Nashville, TN
"Music has always been one the greatest loves of my life. Before I was engaged to be married I was already making plans for my wedding. I wanted music that not just my wife and I would enjoy, but music that everyone in attendance at our wedding would like. There was never any debate over it. We wanted Jeff James to be the musician at our wedding. It did not matter that my wedding was in Minnesota and that Jeff was living in Tennessee at the time. No amount of miles was going to prevent me from having Jeff play at my wedding. A few years earlier I had heard Jeff play at my best friend''s wedding. For the rest of the night I heard compliment after compliment from all the guests. Jeff was a hit! And so it was no surprise that at my wedding I got the same kind of response. Twenty - thirty people must have told me how beautiful and fun my wedding was and how Jeff was a major reason."
