Thank you so much for playing at my party. It was a shame that it was so hot everyone sat outside but we were all listening and bopping our heads. I had lots of comments on how good the music was and I really enjoyed it so thank you.

James played at small private party for my Dads 70th. I had told him prior to the date the sort of music my Dad loved and he delivered, including the finale of his favourite ever song! Dad absolutely loved it and really enjoyed James. Thank you.

I saw Jim perform and he was really very good. Very talented and an amazing singer. Several other people in the pub commented on how great his voice was. Really enjoyed watching him and would definitely see him again.
