“James was amazing in every way. He was responsive to each and every communication. He provided an appropriate play list and accommodated all requests for additional songs. He showed up prior to the scheduled time to set up. He played throughout the event. His guitar playing ranged from emotionally moving to vibrant. Will call upon James again, Thanks,” - Tom C. 5/11/2019

“Wonderful sounding guitar. My guests loved his talent. Very happy I booked him for my wedding reception.” - Jaclyn A. 5/4/2019

“James was great! He really helped make our day great, we would highly recommend James to anyone.” - Chris P. 4/7/2019

“If you're looking for someone who is both professional and a pleasure to work with look no further than James Erickson. If you're looking for the perfect blend of acoustical guitar music and range of song and music choices look no further than James Erickson. If Gigmaster hit a home run by connecting me to James in the first place then having James play at my private dinner party was a "walk-off" grand slam. His music was everything and more that I hoped for and exceeded my expectations. Thank you James for making the party a celebration.” - David F. 12/22/2018

He was just AMAZING! If you are looking for an acoustic guitarist for your ceremony or cocktail hour, he is your guy. He happily performed every song that we requested flawlessly and was great to work with. Just a true professional! Hiring him was one of the best decisions that we made. - Jeanette and Brian F. 11/10/2018

“My daughter's rooftop wedding was beautifully enhanced by the music of James' guitar. His music greeted guests, and later he played a lovely recessional, and gave the evening a touch of class. My daughter was particular about what music she wanted, and James was flexible, patient, and accommodated her every wish. I wholeheartedly recommend James.” - David P. 9/1/2018

“James played guitar for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour just a few weeks ago! We could not be happier! From the first contact we had with James he was incredibly warm, helpful and patient. Leading up to our wedding he answered all of our questions quickly and made the entire process incredibly easy. When I was worried about the song I chose to walk down to being too long he sent me a video of him playing an abbreviated version that was spot on. He is incredibly talented, and we truly loved working with him. We would absolutely recommend him to others. Thank you James for helping to make our day so memorable!”-Emily + Scott 9/16/18

"Thank YOU James from the bottom of our hearts for the beautiful performance during our Wedding ceremony! James made the process so easy from the beginning. He consistently made us feel like we were in great hands, and boy did he live up to it! Our wedding guests are still raving about our ceremony and how incredible the music was. James’ talent is one of a kind, you can see his passion and love for music, along with people.
We HIGHLY recommend James and can’t wait to book him again for future events!!!"

"James Erickson was Perfect!! James and his music filled in the gaps for a party of 70, of partygoers ranging in age from teens to twighlighters. His repertoire satisfied the varied crowd, mixing it up with oldies, jazz, soft rock, sentimental love songs, etc., recognizable but not overpowering. James was professional, on time, low key, and everyone enjoyed his entertainment. Lovely gentleman! I would hire him in a New York minute for my next event." - Nina Sloan 4/22/17
