We were absolutely thrilled with James Davis!!! We hired James to play during our ceremony and for several hours of the reception afterwards. We picked out a few specific songs for him to play during the bridal party entrance/exit and then left things up to him for the rest of the time.

James is a wonderfully talented musician, and my wedding guests LOVED having the beautiful and mellow guitar music. My maid of honor and father were so impressed with his music that they could hardly keep their eyes off him!

I would highly recommend James Davis play for anyone during their wedding!

My daughters wedding in Allenspark, CO was like a dream. James was an integral part of it. Hew was a professional, accommodating and an excellent musician. He was the only music for the ceremony and provided background music for the cocktail hour.
His rendition of "I will" as my daughters processional was awesome.
Recorded music would not hold a candle to this consummate professional. I recommend him with no hesitation

I honestly think it was one of those things that made our wedding stand out. Thanks James!

James and The Duo were amazing!!! We had a small wedding and The Duo was perfect for the reception. James played solo for the ceremony and we received so many compliments on his talent! The whole experience with James was so easy and stress free from the beginning. I even changed the father/daughter dance a few days before the wedding and he was fine with it.

Thank you for doing a fantastic job and making the experience enjoyable! We look forward to hearing you play in the future!

Having James play at our wedding was a special part of the ceremony. He did a wonderful job! Guests were able to go out to the wedding spot early and listen to music as they were seated. He also did a great job ending/starting music as appropriate based on where we were in the ceremony itself. He was also very flexible and helpful when we were selecting music. I would HIGHLY recommend him for your wedding!

We were lucky to book James as our guitarist for our outdoor wedding. He was easy to communicate with during the planning process and was very helpful when it came to song selection. About 2 weeks before the wedding, we decided we wanted a particular song played as the wedding march (a song not found on a typical wedding ceremony list). James did not tell us we were crazy, but instead was able to learn it in that short amount of time. Our guests go to enjoy him pre-ceremony and the music during the ceremony itself was seamless. He didn’t need anything from us but the songs, time and place so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. James is a bride’s dream!

James did a great job with our ceremony music and the acoustic guitar was a really nice touch to the outdoor ceremony. I think his service was excellent for the cost, my only recommendation would be to ask for amplification for an outdoor ceremony as it was a little quiet considering the wind. Other than that I think it was a perfect addition to our ceremony!

Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without James. With everything one might be worrying about the day of their wedding, James made sure he was on his game. We asked to have three of our very special songs arranged for our ceremony, and before and after the ceremony, he filled in with his own original music - which was pretty amazing all its own.

Aside from his talent on the guitar, what really impressed me was that he wasn't there as a "vendor". Wedding ceremonies are one of his talents, but it felt like I had an old friend playing our wedding because he simply loves playing music. Book him, folks. He's good.

Sorry that this is an anonymous review so I don't know what wedding this is - and am not sure what I could have done to receive 5 stars - though I do appreciate the kind and thoughtful words.
