Jim is available for private parties or
public performances. He has played at many functions (anniversaries,
benefits, weddings, corporate functions, Bah-mitzvahs, cocktail parties,
etc.) in the Northern Ohio (U.S.A.) area during the past 10 years. His

of sound. Jim is no longer limited to one sound (piano), but has a full
compliment of other natural and synthetic instruments at his
disposal (listen to samples under "Pricing Option 2" ...link below). If you
want more than "instrumental" music, Jim can add vocals, as
heard in "Pricing Option 3" samples (click on link below).
