  •  Jim,
    I’m the guy in the softball outfit yesterday. I just want to reiterate how talented you are and what a gift you have.
    Don’t forget I am doing Spamalot if you are interested.
    Talk to you soon,
    Tom F
  • Hi Jim,
    I got your business card after you sang at Carlucci's last evening and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed hearing you sing. As soon as I heard your first song I commented to the gentleman I was with that I thought you had a really great voice. He agreed and has some credibility as several of his family members are professional
    singers. (You actually sang one of your songs close to where we were sitting and then we were joined by our late arriving friend who was unfortunately being interrupted by medical calls last night).  All three of us though thought you were excellent.
    We did tell our waitress we felt you were excellent  (she agreed) and next time I'm at Carlucci's I will let the manager know as well. I hope they have you back. My personal preferences were your Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Phantom etc. renditions (but I'm getting older).   :)   Although all were wonderful.
    Thanks for an enjoyable evening.
    Sincerely,
    Patti S
  • I'm sorry i didn't get a chance to go see him but, yes, i received several compliments back from both customers, the DJ and management.
  • Thanks James….Would love to have you back!

  • Jim,
    You left yesterday before I could thank you for the outstanding gift you gave to my husband's memory.  You have a beautiful voice and I hope to hear you in the future on disc or at a theatre without people in conversation as you sing.  Good luck and again thank you.
