Jim was an amazing guitarist at an amazing price. Having someone play at your wedding is very important and can be very difficult if you don’t have any close friends or family that are musically talented. Enter Jim. Jim is very talented and has a beautiful gift. He does also have a unique tool in his arsenal – he has a guitar that also has a harp extension and can play beautiful renditions of your favorite songs. We had him play “Cannon in D” as I walked down the aisle and it was absolutely beautiful. He also has a deep catalog of songs that are not as traditional – my husband and our bridal party walked down to “Hey Yah” by Outkast. Jim was open to other song suggestions we had and offered to learn our request “Lava” (from Pixar). He did great with it and played it during our unity ceremony. Jim played Beatles and other classic hits during our cocktail hour – all songs our guests enjoyed! Jim was very responsive, professional, friendly and overall a great guy. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for some beautiful acoustics at their wedding. He’s a very talented individual!

Chelsea, Thank you for your kind words! It was my pleasure to play at your wedding! And you'll be happy to know I suggested "Lava" to another bride, and she has chosen it for her Unity Candle ceremony. :)
Thank you again! Sincerely, Jim Olsen

Jim was awesome to work with! He was great at communicating leading up to our wedding and offered to meet up with us to play songs for us to choose. Unfortunately we live out of town and weren't able to so he sent us links of songs for suggestions and helped us pick out all of our music. He even learned a new song we requested with only a week notice! Above all else, he is a very talented player!! Jim played our ceremony and our social hour and did a wonderful job! We received endless compliments on the music from our guests who especially enjoyed the harp guitar.

We highly recommend working with Jim Olsen. We hired Jim to play at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and he did an excellent job. We received a number of compliments from our guests. Leading up to our big day, we had the added challenge of planning our event from afar. Jim was very easy to work with and was helpful in making sure the songs played matched our personalities and set the mood we wanted. Jim was also great when it came to coordinating setup with our venue, which we really appreciated.
