Jim played our cocktail hour at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn on May 19, 2007 and did a fantastic job. He played songs from a requestlist and other crowd pleasers. He took requests, playing the wedding song of another couple during the event to their delight. He was very professional and easy to get in touch leading up to and before the event. He was set up on time, and began playing promptly when guest arrived. Many people commented how his presence made the cocktail hour. I would highly recommend Jim for any function that you might have. Top notch performer, and he even plays The Who on piano!

Jim was awesome! I could not have hired a better organist for our wedding. He was very professional and extremely talented. He drove a long way to perform at our wedding and we could not be more appreciative. Jim definitely goes above and beyond and makes you feel comfortable from the very first contact with him. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. He is wonderful. Thanks for everything Jim!

Jim played for our wedding ceremony 9/23/06 and we were so pleased with his performance, his willingness to accomodate our special requests and his professionalism. Any song we requested, if Jim was not familiar with it, he learned it for us. One of the most impressive aspects of our event was that Jim was accompanied by a trumpet player and went out of his way to rehearse with the trumpet player weeks before the wedding to ensure the music would be perfect. We would highly recommend Jim ... my husband bad I, along with our guests are still singing his praises. Anne and Vince

Getting anything unknown over the internet can be scary, but that was how we chose Jim, sight and sound unseen. We were so pleasantly surprised and pleased by his performance and professionalism that I would definitely recommend him. Better yet, everyone who attended our wedding only had great things to say about him. He really helped make our wedding memorable Jan Most

Jim was fabulous. He is extremely talented, professional, flexible and friendly. I could not have asked for a better personality (warm, calming, adaptable, friendly) - he helped make my wedding extra special and I would recommend him to anyone!!!!

Jim Loftus was the absolute best. My new husband and I were very pleased w/ his performance at our wedding. Not to mention the dedication. His tire blew out on the way to our wedding, he still managed to get there on time and was as professional as could be. I will definately recommend Jim to anyone I know who is having a funcion/occasion. thank you so much Jim for your pleasant experience.

Jim Loftus was a last minute miracle! Three weeks before my wedding and, I still could not find a pianist that knew how to play the songs that I wanted. As soon as I put my request in for a pianist at, I received a response from Jim the next day, stating that he could play all the songs that I suggested. Before the rehearsal Jim made sure to keep in contact with me through email and telephone, just to see if anything had changed. His prices were wonderful and his personality is even better. We even came up with a last minute entrance and he knew just what song to play. I couldn’t have asked for a better pianist. He was absolutely great!

Hiring Jim to play at my daughter's wedding was a smart move. He is professional, personable and plays beautifully.

Picture this-- It is two weeks before your wedding. You have: the man, the food, the locations, and all of the pretty flowers, but no way to get up or down the aisle. Then, your knight in shinny armor comes galloping into your inbox and solves all of you bridal woes. I was an irresponsible bride who left most details until the last minute. I was so concerned with looking nice, I forgot to book an organist. In addition to simply booking an organist, I also had to get him or her approved. I was dealing with a rather stubborn music professor whose elitist attitude excluded all organists who hadn’t played his particular organ before. After a few phone conversations with Jim, I explain to him my predicament. He said “ok, so give me his phone number.” Taken back by this, I responded, “are you serious?” A half-hour later Jim had called me back to tell me that he had a meeting with the stubborn professor the very NEXT day! At no extra cost, he met with the professor just to prove the legitimacy of his talent. He even insisted on tuning the organ! I was so relived. Once he was officially my organist, he asked me all kinds of questions having to do with the ceremony—none of which, I knew the answers to. Because of my poor communication skills, I expected Jim to show up and just kinda play. I figured it couldn’t be that bad. So he showed up the day of my wedding, and my guests and I gaped with amazement. His enchanting voice and piano and organ playing exuded aptitude. After the ceremony, I got a million inquiries like “where did you find that guy?” and “can I have his contact information?” In short, Jim Loftus gleams professionalism and talent. I couldn’t have found a better organist if I had booked him three years in advance. He took so many burdens off of my shoulders, and with a smile, placed them on his own—that is a professional.

Jim was amazing, he fufilled our dreams with his musical talents at our Wedding. He is a lovely fellow and accomodated everthing that we wanted. The only down side is that we live in the UK otherwise we would hire him all the time.

Jim was wonderful to work with. He drove an incredible distance for our wedding. Jim took care of everything, making sure everything ran smoothly, and making my life easier! My guests loved him, and I especially appreciate his preparation of special requests. I would recommend him to anyone!
