We asked Jimmy to play an acoustic guitar set for our cocktail hour and at our first meeting, Jimmy played a few songs for us. We could tell the passion Jimmy had for playing music. We honestly could have sat with Jimmy and listened to him play for hours. At our wedding, we had a lot of our guests tell us how nice of a touch it was having an acoustic guitar during cocktail hour and how good Jimmy was. We even had a family member wanting to break away from picture taking to hear a song!!
Although I never play my original music at weddings, here’s a little sample of my work. These are songs I wrote and recorded – featuring myself on vocals and 12 string acoustic guitar, Tommy Byrnes (Billy Joel’s long-time guitarist) and Frank Carillo (Peter Frampton, Carly Simon) on electric and acoustic guitars, Peter Gallinari on keyboards, Karl Allweir on bass guitar and Norman Del Tufo on drums. This was produced and engineered by Paul Orofino at Millbrook Sound Studios in New York.
