We had James play at our daughter’s dual graduation party and I’m still getting rave compliments about his wide range of music and capabilities from all who attended.

James is a great performer with a very versatile skillset.

He is confident on stage, making him a reliable performer to hire at any event or venue.

I’ve seen James around Rhode Island for years and he’s always been a crowd favorite.

He was kind enough to perform at my wedding and, as usual, was great. He is an amazing reader of a crowd’s mood and played a perfect mix of songs to make everyone happy.

He made a point to make sure that he catered to our wishes and picked songs that my fiancee and I liked. James is a great musician and an even nicer guy.

Great performance at The Hotel Viking in Newport. The few songs I got to hear (by chance on my way out) made a last minute glass of Sangria and snack a perfect way to enjoy Newport and "get away". Soulful and mellow and also upbeat. Look forward to hearing James again when he plays in the Boston area.

James was the perfect addition to our get together!


James has a beautiful voice and customized his play list based on the group's preferences and requests. 


He was extremely prompt, and brought everything he needed to the event, we didn't have to provide a single thing.


It was a really special event and night our family will never forget.

James entertained us at a birthday party. He was punctual, personable, flexible, and well-prepared for the occasion. Received many comments on my choice. Will hire James again and recommend him strongly to anyone who seeks well-curated music.

"The most interactive act we have at our beachfront venue."

On a last minute, I contacted James after remember seeing him play at Garden City over the holidays and extremely happy about the entire engagement from the very start. Not only a great musician but super person on all accounts. We had him play at our daughter’s dual graduation party this past weekend in the backyard and I’m still getting rave compliments about his wide range of music and capabilities from all who attended... it was a pleasure having him part of such a special family occasion at my home!!!

Enjoyed Happy Hour at the bar at The Hard Rock Cafe @ Foxwoods and had the bonus of getting to hear the amazing James Grande live for the first time!
His covers are SO GOOD! We stayed and had more drinks than planned to enjoy more of James's music! He is such a great artist, we will be checking to see where else he will be playing for sure!
