Mr. Jones,
“On January 6, 2018, A great time was had by all.  The Jimi Smooth Band and Show was awesome.  It was my wife’s 50th birthday party and the music and dancing never stopped from beginning to end.  The band was tremendous, the music was so fitting, and of course Mr. Jimi Smooth gave a show for the ages.  Being a Birthday Party, we had attending guest members of young and old.  No one was disappointed.  Everyone danced the night away.  All I have heard since the party is ‘Great Party – Where did you get that band, they were Great’. Thank You each and every member of the band, from the musicians, the added Female and male vocalist and Mr. Jimi Smooth himself. It was all Fantastic – Thank You!”
Mr. Jones, My Review

Jimi did a great job. I hired him because I had seen him at another wedding

and he gets people dancing. He gets people dancing of all ages, which I

think is what some bands neglect…..the music he plays is timeless and is

I want to thank you and each of your band members for such a great show. Everyone absolutely loved your talent and energy. Elizabeth was thrilled.It was a generous gift to allow Andrew and his group to perform. Few other professionals would be willing to accommodate such a request, not to mention sharing your set. I cannot tell you how much that meant to Elizabeth and me.You made a great evening. Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

They attracted the most turn out of people thus far (excluding the O’Jays performance). The audience loved their renditions of old classics by Barry White, The Temptations, etc. Jimi Smooth had so much energy on stage, which caught everyone’s attention. People came and danced in front of the stage, and when the band passed out their free CD’s at the end of the performance everyone ran over to receive one. Jimi Smooth & Hittime are definitely going to be booked for Live! 2011.Thanks

EVERYONE loved him. I had adults and friends (young and old) all commenting

him. He was a great MC and really knew how to get everyone on the dance

Jimi Smooth was great right from the beginning. He called a couple of days before the wedding to follow up with me and asked if there was anything additional he could do to help. He was set up early on the day and did a good job coorinating the introductions of the wedding party, the breaks, and the music. Every one of my family and friends asked me, “where did you find your band?” The dance floor was crowded all night and I even got to sing some back up for the band (frightening for my guests)!Jimi Smooth was a real hit. Some of my friends have booked bands three times the price and have not been as satisfied. I think he is a real steal!Thanks so much for your help in all of the coordinating, I will be recommending Jimi Smooth in the future!Annie
