Looking for fun Irish entertainment....Jim will have the audience laughing, dancing and singing a long to the best Irish music, comedy songs and Irish humour.

A great voice that spans all styles. Country, Jazz, ballads, 60's to Rock & Roll
Guitarist playing everything from George Benson to Van Halen
Flautist from James Galway to Jethro Tull
Keyboards from Jazz to Jerry Lee Lewis
Fun Irish music on the Irish "Penny Whistle"
Comedy from traditional stand up to audience participation.
Jim's extensive experience in the entertainment field, gives him the ability to read an audience and deliver a "perfect" evening's entertainment.
Use of modern transmission equipment means he is not limited to the stage and once out amongst the audience he will quickly win them over with his sparkling personality.
Using all the latest technology to best advantage, Jim will perform as a complete band, but the accent is always on the "live" aspect of the performance.
As a corporate entertainer Jim's unique combination of music and comedy makes him ideal as an after dinner act. Instead of a speaker, consider an act that will have your delegates laughing and singing ... a superb way to make your event a success.

* For the most perfect wedding *
* The most successful corporate function *
* The best club entertainment *
