Jim Armstrong Jim Armstrong

From solo jazz or classical guitar to jazz combos or larger dance bands, Jim Armstrong takes great pride in the quality and integrity of the music he produces today as a soloist or with various combinations of talented and professional collaborators. With over three decades of experience with rock concert acts, show bands and jazz groups he continues as a dedicated professional musician offering music in a variety of combinations and styles.

Along with his work as a freelance guitarist with small jazz groups or dance bands as well as with larger orchestras, in recent years he has worked diligently at perfecting his skills as the perfect classical guitarist for wedding ceremonies. Playing romantic music on the guitar is a love of his life and lends itself beautifully to many types of occasions.

There is also an effortless transition to the cool sound of electric jazz guitar in the style of his influences, Wes Montgomery, George Benson et al. which serves to complement almost any sophisticated and romantic setting such as fine dining, wedding receptions, private house parties or any occasion that intrinsically is a celebration of life itself. The music can serve as a most appropriate and beautiful soundtrack for your occasion.

Weathering forty years in the music business through a wide variety of musical situations and styles have provided him with a most diverse repertoire and the ability to adapt to any situation or whim. Since his roots are in blues and rock and roll, the classic pop and rock hits of the last 50 years are still in his heart and mind so when the occasion calls for it, the more popular party dance music can be provided as well. And if a piece of music is not in his repertoire the chances are good that it can be easily acquired.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
