Amazing pianist!

Jim Tiernan from Blue Sky Atlanta performed at my wedding ceremony and it

was absolutely amazing. He was prepared and even took the time to learn songs that were special to me from Little Women and Anne of Green Gables. The ceremony was absolutely magical because of the piano component. I have used Blue Sky Atlanta often through my position at Cherokee Town and Country Club and I can always count on them to produce amazing talent for any event. I highly recommend them for weddings or any type of special event.

Jim,

Thanks so much for making our party fabulous! The band was great, super, extraordinary etc. etc.!!! Everyone had a great time and I hold you responsible! My feet let me know the next day that I had on my dancing shoes. Take care and hope we can do it at least once more in this lifetime. If you ever need a reference let me know.
Fondly, Boots

p.s. I just wanted to add my 2 cents and tell you that Blue Sky was Awesome Friday night June 5, 2009 at the Chastain Horse Park, but you could tell by there never being room on the dance floor. All of our friends talked about the music so we hope you get some future dates from it , you deserve it.

Regards,
Ken-Bob
Hi Jim,

Married life has been great. I cannot believe it has been two and a half months already! Time flew and we had tons to do after the wedding!
We could not have been happier with the level of service and wonderful performance you all gave. It was exactly what we wanted and we have had many comments about how wonderful you all were. Thank you so much for giving our wedding the atmosphere we dreamed of!
Can’t wait to hear you again at our friend’s wedding in September!

Hi Jim

Thank you! You and the Blue Sky Band did a wonderful job at our wedding reception at the Atlanta National Golf Club on Saturday November 1, 2008.. I know our guests had a great time. We’ve received a lot of compliments about your performance and how much everyone enjoyed themselves. Even my dad, for the short time he was able to attend the reception, enjoyed your performance, which is always a tough sell because he’s a professional musician! So glad you guys had a good time as well! You definitely earned my recommendation.

Thanks again,

Suzanne and Jim

Dear Jim:

You haven’t lost your touch! The music for my daughter’s wedding on the 31st of August, 2008 was wonderful! Your band played such a diverse repertoire and you exceeded my expectations. Because you kept the energy level high, the dance floor was packed all night. I was surprised to see so many people dancing throughout the evening, which is a credit to Blue Sky’s wonderful skills.

The Naylor Hall package includes a D.J. but they don’t know what they are missing. It was so nice to have you host the reception as the touch of class would be missing if you were not there. When I had used your services in the past, I never thought I would be in a position to need a band again. I am just thrilled and hope another occasion will arrive in the future when I call on you again. You are terrific!

Sincerely,

Sandra H.

Dear Jim:

Thanks you so much for helping to make our wedding day such a blast! You and your band “Blue Sky” are truly a talented bunch and we had the time of our lives dancing to your MUSIC!

Our guests kept telling us what a great time they had. Many have told us they had the best time they’ve ever had at a wedding! We will be sure to recommend you to anyone we know who’s looking for some great entertainment.

Jim,

I wanted to THANK YOU again for such a wonderful performance last Friday for our Atlanta Braves’ Hall of Fame Luncheon at Turner Field’s 755 Club. I have heard nothing but great reviews about your fantastic tunes. It really was a great addition to make our luncheon first class this year. I will let you know if anything comes up in the future and Im of course recommending you to those that are looking for a first class pianist.

Take Care,

Jim,

Thank you for providing The Blue Sky Band, the perfect music for our daughter’s wedding celebration at the Ritz-Carlton on Saturday June 10, 2006.

Normally, most of my friends are very quiet and don’t dance, but your band had everyone on the dance floor the whole night. Your music appealed to all ages – from the 5-year-old flower girl to the oldest guests in their 70′s. I have had phone calls and emails from my friends telling me that they have never had so much fun on the dance floor.

I hope you will be hearing from some friends who got your card because they want to talk with you about playing at one of their fund raisers in Cashiers, North Carolina.

Thank you for adding so much to the evening. It was amazing.

Jim,
Lauren and I would like to thank you and your band for an amazing performance and helping to make our reception so much fun for everyone, young and old alike. You were so gracious and accommodating in letting my sister Gayle sing with your band. You did a great job at keeping everyone entertained and the quality was top notch. I would recommend your band to anyone, you were the perfect choice for our reception. Thanks again for everything!
Sincerely,

Dear Jim:
Wow! You and your band, Blue Sky, were so much more than I ever imagined! You managed to make Kate & Brian’s wedding reception magical. I can’t believe anyone would want Dj after hearing your group – in fact, I just gave your card to a lady on my tennis team whose daughter is getting married next May, 2006. Thanks so much Blue Sky Atlanta. Toni & Joe Crowley

Dear Jim:
Just a quick note to tell you once again how much the crowd enjoyed your performance with your band Blue Sky on Friday September 17, 2004. You really hit the nail on the head with your song selections. And if it weren’t for this group’s hip replacements, bum knees, heart problems, etc., the dance floor would have been PACKED.

Almost a month has passed since our wedding and Don & I are still savoring the memories of that day. We want to thank you and “Blue Sky” for providing the perfect music for the occasion – from your piano solo to the dance music and your vocals – it was just what we had envisioned for our celebration. Also, there were many compliments from our guests! We will be happy to recommend you and your company, Blue Sky Atlanta to others!

Dear Jim,
I wanted to write and thank you for making Megan and Seth’s reception such a wonderful time. Jen, I thoroughly enjoyed working with you. You were so accessible and had all the answers for a first time ‘mother of the bride’. Jim, the music was great. You and your band were the height of professionalism. The combination of your band and the DJ was exactly what Megan and Seth were looking for. The UGA ‘tribute’ was such fun. I know all the alumni got a kick out of it. Once again, thank you for making Megan’s special day all the more memorable. And since I have two more daughters, we will be calling you again!!
Sincerely, Marilyn and Donnie Massey

Dear Jim:
You and your band were perfect for our wedding reception at Studio Two. Remember my only requirement, that you keep people dancing? Well, I think some of our guests wore out the soles of their shoes. You helped us put on the best wedding ever! We have friends getting married in October in Norcross. They’ve hired a DJ (ugh), but she is looking for an organ player for the ceremony. I’ve given her your name and web page. I hope you can help her out.
Best wishes,

Dear Mr Tiernan:
We just wanted to extend out appreciation for your participation in this year’s California Hardware event at the Carter Center on February 9, 2002 in Atlanta. Your total professionalism and cooperation form the set list, to your early arrival and having to switch the location of the setup of your band prior to to the reception’s start was very helpful. Not to mention your music, which was top notch.
Again, we thank you, and not only will we recommend you but hope that an opportunity may arise in the future for us to work together again. Respectfuly Yours, Earl Bender – Avenel Associates – Washington, D.C.

Dear Jim: I want to thank you and your great band, Blue Sky. In the seven years Tom Egan and I have been involved with this event, we think your band was the best and most versatile we’ve ever had. When you find a great band you don’t want to let them go! We will pass your name along to the many attendees who asked about how to reach you. Thanks for throwing in that Irish music!

“We hired Jim and his band, Blue Sky, for the first function I was involved in at ACRI, a holiday party for 250 doctors on December 5, 2001 at the Egyptian Ballroom, and I have to say that from start to finish they were a great help. The music was exactly what we needed and they even learned a few songs I asked them to play for my wife and I. Since the event I have been in contact with Jim who has been in the music business for over 20 years in Atlanta, to help up with other fundraisers. I give Blue Sky, Jim Tiernan and Blue Sky Atlanta a BIG thumbs up!”
