What they say about me...

The charts I bought from you were read/played (with no rehearsal time) with my band at a gig on Saturday. They worked like a charm. Thanks!!

Hi, Dave. I just ran through your charts. They really are impressive.

Thank you Dave, I'll run this by the ensemble Sunday, if it works, I'll come right home and pay pal you. This is great service. Thanks!

Thanks Dave! You are a savior.

Yeah those will work perfect. I just made the payment, and WOW...that was a REALLY FAST turn-around....just like you said it would be.

Just a note of thanks for your extraordinary work! The charts are great and we are so psyched to play them! I have sent payment by Paypal, so please let me know if for some reason you don't receive it. I will certainly pass your name and recommendation along in NYC....great work!
All the best, Ian

Overall, wanted to complement you on your beautifully work. My show this summer will be fantastic because of these charts. Thanks again.

I paid the fee out right, really appreciate you sending these out so soon. I checked out your sample of Cut The Cake and it was spot on! Thank You, I'll be back

The charts worked perfectly. Just like the record. Thanks for your quick turnaround.

P.S. One of my bands played your charts for Late in the Evening. Flawless craftmanship!

Thanks for helping get the chart so quickly, that was really nice of you, and I sincerely appreciate it. I just sent you $10 by paypal, my band liked the chart, I hope I can purchase some more of your arrangements soon!
Thanks Aaron

Dave, the charts you did for me were GREAT! They were spot-on accurate, and very well written - as well as any I have ever purchased. And the turn around time was absolutely incredibly. I don't believe anyone could have produced these special arrangements faster. Your work is greatly appreciated and I can assure you that I will use your services again!

This is perfect!! I'll send in payment as soon as I get home! I'll be using you for more charts.

Hi Dave
Just a quick note to say how brilliant your charts were. The band just topped and tailed both tracks in the soundcheck so the first time I heard the whole song all the way through was on the gig. Wow! is all I can say. As I dont read charts I bombarded you with questions and you were extremely patient and helpful and the guys in the band thought the charts were great! Both tracks sounded amazing!
Will DEFINATELY be getting more from you in the future.

Dave! Works great! I just paid you!
I hope to work with you a lot in the future, that was fast, the key is right, and the chart is clean.
Thank You!

Hi Dave,
I've wanted to email you for a long time now and thank you for the wonderful arrangements you did for a 9 piece band (used on the cruise lines), but until you popped up on Jim Martin's website I had no idea how to contact you.
Back in 1999, I was working in Branson on the Showboat Branson Belle with a 6 piece combo playing big-band style arrangements during the dinner set.
Our employer, Herchend Family Entertainment (you might have seen them featured recently on "undercover boss") wanted us to perform a big-band segment as part of Silver Dollar City's American Music festival that spring. Our MD knew of your stuff from working cruise ships and he arranged to have SDC purchase your entire catalogue of arrangements from there. We hired 3 horn players from another show and performed 3 hour long sets for 3 weeks during the festival.
It was a very fun time.
Your writing is inspiring. Being an aspiring arranger myself, I've studied your music to try and understand how you got such a full sound out of 9 pieces. Your use of the trombone to fill out sax soli sections is genius.
We recorded most of the performances and the best tracks became our 2nd CD to sell on the boat. Our Trumpet player gave it the perfect title for our audience - "Tribute to the War Years"
It sold very well for the next 6 years, only stopping because the Showboat's management curtailed it.

I just thought you'd like to know what an enjoyable experience it was performing your arrangements. It became for us a very nice "moment in time."
Best Regards,

Hi Dave
Wow thank you so much, thats a superb service you have going there. I may well be back for more now i have seen what you have. Great stuff. Thank you

Have a great week mate,

Thank you. MAN have you saved me a ton of time. Great website!

Hi there, I bought a bunch of these from you a while back and thought they were really good. Thanks for your great transcriptions; let me know where to paypal to.

We gave them a test drive last night for a gig 10 days from now. All of them work well and sound cool with your harmonies!!

Re: Son of a Preacher Man
Rehearsals went really well. Perfect charts make it so much easier.

Thanks. Excellent. Is there somewhere on Facebook or elsewhere where I can help promote you. These are perfect.
