Your visit today (November 15, 2018) at Beth Yeshurun for the people of The Gathering was terrific.

You brought back many nostalgic memories, when the lyrics were meaningful, and the tunes were appreciated by one and all.

You are a super musician, and we all enjoyed your presentation.

Come again!

Just wanted to let you know how much we look forward to hearing you play and sing for us. I was so sorry I missed you the last time you were here but I was visiting family - so you didn’t get to hear me call out “Phillies!” [vs. “Astros”] at the appropriate time in Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

I thank the Lord for your recovery [from heart surgery] and pray you will be able to perform for many years. You are a blessing to all of us at Eagle’s Trace.

Hi Jim!

 

I would like to thank  you for helping me take our Birthday Party/Anniversary Party to the next level.  You really helped me make this event special for the residents, and it is something we really look forward to every month! I know this because the room is ALWAYS FULL!!

I was just thinking about how it used to be when I first started working here in the community, we were lucky to have 5 or even 10 people attend the party, and I was just embarrassed sometimes when we have family members come over and the entertainers just didn’t do much for the residents. Ever since you started playing for us, our residents just see the passion and love that you have for music and entertainment.  And because of you, our Birthday Parties are something our residents and I are proud of!

Jim,

 

Thank you so much for your FANTASTIC show yesterday. I heard so many positive comments afterwards; it was truly heartwarming to see many of our guests singing along with you. We all loved your enthusiasm, singing, and playing. It really showed that you were having a good time, and in turn, so did everyone else!

Thanks again,
Kathleen Ditter

Dear Mr. Connors:

Thank you for the outstanding recital you presented at HBU on Friday. You were a big hit among the students, faculty, staff and guests that attended. My students continue to talk about your program.

You are truly a gifted musician! Your improvisation on “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” with a dozen or more classical tunes interwoven into the fabric of the music was delightful. The students were particularly impressed with your ability to improvise and change registrations so smoothly. Your medley of tunes from “The Sound of Music” was equally impressive. Thanks for adding the Bach Prelude.

Perhaps the best gift of the afternoon was your performance of ”I’ll be Loving You, Always” for Dr. Morris. Offering this piece on the spot without time to rehearse is a testament to your talent.

I was so pleased that you demonstrated the versatility of our instrument. You made many “friends” for the organ on Friday! Thank you for this tremendous gift!

Sincerely,

Jim,

Thank you so much for the wonderful time today at the Cypress-Woodlands Junior Forum “Friends Luncheon”. My neighbors and I look forward to attending this function for senior citizens six times a year. We always enjoy the bingo, food and entertainment.

This afternoon we all agreed that having the opportunity to hear you was the best time we have ever had at Forum Friends.

When I was growing up (with the dinosaurs), I spent many hours at a huge roller skating rink in my hometown of a Memphis, TN. All of the music was provided by a lady who played a beautiful Wurlitzer as we went round and round. She had a big window just a few feet from the rails and we would wave at her and clap for her. I never even knew her name, but she was influential in my parents buying me a Hammond for my 12th birthday.

So, today, while you played, I was just a kid again, reliving all those hours going round and round with the big mirror balls spinning and that beautiful organ music sailing right along with me.

Thanks for the great music and……thanks for the memories.

Since Jim Connors started playing the piano every Tuesday and Friday at The Forum, the audience has doubled!

He not only can play anything we request, no matter what it is – but he also knows all the words, and will tell us – so those of us who want to sing along – can!!

We’re an older audience –  so sometimes we are not easy to please – but everyone here thinks he is wonderful!
