Jim Bruno played both of my venues many times during my tenure, always accompanied by his loyal fanbase while consistently winning over new audience members. After opening for ex-Eagle Timothy B Schmit, an industry insider told me " I never arrive in time for the opener, but after this set...I'm NEVER missing another.” - Dennis Juarez

— Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Operations Manager Slims, Great American Music Hall (retired)

Jim's songs display so much craft, heart, insight, charm, and melodic appeal. Nothing cluttered or gimmicky or pretentious ... just the key ingredients of appealing tunes with memorable lyrics. He performs his material with earnest directness that is disarming, while his between-song stories and intros are engaging and thoroughly entertaining.” - Miles Hurwitz

— Former BAM (The California Music Magazine) Associate Publisher, band manager/producer.

"Jim Bruno is a positive force, and his songs are filled with vitality and intellect. He consistently engages and delights our Lost Church audiences. A skilled songwriter and artist, Jim is a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We schedule him on our calendar whenever we can!"” - Michele Kappel

— Operations Director, The Lost Church, Live Performance Space, San Francisco

"When Jim plays at our house concerts they are always some of our best attended and most fun. The audience knows that they're going to get a combination of Jim's thoughtful songs along with some great cover tunes that are performed with gusto. We always look forward to having Jim play for us" ” - Valerie Birk

— Route One House Concerts, Flossmoor, IL

"Over the many years of offering house concerts, I am honored that Jim Bruno has performed several times with each time being a wonderful experience. He is one of the best attended of all I have booked. With his beautifully written songs and heart felt performances, audiences rave about him long after it over. Jim's down to earth and compassionate personality shines through, along with his witty stories that brings smiles to all. I highly recommend attending if you see Jim Bruno on the the bill. You will be happy you did!!"” - Juliette MacDonald
