John is an extremely accomplished musician, engineer and producer and I’ve always felt comfortable communicating with him about every aspect of the recording process.

His work elevated my project to a MUCH higher level and I couldn’t recommend him enough, an absolutely talented musician and audio professional. You need someone like him on your project.”

Over the last two years I was privileged to work once again with John on one of his CD releases, as well as a Jazz CD he produced. John’s work is creative, all-encompassing and impeccable in every manner. He has created world class resources and skillsets for creating remote guitar parts, ProTools session work/mixing and sound design, and basically anything a client may need. If you are looking for a great Producer, Mixer or Guitarist, John is your go to guy. Highly recommended.”

Director, Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival

“John March helped me pull off an otherwise impossible task of producing a guitar show and music festival.  When we first started talking to JM Media Services about our idea for the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival, it was clear that John shared my passion for making this happen in Colorado, and his participation was going to be critical to our future success. He told me “don’t worry, we’re going to make this happen, this has to happen.” Along with the professional service he provided, John personally added invaluable advice and consultation derived from his extensive background in media and production, a service I could never have gotten from anyone else.  I consider John a critical partner to keeping the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival going in Colorado, as well as helping to keep Henriksen Amplifiers a locally growing and thriving enterprise. “

Christian Teele – Drummer, session musician, E-Town –
“It is with great pleasure that I sit down to sing the praises of John March. John and his team came to me, a musician in need of video work for promotions, but not in a position to afford it. He told me he wanted to help me and other artists/musicians in the area to be able to promote ourselves with our own custom produced video documentaries. I was completely taken aback. Rarely if ever have I had someone take such an interest in what I do, and to be so generous with their time. John and his team came to my house, helped me get my studio set up for good video shots and then filmed me playing music and answering questions. He then took all of that and edited it together into an amazing video that I can now use for years to come to help promote my art. One thing that stands out, is that John, knowing that my dad was a musician and had recently passed away, made a point of including pictures and information about my dad, so that the video is not only about me but also about my father and his legacy and how he passed on his love of music to me. I truly cherish the video and am so thankful for all that John did for me. He is a true asset to our community and I highly recommend him whenever I have the chance.”
