You don't have to be in the NHL or Major League Baseball to get a big-league experience for your team's games!

Drawing on his vast skill set, James provides the perfect 'window dressing' to elevate your game or tournament into a true event. Here's what you get:

pro-quality PA announcing
• James' stirring renditions of the American and Canadian national anthems
live organ music to project a classic atmosphere

... all at an affordable price. And, as a certified USA Hockey official, he can also handle scorekeeping and timekeeping duties seamlessly and efficiently if required.

James was the primary in-arena announcer (and organist!) for the 2018 USA Hockey Tier 1 Youth National Championship, the 2020 Atlantic Youth Hockey League Playoffs, and the 2020 Federation Cup (Collegiate Hockey Federation), all held at Ice Line in West Chester, Pa.; as well as the 2019 College Hockey Mid-America Playoffs in Pittsburgh. He also served in the same capacity for select games for the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers of the Eastern Hockey League in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.

To secure James for your upcoming game, showcase or tournament, contact him.


Here's what people around the game have to say about the unique "game day experience" James offers:

"There is no better anthem singer in college hockey than James. You get goosebumps during the national anthem on the ice at Fred Rust Arena for a University of Delaware game. A combination of the pregame anthem and classic in-game hockey organ music make for a great experience when James is working."

— John Casey, ACHA/USA Hockey on-ice official

“When I skate onto the ice and see James in the scorer's box, I know I’m in for a great game. Not only does he provide the best in-game entertainment, but his knowledge of the game is extremely beneficial to the referees. He is a certified on-ice official as well, so having someone in the scorer's box who knows all of the rules, penalty signals and time clock scenarios takes a great chunk of responsibility off of the referees, and allows us to keep focused on the play. He for sure makes our lives a lot easier and the game much more fun!"

— Eric Michaels, NAHL on-ice official
