He has performed for years and has released 3 CDs on his own label. James is a New York native and lives in Center Moriches, N.Y. and enjoys the intimacy of library settings. ...His artistry goes beyond the songs, having seen James perform many times, I am beginning to appreciate how each song is a loving relationship for him, like a child, he never seems to tire of bringing each one to life for the audience.

Music
Music is the background of our lives. It colors our world and helps to unite us as people. It also reminds us where we've been and how we've overcome during troubled times and how we've thrived in good times. mondoRAJ performs songs from several decades. Including songs influenced by our troops being overseas. How these songs attempted to give us hope for a return to normalcy. While other songs existed just to bring us joy. We play a selection Holiday songs performed in a jazzy style. Songs may include White Christmas, I'll be Home for Christmas, Deck the Halls... and many more! We can add more children oriented songs based on the number of children in the audience. But we also remember than anyone can be a child at heart.
