Jim Eppolito’s passion for live music performance has kept his company at the forefront of the special events industry for more than 20 years. His vision when opening West Coast Music was to create a “live, music-services” business that would provide its customers with “record-industry” quality and reliability for their parties and special events. Today, West Coast Music is a nationally renowned, full-service production company providing live music for special events, weddings, corporate events, and social occasions.
Jim connects with each discerning client by uniquely translating their music preferences into the most “appropriately cast” music ensemble or band, then organizing and scripting the evening so that the music program significantly enhances the event - interfacing with food service, speakers or other presentations.
WCM is constantly developing exclusive new dance bands, ceremony ensembles, and fine specialty performers focusing on all styles and eras of live music. Additionally, they contract and coordinate today’s premiere celebrity talent like Stevie Wonder, Harry Connick, Gypsy Kings, and Seal.

Clients include the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Emmy’s, Oscars, Golden Globes; Norman Lear, Charlie Sheen, Lamar Odom, the Kardashian family, Ryan Seacrest, Fergie, Oprah, Billy Crystal, Christina Aguilera, Seal, Tom Cruise; Lee Iococca, Steve Wynn, Michael Dell, Al Gore; Chanel, Burberry, Versace, Bulgari.
