John March has been working for eNaropa and the Authentic Leadership program, in the roles of Media consultant and Production and Post Production services. He has been consulting for us on content development as well as video editing, sound mixing and producing media for our programs. He has many good ideas around cost effective workflow solutions and technology acquisition and development.
My job is to create engaging online curriculum in various mediums, and John was supportive and helpful in selecting great moments in the video and audio materials we were working with.
John is an extremely focused and creative problem solver. He is also a team player, committed to achieving the best possible outcome for the project. He is efficient and hard working, and consistently delivered his work in a timely manner.
We are extremely pleased with the work John has done for us, and plan to utilize his services again in the future as needs and projects arise. If you are looking for someone who can solve a wide range of technical and creative problems in the arena of Media Production, look no further.
“Just want to thank you again, in writing, for the beautiful video and for your moral support, in general, of BCAA. It’s been a pleasure working with you thus far and we’re looking forward to continuing the relationship.”
I met John March 4 years ago when he began playing a weekly residency at my venue Caffe Sole, here in South Boulder. He played with the Boulder Blues Quartet every Wednesday for almost 18 months. He also produced a wonderful 3 hour Live broadcast for KGNU’s 30th anniversary Blues Broadcast. In the time I have known John we have become good friends and worked on several projects together. He has consulted for me regarding sound and acoustics for my venue, and equipment acquisition for sound and lighting.
Recently John produced a video for me that is an excellent promotional tool for marketing and Brand awareness for Caffe Sole. I love the video and John did great work telling the story of who we are and what we do. John is a thoroughly excellent and consummate professional, and I recommend him with the highest possible praise. He is thorough, punctual and always working towards the best possible and most creative solutions. If you need to produce a video or need some help with sound or music, John is the guy to see!

“John is an extremely talented and experienced mixer who has given guest lectures to my class at CU Denver. He would be an excellent addition to any faculty.”
I was lucky to meet John March in August of 2016 at the Boulder Fringe Festival. Soon after, he became a consultant for my company, ALOC Media. He has helped to facilitate a long overdue change in my drive to become a knowledgable videographer, editor and business owner. He taught me the importance of having a high level of technical skill, and to push the limits of my craftsmanship. Now I think of him as a teacher and mentor. John’s contributions as a producer, mixer and sound designer have drastically improved the level of professionalism inherent in our video production process. I highly recommend John March to anyone in need of A/V services or consultation. I look forward to working with him on projects that benefit the Boulder community for years to come.
Joe Richey – Producer for Alternative Radio National syndicated radio Programming
In spite of Boulder’s highly intelligent, skilled workforce, there are few audio and video producers here who possess the wealth of experience, from decades in the music industry, from Los Angeles to New York, than John March. Anyone needing an audio or video producer can rely on his clear communication, and completing work in a timely and excellent manner. John will improve any and all projects that come to his desk. Here at Alternative Radio we have called upon John on a number of occasions, to help with some forensic sound editing and repairing poorly recorded material. His knowledge of cutting edge sound editing tools surpasses anyone else’s in our outfit. He has helped countless performers. performance venues and events. I highly recommend John to artists and entrepreneurs who want to improve their project’s production value, to contact John.
Suzanne Luna – Emmy award winning field director at The Ellen DeGeneres Show
John March composed original music and did all the post production in sound and music for an extensive video project of mine. He was not only a pleasure to work with but meticulous in both crafts of creating tracks AND fixing some of the mistakes that were made during our shoot. 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. ~Suzanne Luna (producer/director)
John is an extremely talented and qualified candidate with a wide ranging expertise. He would be an asset to any company.
Jeff Paris – Session musician and sideman with Keb Mo, Dave Stewart, Ringo Starr and many more…
I’ve worked with John March off and on over the last 20 years and his versatility and drive have always impressed me.
He’s a skilled guitarist, audio engineer, audio technician, music project director, and is constantly expanding his skill set. He’s a total team player and problem solver.
John always executes his work at the highest level.
John brings an incredible presence that is intelligently compassionate. In the sessions he led I found myself pleasantly relaxed into the insight and wisdom he brought to each participant. When he introduced a perspective or principle it was not dogmatic, it was inspiring, speaking to what was laid before him and clearly embodying his path and also utilizing his tools in service rather than just ‘teaching.’ I greatly look forward to working with him again. I highly recommend him as a true ‘spiritual mentor or skillful friend.
“Working with John has been instrumental and incredibly helpful in launching my business’s video projects. He has helped me in nearly every facet of video production, start to finish: content and script development, lighting and shot design, finding my voice and video persona, and post-production audio and video editing. Looking back, I can see how attempting to do this on my own, without John’s help, would have taken dramatically more time to learn through numerous mistakes and would have produced a dramatically inferior product. John is deeply experienced and skilled in this subject matter, and is fast, efficient, and enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend John and his services.”

I’ve known John March for more than 12 years. I’ve had the pleasure of playing with him many times, specifically on a tour of Japan we did with the great songstress Valerie Carter. He not only is a virtuoso guitarist but a highly accomplished recording engineer and audio editor- a virtual ‘triple threat.’ I look forward to any chance I have to make music with John… Mike Visceglia- bassist

John opened up my “minds door” when we were working together. He is both gentle and precise, giving both the room to creatively explore, and the discipline to focus and give your best. He is the kind of collaborator and musician you work with and never forget.
In the 12 years I have known and worked with John, he has always been one of the hardest working, ethical, intuitive self-starters I’ve ever known. He is highly intelligent, a born leader, an excellent problem solver, extremely creative and fun to work with. He has an abnormally broad skill-set (does many things extremely well) and is a valuable member of any team or project. Five Stars!!!

When somebody signed me up to be the Chair of the Entertainment Committee for a big-time charity event I was a bit nervous that I could pull it off. Then one of our members suggested I call John March. I did so and trusted him to put a band together within budget and theme appropriate. Simply put it was the best decision I could have made. The band John put together was world class and we get rave reviews. Since then, I have volunteered to be the Entertainment Committee chair because all I have to do is call John and the entertainment is set. We have had a New Orleans, Cuban, and Casablanca themed events and each time John exceeded our expectations with the quality of the entertainment. Do yourself a favor and call John, it is the only call you will need to make.

I have had the pleasure of playing in a band with John March on several occasions over the past decade. He always brings his best talents to the stage, great attitude, and does everything with a smile! He is a team-oriented person possessing a global perspective on the process of creativity, and has a strong understanding of the holistic nature of being a “complete” artist. In addition to his musical talents, John is very knowledgeable in production and on the technological front. Personally, he is a warmhearted, caring individual with an empathetic character, able to put himself in other people’s shoes, and focuses on the positive aspects of every situation.
John March wrote several articles for Músico Pro while I was Editor in Chief. His unabashed critical insights into the music business were invaluable to our readership and I highly recommend him to any editor. He was always on time and had endless ideas for articles that went above and beyond my expectations.
John is one of the greatest guitarists I’ve ever heard or performed with. He captivates the audience with his relaxed but powerful presentation of all types of music. Melt you with a ballad, or kick you over with amazing speed and intricacy. He’s a great band leader, and is a creator of projects and ideas that help to create the music scene. He’s also a great guy and has my highest recommendation!
John is a tinderbox of creativity and technical skills. He has a great ear, a creative mind and is willing to speak his mind. He brings inspiration and energy to every project and is also a pleasure to work with. He’s a good fellow too.
John March is an incredibly talented individual! Not many people I know that can do several things well but John is one of them. An amazing guitarist that has played on numerous sessions, he also happens to be a wizard at Protools. Which is why he worked so many years at one of the best studios on the planet, Westlake Audio in LA. Home of so many hits and artists that you had to be better than anyone else or at least keep up snuff. So whether you need guitar or an excellent engineer there is no one better….
John brings a calm to all our meetings. He is able to get the best out of anyone he meets and is uncannily good at putting everyone at their ease. Into this setting his talent as a guitar player, an entertainer, and a music professional has never failed. Know simply that you are in very good hands.
