Introduction: “A Voice Like Buttah”. This was what one of my musical peers said of me recently. Classic rock, soul, and a little country and blues- this is what I’m known for. I am available for solo gigs as well as full band gigs and anything in between based on your preferences and budget. I also use a looper pedal for solo gigs which allows me to sound like I have one or two more musicians playing with me on certain songs. I recently performed on stage in a band with members of Billy Joel‘s band, John Mellencamp‘s band, Little Steven Van Zandt’s band, and Southside Johnny’s band. Man, that was a blast! I’d love to make your event something to remember. I usually arrive at least 1 hour before showtime and I am always available to discuss last minute changes if necessary. I have my own professional sound system that can fill most rooms comfortably. My song list draws from classic rock/blues such as the Beatles, Eagles, Clapton, Dylan, James Taylor, The Band, Neil Young, U2, Elton John, CSNY, Bee Gees, Taj Mahal, the Rolling Stones, Otis Redding, Motown, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, Little Feat, Allman Brothers, , the Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Chris Stapleton,, and much much more. I’ll play in your backyard, living room, banquet room, or any venue that works for your event. I also donate 5% of all money to charity earned from private events.?Yep, it's gonna be a party.

Jim and Mike recently performed at our Lodge's Family Picnic. The guests were thoroughly entertained with their musical stylings during the afternoon. They did a fantastic job playing in less than ideal weather conditions (as rain invaded the picnic) and all with a smile on their face. Highly recommend them.

Jim did a fantastic job at our backyard party. Everyone loved his selection of songs along with the way he played. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

No matter what the occasion, Jim brings an incredible, tailored, engaging and fun filled aura wherever he goes! Every time that I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Jim live, He is nothing short of professional, talented, varied and dedicated. Could not recommend him enough for any event.
