Introducing my Band .... Jimmy on Guitar!

Hey everyone!


I am very happy to announce that rehearsals are coming to a close and it’s now time to play live shows! But before you come see us live, I would like to introduce you to my band members!

These musicians have been working their asses off this past month with learning the record, bringing their own flavor to the live performance, and putting the show together.

All very exciting stuff; I am going to announce them to you each day this week!

My guitarist and I had a chat this morning - so I would like to introduce you to JIMMY ...

JA: Hey Jimmy! So can you tell my doods why you are the perfect guitarist?
JS: Sure G, I am born and bred in Michigan…but that's probably not a good enough reason haha! I'm 19 years old and have been playing guitar for about 8 years. Since then I've had a lot of experience playing with artists like Melvin Davis, Pat Lewis and members of the Detroit Blues Society.
I'm also the lead guitarist in Detroit-local band, Fifth and Main, we have an Alternative Folk sound. We've opened for bands including The Trews, Green River Ordinance and Better Than Ezra.

JA: So what's your favorite tour bus game?
JS: Hmmm.. trading rap verses haha!

JA: If we could play a show anywhere in the world, what venue would you want to play?
JS: Red Rocks Amphitheater. Hands down.

JA: What are you most looking forward to on tour?
JS: Meeting people with similar and diverse music taste, food, and art interests!

JA: Who are your musical heroes?
JS:  I would have to say John Mayer and Dan Auerbach

Thanks for chatting Jimmy! Can't wait for everyone to meet you!
