Listen Up: One of Summer Festival Season’s Top Ten Acts
"I’d never heard of Madison, WI’s The Jimmys before I saw them at Bluesfest. Led by Jimmy Voegeli on keyboards and vocals, they upstaged Dave Mason and blew the crowd away with their swing blues (Voegeli also got up to jam with Tinsley Ellis). Watch out for the Jimmys, a band on the move" - Arnold Goodman, Elmore Magazine.
The Jimmys have been ripping up stages with their blend of blues, soul, funk and R&B for nearly 10 years. Award-winning keyboardist/singer/songwriter Jimmy Voegeli has put together an all-star lineup: Perry Weber, veteran blues guitarist/singer/songwriter; Chris Sandoval, longtime drummer with Tommy Castro; John Wartenweiler with his powerful bass lines and deep groove; the Amateur Horn Stars - Pete Ross, Saxophone; Mike Boman, trumpet; and Kevan Feyzi, Trombone - combine 40+ years' experience touring the world with Clyde Stubblefield, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Youngblood Brass Band, B.B. King and his All Stars, and many others.
With multiple awards and a growing legion of fans you gotta get yourself to their next show to find out what everyone's hollerin' about.
