The Jimmys have been tearing up stages with their blend of blues, soul, funk and R&B for nearly 10 years. Award-winning keyboardist / singer / songwriter Jimmy Voegeli has assembled an all-star lineup: Perry Weber, veteran guitarist / singer / songwriter with an authentic blues sound; Mauro Magellan, of the Georgia Satellites, drives the band with some mighty drumming; John Wartenweiler ties it together with thumping bass lines and a deep groove. The Amateur Horn Stars – Pete Ross, Saxophone, Darren Sterud, trombone, and Mike Boman, trumpet – combine 50+ years’ experience touring the world, playing with Clyde Stubblefield, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Davina and the Vagabonds, Youngblood Brass Band, B.B. King and his All Stars, and many others.
Come by any time between 6 & 8 PM. Grab a beer and some eats while you enjoy the best music Madison has to offer! $3 drink specials every night.
