Watch our BRAND NEW VIDEO "Write a Hit" - featuring Marcia Ball, please comment and SUBSCRIBE:
...it's a song from our new CD "Gotta Have It"
We're sure you'll love it - we believe it's our best one yet!
And it's getting very good reviews: 4 stars from Downbeat Magazine, they write "...[a] band that warrants notice beyond the Midwest. This new album brims with an honest feeling that stimulates the bandleader's casually forceful vocals and piano work. The other Jimmys, including horn players, respond with exaltation to every smiling suggestion he throws their way. Voegeli's lucky to have Perry Weber in the band; he's an exceptional guitarist who plays with an understated clarity and a sense of stakes."
We are humbled and proud to be winners of Madison Magazine's "Best of Madison 2020" for Local Blues Band and Local Band R&B. and WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Award nominees for Artist of the Year, Horn/Big Band of the Year, Bassist of the Year, and Reeds/Brass of the Year
and we were recently inducted into the MAMA (Madison Area Music Association) Award's Hall of Fame for Blues Band and Keyboardist.
THANKS AGAIN, EVERYONE!!!
