Over the past twelve years, The Jimmys have solidified their brand of Blues and R&B across the Midwest, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean. Led by multiple award-winning keyboardist/organist Jimmy Voegeli, the band has been named a “festival favorite” in numerous reviews and magazines. With Voegeli is an all-star rhythm section featuring:
Chris Sandoval, Drums (Tommy Castro)
John Wartenweiler, Bass (The Crashers)
Blues veteran Perry Weber, guitar (Hurbert Sumlin)
Their unique sound is capped off with Wisconsin’s best horn section. These three honed their skills over the years playing with the original Funky Drummer himself, Clyde Stubblefield.
Pete Ross, Saxophone (Glenn Miller Orchestra)
Mike Boman, Trumpet (Youngblood Brass Band)
Joe Goltz, Trombone (Youngblood Brass Band)
