January 26, 2019 at 7:00 pm. The Jimmys are a powerhouse, seven piece band influenced by raw Chicago Blues to second line New Orleans funk. With touring experience throughout the U.S. and Europe, The Jimmys have amassed international acclaim. Members of this band have garnered Wisconsin’s top honors
Over the past six years the Jimmys have solidified their brand of Blues and R&B across the Midwest, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean. Led by award winning keyboardist/organist Jimmy Voegeli, the band has been named a “festival favorite” in numerous reviews and magazines. Alongside Voegeli is an all-star rhythm section of Mauro Magellas (Georgia Satellites) on drums, John Wartenweiler (The Crashers) on bass, and the blues veteran Perry Weber (Hubert Sumlin) on guitar. Their unique sound is capped off with Wisconsin’s best horn section featuring Darren Sterud (Davina and the Vagabonds/Mama Digdown’s Brass Band) on trombone, Pete Ross (Glenn Miller Orchestra/Aaron Williams) on saxophone, and Mike Boman (Youngblood Brass Band) on trumpet. These three honed their skills over the years playing with the original Funky Drummer himself, Clyde Stubblefield. The Jimmys continue to climb charts and blaze new trails and leave smiling faces and large crowds wherever they go.
