Event Info

Music has always been a major part of Hippy Jim’s life. In middle and high school he played saxophone in the school band. As a teenager and young adult he sang in youth and adult choirs, and enjoyed singing at the occasional garage jam sessions. In the Early 80’s Jim was an on-air personality for a local top 40 radio station. Following his military career he started a part time DJ and karaoke business. As a result of DJ gigs, Jim occasionally sat in with various bands at venues where he worked and served a stint as the front man for a house band when they were between singers. In his 30s he toyed around with the guitar for a brief time. After years of trying to find the right career field, Jim realized that music was his true passion. With major encouragement from friends and family he picked up the guitar and began working on music in earnest. Open mic and jam sessions became major part of Jim’s weekly schedule. With the help of many local musicians he honed his craft and built up a large enough repertoire to begin booking gigs. In 2015 Jim left his job as a professional technical trainer to pursue music full time.
