Hey there guys, DJ Dizzy here & this is my interview with a band called Jim's The Man Enjoy!
How'd you get started in music?
I got my first guitar whan I was 13, and started playing in bars when I was 15.
Our lead singer, Grant, was 18, so he could drive at night.
We would go to the club and set up our equipment during the day,
then Grant would drive us all to and from the gig in his Buick.
Who are your inspirations or influences?
The Beatles has to be number one, but the Stones, Creedence, Tom Petty, Elvis, Chuck
Berry, Zeplin, Johnny Winter, Moody Blues, Buddy Holley, Beachboys, Youngbloods,
Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Jerry Garcia, Yardbirds, Doors, Eagles and many others!
What advice would offer aspiring performers?
The only way you will be successful and happy is if you do it for the love of the
music. Money and Fame are rarely obtainable in this business, and even when they are, it is
often an empty reward.
How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?
My band doesn't cater to the top ten. We do pure Classic Rock and Brit Pop so we are
obviously popular with the over 40 crowd, but we have a lot of support from the 20
and 30 year olds, who have never been exposed to a lot of this era of music, but
instantly enjoy it!
Any new gigs or albums in the future
Like most bands, we lost all our shows at the begining of covid. We were able to play
a show last month, but currently we have 2 members recovering from the virus.
We are hoping that 2021 will be a good year for everyone in music!
