At this point in time, Jim has played in over 3,200 gigs, has appeared on 20 albums and has 64 published original compositions most of which have been written on the piano. Although his parents were not musicians they were great lovers of music, so Jim was raised in a household with consistent great music playing in the background. His first musical instrument was the trumpet. After that he played the drums and one fine day he discovered his attraction to the Bass Violin and it has been all bass ever since. Down through the years Jim has been blessed to be surrounded by many fine musicians especially in New York and he got to tour extensively through the United States with many of the big names. Jim was considered to be a trend setter many years ago when he pretty much introduced the fret-less electric bass into the musical mix. Jim moved to South Florida in the early eighties and has played with most of the better players in this region. Jim is happily married to a very sweet lady from Brazil and has five incredible children and three grandchildren. Jim is very proud that his youngest son as well as a grandson both play the bass.

Keeping true to their celebrity counter parts this show has all the fun moves and groove's the original Texas Trio has... along with some local customs thrown in for good measure.

Our version of this classic trio gives you a guitar tone that is thick and swampy, sung in a lowdown growl so husky it could be pulled by a dog sled.
Bass playing that possesses a tone that includes both a fat low end and a pinging high end which negates any potential need for a keyboardist or second guitarist. ZZ Top is all about loud and big, this band rocks out all the hits including.....

“Pincushion” - from the 1994 album Antenna.
“Been Waitin’ For the Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago” and “Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers” - from the incredible Tres Hombres.

"Legs” and Gimme All Your Lovin” from the 1983 album Eliminator: “Tush” and “Heard it on the X” from album number four, Fandango. And much much more.
