Entertaining since 1975
Imagine beautiful big-band favorites, professionally orchestrated and punctuated by happy sing-a-longs. Next, add mind-boggling magic tricks with challenging memories from old radio broadcasts, T.V. shows and commercials. Now, you can appreciate a fast-paced show by Jim Edwards.
Jim is a
multi-faceted, multi-talented entertainer with a unique style. He combines
instrumental prowess on trombone, banjo and other instruments with clever vocal lyrics. His repertoire of clever tricks, stories and humor is
mixed with novelty tunes like the hilariously choreographed song “M-O-T-H-E-R."
Your group will be talking about him for months, as he puts smiles on faces and songs in the hearts of audiences of all ages. His entertaining approach is an indication of someone who genuinely loves people of all ages.
A performer for over 30 years, Jim has toured nationally, entertained in nightclubs and performed for industrial shows. A sound system expert, he travels with his own sophisticated audio system, only requiring a stage area with a 110-volt grounded electrical connection.
1- Big Band Artistry
Remember the songs of Jerome Kern, Sammy Kahn and Cole Porter, sung by Rosemary, Tony, Bing, Frank and the Mills Brothers? A silky smooth trombonist reminiscent of the great musicians of the big bands, Jim transports audiences to when music was beautiful, lyrics were intelligent and musicians were true artists. Because he can play over 20 instruments, you'll never know what’s coming next.
On his vintage 1919 Vega Banjo, Jim leads sing-a-longs on 5 foot 2; If you knew Suzie; Bye, Bye Blackbird; and countless other songs you’ve heard on your Mother’s knee or in some other “joint.” With a rich history of playing in Chicago’s “Rush Street” Banjo Band Nightclubs, he sprinkles in comical songs and refreshing little-known verses from old “chestnuts.”
