November 10, 2018 - The Jimmys - "The Jimmys are one hard act to follow at a blues festival. They are truly a wall of rhythm and blues sound. They've got it all: songs, musicianship and showmanship. Great guys. Great sounds."  The Jimmys have mined pure R&B gold with "Hot Dish". From the opening hit of the Ray Charles influenced "Lose That Woman" to the sultry swagger of "Freight Train" , "Hot Dish" is a winner from top to bottom. Try to not dance when listening to "Funk Schway". It simply can't be done! And the Jimmys are a great live act as well. Look for them on tour soon as they hit the road to support this album of great music. "Hot Dish" indeed!  -Tinsley Ellis, Recording Artist.  8:00pm show at Le Musique Room in St. Michael.  For tickets go to www.goexit205.com  or call the Box office at 612 314 9199
