Award winning band The Jimmys perform on Saturday, Mar. 28 at Hooligans Neighborhood Pub, 1400 East Madison Ave., Mankato (Madison East Center). The group is touring in support of their newest CD, ‘Gotta Have It’. The concert kicks off at 7:00 pm. with the Kit Kildahl Group.

The concert event is co-sponsored by KMSU-The Maverick and the Minnesota State Mankato Performance Series with assistance from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

The Jimmys are a festival and fan favorite in the upper Midwest and Canada. The MAMA (Madison Area Music Awards) and WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Awards) have recognized and honored The Jimmys with 19 MAMA and WAMI awards including Blues Artist of the year, Blues Song of the Year, Bassist of the Year, Brass Player of the Year, and Keyboardist of the Year.

Award winning blues recording artist Marcia Ball says, “Wow! I love these guys!  They are funky and rambunctious, and I was dancing from the first note.  Soul music for the 21st Century.”

The all-star rhythm section combines blues icon Perry Weber on guitar (Hubert Sumlin Band), rock and roll drumming legend Chris Sandoval and the most charismatic and solid bass player in Johnny Wartenweiler. Added to the mix are the Amateur Horn Stars - Pete Ross, Saxophone; Mike Boman, trumpet; and Joe Goltz, Trombone. The horn section combines over 40 years' experience touring the world with Clyde Stubblefield, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Youngblood Brass Band, B.B. King and his All Stars, and many others.
