Short Bio

Jimjam is a fun-loving and versatile multi-instrumental vocal harmony group ranging from a jazzy-folky blues style to full on Rock and Roll. Over the last 10 years Jimjam has wooed audiences of all sizes at major corporate events to house parties. They use their vast repertoire of songs from 60s to present day, plus their own compositions, to put together the right mix for each occasion.

The band’s first album ‘Child of the Universe’ has been very well received and they are now preparing to record an album of all originals later in 2019. Jim is also an international touring artist and has just returned from touring UK and USA with his latest and third solo album.

Lineup – Jimjam perform as a Trio and add drums on larger events

Jim McGuire – vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin and violin.

Suzanne Brown – vocals, cello, bass, and piano.

Steve Beckwith – vocals, harmonica, electric and classical guitars

Duncan Farrow – Drums

Jim started off as lead guitarist and vocalist with some of Scotland’s top rock bands and went on to train and perform in a range of music and vocal styles including jazz, blues and opera. Suzanne and Steve are both classically trained musicians and Duncan on drums is also a mathematics professor, so he knows how to count.

Gear – The band has three sets of PA for venues of all sizes with remote sound control via digital mixers. They have their own sound technician where required.

Reviews

“This band is so popular we have had them at every festival since we started. These guys come in a variety of guises and tonight, in full-on rock and roll mode, please welcome Jimjam.”

– Steve Mitcham Director,
Gidgestock Music Festival. 13/10/18

“Last night Jimjam presented one of the finest concerts it has ever been my pleasure to attend. They sing in a comfort zone which appears effortless and which got their audience on side from the first song. There was interaction and repartee which is the very essence of live performance and lifts them to another level.”
