Jim Nelson grew up in south Louisiana and cut his teeth listening and playing songs from AM radio. He played a lot of "Swamp Pop" – everything from The Grass Roots to John Fred and the Playboys. His playing is also heavily influenced by the New Orleans “piano professors” and he plants his feet firmly in both pop and blues. Jim’s other big influence is Ray Charles and he regularly includes a song or two from Ray in his shows. Jim will be joined on stage by two friends who are also stand out talents on their own, Lee Venters on Drums and Matt Pirruccello on bass.
