* The Dawdlers are playing Silo's in Napa for the first time on Thursday, 12/28, and are really looking forward to bringing the holiday cheer to Napa (Tom'll have it in his trunk)! We want to make a splash with this one, so PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO, and if you haven't seen us in awhile, or ever, or indoors (we look even younger indoors), please come to this one, and ask your friends, neighbors, city council, bowling league, and knitting circle to come as well, as we'd like to get invited back, and consolidate Napa as another Near North Bay stronghold for the band (Eric Wood will be with us on the "skins" again that night - see below - and again there within 48 hours with Forejour!). We hope to see a mess of you there! P.S. We'll also be doing a brief RADIO SPOT promotion of the gig on Napa's KVYN next Friday, 12/22, at around 8:30 AM (a GREAT time to sing!), and the live feed that day can be heard HERE: http://www.993thevine.com/ Read more
Not to be confused with the far more affluent C&W songwriter of the same name, Jim is a singer and songwriter of the melodic British pop school invented by The Beatles. Inspired first by them, and then again by tuneful Brits and Commonwealthers of the following generation like Squeeze (Glenn Tilbrook), Crowded House/Split Enz (Neil Finn), Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, The Police/Sting, and lately groups like Keane and Coldplay, Jim adds a seldom heard American voice to the mix of what he feels has by now become its own form of traditional music.
About himself, Jim had this to say, "Sing pretty well, think not quite as well, but have nice grammar which often conceals my general befuddlement."
