Just wanted to publicly thank Jim for his excellent instructional DVDs that helped me become the guitar player I am today. I've never seen Jim live but I keep hoping that when I visit the NYC area in the future, I can catch a show.

On Saturday, June 13th, the ensemble called 'The Weight' had a set for the 40th anniversary Summer Jam (aka Watkins Glen). It was solid...period. Almost made me feel as though I traveled back to the Glen in 1973 and heard the Band's set. Quite enjoyable....thanks!

On October 3, 2012, music stars and friends will join together to celebrate the life and music of Levon Helm at “Love for Levon.” The star-studded benefit concert will feature once-in-a-lifetime collaborations by friends and admirers gathered together to celebrate and honor Levon Helm. Performances will include GRAMMY, CMA, ACM, Americana and Dove Award-winning musicians: Roger Waters, John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne, Eric Church, Gregg Allman, Dierks Bentley, Marc Cohn, Patty Griffin, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, Jorma Kaukonen, The Levon Helm Band, Robert Randolph, Mavis Staples, Joe Walsh, Lucinda Williams and more performers to be announced shortly.
All net proceeds from the concert will help support the lasting legacy of Levon Helm by helping his estate keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue The Midnight Ramble Sessions.
“We are deeply moved that so many musicians and friends of Levon’s are coming together to celebrate his life and his music, and to help us keep his musical spirit and vision alive in the Midnight Rambles,” said Sandy and Amy Helm, Levon’s wife and daughter. “We want to continue to honor his legacy by creating a musical landmark at the Barn, one that inspires and celebrates Americana music and its heritage.”
“We are honored to produce a benefit concert that pays tribute to a musical icon and a beautiful soul, commented show producer Keith Wortman. “Levon’s friends and fans will be coming from all over the world to be part of music history for such a noble and worthy cause to ‘Save The Barn,’ and ensure that the legacy of Levon Helm will live on for generations to come.”

Thank you Jimmy for all the great music
you helped create with Lee & Company.
You've been a true inspiration to fans since joining The Band in the 80's.
Looking forward to your future career and dedication to our brothers.
Peace to you and yours my friend.

I saw Blue Chicken at the Towne Crier,January 2012.
The band "BLUE" me away. I've been on a landslide of
coincidences since that night. Some kind of chemistry.....
"easy to get to know.....hard to get rid of" was an understatement by Randy! .......Now I want to know where you're playing. I NEED to get more BlueChicken...

There is a Tavern in Buffalo N.Y. called The Sportsmens Tavern. Check out the website. We would love to see you there. It would be a great fit for your band. See you soon.
