Jim E Leggs is really two bands in one, a hybrid of sorts. On one hand, they can comfortably lay back in a smooth jazz style and be the perfect addition to a cocktail hour, dinner, or simply for listening. From a jazz standard performed vocally to a tasteful instrumental arrangement of a Beatles hit, Jim E Leggs can cover the Jazz realm in their own graceful manner with integrity.
The other side of Jim E Leggs can turn it up a notch with their pop and R&B material. They'll add vocal harmony to R&B classics and have the chops to spice up familiar tunes with interesting keyboard or 6-string bass solos. They also do a commendable job covering more diverse material in an engaging way.
Price Range: $600 and up
What to Expect
We are the perfect addition to a cocktail party where music needs to be present, but not overbearing. We're able to read an audience's needs and respond with the right song choice for the moment.
From a mambo-infused take on Nat King Cole’s Nature Boy to updated arrangements of The Beatles, Steely Dan and Sting, the music of Jim E Leggs Trio offers an upbeat, fun and varied mix of jazz, funk and classics that will lift your spirits. The music is the thing, with vocals on some tunes and on others their instruments tell the story. Jim E Leggs Trio’s jams on well-known tunes provide unexpected turns along the way.
Jim E Leggs is comprised of alumni from various well-known projects in the Western NY region, including Miche Fambro, Heroes For Ghosts (A Pink Floyd Tribute), Metro Vibe, and The Blue Lights.
- Trio lineup:
Pete Halliday: keyboards, vocals
Frank Minuto: drums, percussion, vocals
Mick Savino: basses, vocals
p.s: And yes, the name of the band comes from the Seinfeld reference about Kramer's girlfriend's restless leg syndrome, otherwise known, according to Kramer, as the "Jimmy Leg".
