About
Born in the summer of 2006 at Handy Park on Beale Street in Memphis TN, The Jimmy Hudson Band has had an incredible ride entertaining thousands of people in hundreds if not thousands of places. We are not your average band, we are the product of being lifelong Memphis Musicians who hold our musical pride as an homage to those great music pioneers putting blues and country on the map later forming Rock N Roll, Rockabilly, and Soul. In the summer of 2016 The Jimmy Hudson Band re-formed in Central Ohio after playing for many years headlining various venues on Beale Street, The Tunica Casinos, and throughout the Mid-South. Upon reforming Jimmy added an Ohio rhythm section including Drum legend Jim Bridges and he pulled Darrell Jones out of retirement to play bass. Darrell spent 4 years touring with Patti Labelle and many years touring with Billy Preston and has also played with Stevie Wonder and toured with many Broadway Musicals.

After many years as a 3 piece band, we have now added a young female vocalist that will knock the socks right off a rooster and a world class keyboard player bringing our vocal dominance of 4 part harmonies and of course the musician abilities are off the chart! We are still available as a 3 or 4 piece and also as a duet or even a solo performance from Jimmy.

In between National Tours where we have played shows with the likes of Montgomery Gentry, Little Texas, Black Oak Arkansas, Willie Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Barkays, Bobby Blue Bland, Ben Cauley, Al Green, The Doobie Brothers, Travis Tritt, and Brett Michaels, too name a few. Every single time we open for one of these bands or play a show alongside of them we get praise and often invited on stage or they join us. We are that band that will provide exactly the show that is needed for you and most importantly your guest's needs. We can play everything from our regular power trio, duet, or even a solo show with Jimmy plus we can always add other intrumentation.

Corporate Events, Private Parties, Casinos, Wedding, Bars, Restaurants, and Music Venues

We are a Variety Cover Band, Rock, Blues, Country, Southern Rock, Funk, Soul Jam Band


Client Testimonials:

We had a great experience with the Jimmy Hudson Band! We hired them for our annual party and they were professional, easy to work with and entertaining! I would definitely recommend them to anyone having a event that wants their guests to be entertained!

Far too often, musicians playing in small local venues are modestly talented hacks faking their way through tired frat-boy standards. But then there's Jimmy Hudson.
Jimmy is a proud son of Memphis and its rich musical heritage. The Memphis influence is deep. It's there in every note he plays and in how he connects with his audience.
He holds himself to the highest standards. He's quick to tell you that he is, after all, a professional and means it. It's not just in his musical style, but also in his commitment to his craft. He respects his elders—legends like Steve Cropper and the late Shawn Lane who remain profound influences on his music.
His skills as a guitarist are unmatched on the local scene. He surrounds himself with fine supporting players who can go from blues to soul to country to original tunes as fast as Jimmy, and Jimmy can do it fast. No one reads his audience better than Jimmy.
And the audiences are responding. I've seen Jimmy win over a variety of audiences—bikers, country and blues fans, young folks attending their first show, oldsters who thought they were too cynical and faded to care about music go from watching without interest while they talked and drank, to paying closer attention to the music, to getting on their feet, moving with the groove.
Knowing what we know about Jimmy and his music, my wife and I hired Jimmy and his band for a private party (our 10th anniversary). Our guests were friends, neighbors and family, a real mixture of folks—doctors, lawyers, corporate CEO's farmers, a mailman, a couple of talented musicians, retired cops. After only a few tunes, I heard the buzz from the crowd "Who is this guy? Where'd they get him? Where can we go to hear him again? Let's hire him for our next party!"
I've seen hundreds of guitar players in my life in places from small juke joints in the Mississippi Delta, to legendary clubs in New Orleans, Chicago, California, Hawaii, Europe. Many have been true greats—blues and rock legends like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Albert King, Steve Cropper, James Burton, great country players like Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Albert Lee; bluegrass masters like Doc Watson, Tony Rice, Robert Shafter. What separates these musicians from the pack is a commitment to their craft and heritage and a deep respect for their audience—the kind of commitment and respect Jimmy brings to every performance.

Absolutely amazing time with this band! This band knows their instruments and the vocals were insane! The crowd was engaged and loved your sound! Thank you for rocking the streets in Downtown Reynoldsburg! We look forward to having you back (as do many other owners around town)! You left a wonderful impression! Excellent job! P.S. Tell Bree that Lisa says, "You're a rock star!"

WoW!!!!! Is truly all I can say! From the second we contacted Jimmy Hudson to do our event date he was so accommodating! To offering to play "special" songs at our reunion to moving things around to play on our selected date! This band is so professional and talented! I still can not believe the talent that was provided vs the money we paid! Not only do I highly recommend him and his band but, he will be playing at any future events I may book!

I hired Mr. Hudson to play a charity benefit at out restaurant as a last minute act, and let me tell you that he delivered on every single level. His mix of blues/rock/country kept the crowd cheering for more after his set was finished. He also shreds the hell out of a guitar. The man can play behind the back, and with his tongue, evoking something reminiscent of Hendrix. Overall, his performance was excellent and his bassist was great too! I would highly recommend Mr. Hudson to anyone looking for one of the best shows of their lives.
