Jim played in The Backtalk Band: one of Central New York's most versatile groups.
Comprised of four accomplished and professional musicians from the Ithaca, NY area,
The Backtalk Band had been pleasing audiences for over twenty-five years. The Backtalk Band's
playlist read like a Who's Who of Rock 'n' Roll. Each performance ran the gamut of Rock 'n' Roll
history from the 1960's (The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Turtles, The Young Rascals,
The Monkees, The Rolling Stones, Roy Orbison and more), through the 1970's (Loggins & Messina,
Van Morrison, Billy Joel, etc.), up to the 1980's and beyond (The Romantics, Bob Seger,
John Cougar Mellencamp, Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen).
