Hailing from Bruce Springsteen country, Jimmy Dunn has been playing the classic hits that we’ve all come to know and love since 1974.
Throughout his successful and diverse career he has played in various rock club bands, solo acts, acoustic acts, lounge bands and of course at the legendary Jersey Shore. Jimmy started his career as a guitarist, but with his gift of a great ear, he quickly picked up several other instruments including bass guitar, drums, keyboards and most notably, his Paul McCartney style voice.
Jimmy preformed in Beatles Tribute Show for several years and has also performed at illustrious venues such as “The Mudd Club” and “CBGB” in NYC, made famous by its frequent patrons, Lou Reed, Madonna, Andy Warhol, David Bowie and performers such as Joan Jett, Talking Heads and the Ramones.
He also frequently performed at “The Legendary Dobbs,” in Philadelphia, which was established in 1974 as a Rock ‘n’ Roll bar and has a long list of Rock ‘n’ Roll legend performers, George Thorogood, Nirvana and Green Day.
Jimmy has also rocked out at some of the most famous Jersey shore spots including “The Stone Pony,” “Tony Mart,” and “Claridge Casino.” Yet, most notably he recorded at the famous “Electric Lady Studios”, the recording studio founded and made famous by Jimi Hendrix. Electric Lady Studios is the oldest working and successful recording studio in NYC, and has housed such artists as Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Patti Smith and Stevie Wonder.
Jimmy’s continued love of music and desire to connect with his audience, has lead him back down the road of performing as a solo act in an acoustic setting. He brings to life some of the classic rock songs from artists such as The Beatles, James Taylor, Eric Clapton, CCR, The Monkees, Cat Stevens and Simon & Garfunkel. And even though there might not be that classic Jersey sax player on stage, you’ll swear you’re reliving your carefree days spent at the Jersey Shore.
