MILLIONAIRES HOLIDAY PARTY & JAM featuring Jim McCarty ...
Jim McCarty, the legendary rock guitarist from Detroit is sitting in with the Millionaires!
Jim hit it big in his teens as a founding member of The Detroit Wheels, Cactus, and The Rockets. He was friends with Jimi Hendrix and jammed with him after shows into the wee hours of the morning. He knew everybody and played with everyone! Still does!
Jim won a Grammy award (2005) when Les Paul recorded one of the songs he wrote with the Buddy Miles band. I have seen Jim in the past year 3 or 4 times. What strikes me most about him is his true love of the guitar. Not celebrity, not fame, but the music...
We've been lucky to see him do just about everything. Except play with a 10-piece big band!
That changes tomorrow night. Jim is going to get on stage and jam with The MILLIONAIRES at their Holiday Party and Jam. McCarty backed by a ten piece band! Something you don't see ever and something you don't want to miss! The place gets jumping around 7 pm and cover is just $5. Avoid the NYE crush or just get started a day early!
