The Jim Cummings Band - July 6

Jim Cummings BandThe Jim Cummings Band is coming to perform at the 2019 Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival on July 6th. They'll be rocking out on the FireKeepers stage!

The Jim Cummings Band is an original music group with 7 CDs and 4 DVD releases on WMG Records. The band has performed stellar sets (Blues, Progressive, Jazz, Rock, Classic) from Coast to Coast. Members of the group have toured and shared the stage with many big talents including, but not limited to: Elvis, The Beach Boys, Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, ZZ Top, Buddy Guy, BB King, Gregg Allman, Jr and 3 Dog Night
Band Members are as follows:

Jim Cummings (Bass, Vocals) - Jim has been playing bass and singing lead since he was 13. He has toured as bassist with Gregg Alman, Odyssey, The Coasters, The Drifters, Brian Auger, and many more. He has worked with The Beach Boys, The Tubes, Edgar Winter, Dick Wagner, Grand Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper and others. Jim has played on hundreds of sessions and film scores, and also starred in local and touring productions of Jesus Christ Superstar as Jesus, Little Shop of Horrors as Audrey II (The Plant), Miss Saigon as the Pimp and My Favorite Year as Alan Swann. He still continues to tour the country with The Jim Cummings Band

Jesse Cornwell (Drums) - Jesse is a power house drummer! You won't want to miss his energetic and tasteful drum work! Jesse's inventive and showy playing is a highlight!

Chris Moberley (Hammond B3, Keys) - Chris has played everything from Jazz/Blues/Funk/Rock over the years and toured with Junior Walkwer and the All-Stars. He's now with the Jim Cummings Band as resident B-3 WHIZ! You will not hear a better B-3 player in the country (or maybe the world). PERIOD! Astounding player!

Jim Bessmer (Guitar) - Jim Bessmer was struck by lightning at age 10...which kind of sets the bar for his virtuoso guitar playing. Very few mature guitarists can match the level of proficiency that Jim exhibits. Naming Jimi Hendrix, Allman Brothers, Jimmy Page and more as influences. Jim toured for years through the country and has never stopped playing wherever and whenever he can. You're in for a treat when you watch this man wail!

Yeshwua (Congas, Percussion) - Name a major venue from LA to NYC and this guy has probably played it. The list of artists he has played with is longer than the list of venues. Yeshwua is a percussion master and his work on stage is always a show highlight. By the end of every show, he'll have at least 10 additions to his black book!

Don't miss The Jim Cummings Band in Concert on July 6th! It'll be a rocking good time!
