THE AMAZING JIMMI MAYES 

https://www.jimmimayes.com/

Vocalist - Drummer - Author - Recording Artist

Available for Symposiums/ Performances 

 

CHICAGO BLUES HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE 

2018 PERFORMED IN ITALY WITH "AN EVENING WITH THE BLUES" AS THE HEADLINER

He became good friends with Jimi Hendrix and eventually he was asked by Jimi Hendrix to record with him. Mayes is on four of Hendrix’s albums.  Jimmi Mayes is available to talk about his book and perform. His book was published by University Press in 2014. A review in Blues Blast Magazine says "As you read this book, it is easy to envision the story of Jimmi Mayes being retold on the big screen. All the elements are there for a movie production – the lure of bright lights, compelling music, sex, drugs and plenty of star power. At the end, you wish that Mayes had been more forthcoming with his tales so that the book stretched out for another hundred pages. This fascinating sage makes it clear that Mayes was indeed a sideman to the stars. Definitely recommended!"
