Jimmy became the founder member of Stayin Alive following a successful appearance on the hit TV show 'Stars In Their Eyes' in 1994. He performed the Bee Gees classic No1 smash' Massachusetts' as Robin Gibb to stunning critical reviews in the national press, in particular The Daily Mirror, who did a separate feature on him and his role on the popular family show.
Jimmy started singing at the age of three to massed crowds at seaside resorts in front of juke boxes, a story that Matthew Kelly found amusing during Jimmy's T.V. interview. During family holidays it was never easy keeping Jimmy off the stage, he would get up and perform at the drop of a hat. Jimmy started to enter talent competitions whilst on holiday with the family, and it proved to be a wise decision, as Jimmy went on to win the Butlins Star Trail National Talent Contest no less than three times at the ages of 13, 14 and 15, winning him a Trophy, and the family one of many holidays.
He has played the role of a few legendary singers, once for the Channel 4 magazine programme 'Weekly Review' as the late, great 50's rocker Buddy Holly and in London's West End as Freddie Mercury of Queen in the stage musical 'Freak-Out!' under the direction of legendary TV impresario Johnny Hamp (the man who gave The Beatles their TV debut).
Jimmy has been involved in several bands such as Mr Blue and Lorenzo's Pink Windmill gaining a large following and winning various club awards for his talents as a singer / musician / songwriter. When not performimg with the band, Jimmy likes to concentrate on his own songwriting skills and his passion for creating his own music, and also likes to spend as much time as possible with his son Kyle.
