The David Grisman Quintet is an acoustic string band that plays in many different traditions including bluegrass, swing, and latin. As a full time member of the DGQ for twenty-four years, Jim has had the opportunity to play and record with many great musicians including: Stephane Grappelli, Sven Assmussen, Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck, Del McCoury and Jerry Garcia. It was Jim’s work with Jerry Garcia in the Garcia-Grisman Band that produced many popular albums and a documentary movie (Grateful Dawg). To date Jim has played bass on six Grammy-nominated recordings.
He's in town with Rob Ferguson, who is looking to set up a factory here in F-Town to produce his super food frozen sandwiches known as Cruzers. Both are high school & college pals of Chris Johnson, who owns the Rukmapura Hotel and is a downtown developer and lover of quality music. And Jim will be bringing along his special deluxe Paris-made 1850 acoustic stand up bass
