JIMMY B BIO
Among the finest in the everlasting underground scene of the Bay Area, Jimmy B has been acclaimed as the next generation DJ. As a Bay resident, Jimmy was fortunate enough to be influenced by a diverse array of culture and music. The likes of Sly and the Family Stone, The Funkadelic, CCR, Chicago, Santana, James Brown, George Benson and Aretha Franklin all contributed to his family's eclectic LP and 8-Track collection.
They say being a younger sibling has its cons, but the pros reined supreme for Jimmy's future. As an 80's child, his older sister's music collection was comprised largely of pop, new wave, electro, Golden Age Hip-Hop, free-style, reggae, grunge, modern rock, and a dash of silence for zen moments.
Fast-forward to the late 90's when Jimmy was introduced to various forms of underground music and events. Underground music became a passion and medium which Jimmy used to fuse his varied influences together. Jimmy eventually found himself involved with several west coast events, collectives and sound systems.
In 1999 he hooked up with high school friends and became a part of the Clockwork Events Crew, producing events drawing over 20,000 people in every major city within the bay area including San Francisco (Candlestick Park), Oakland (Home Base, 85th and Baldwin, and West Grand Army Base), and San Jose (County Fair Grounds).
A move to Santa Cruz to continue college allowed Jimmy to have more creative expression. He and a group of friends produced many epic parties throughout the Santa Cruz area under the name RxFX.
More recently Jimmy has became associated with the notorious Green Gorilla Lounge and keeps busy with college, traveling, and sharing underground music via deejaying, event production and gorilla propaganda. Jimmy B also enjoys traveling, sushi, long walks on the beach and getting hyphie!
