Currently, the Jimmy Jax Pinchak Band consists of: Jacob Delott on bass, Lael Eccard on drums, Nathan Leigh on keyboards, Stan Nirenberg on guitar and Jimmy Jax Pinchak on lead guitar and vocals.
Jimmy's band is a late 60s influenced blues/rock band with a contemporary feel. He has been influenced by Freddie King, Hendrix, The Doors, The Beatles, The Allman Brothers and his favorite Eric Clapton. He also follows the Black Keyes and Gary Clark Jr.
Jimmy's band performs classic blues such as "Trouble No More" "Going Down" and "Crossroads." His original, "Tell Me" is a rocker which includes a sizzling jam using his Vox Wah Wah pedal. Jimmy also demonstrates his abilities on slide with his original "Free Your Mind." His song "Into the Fire" has a slight country rock feel to it which Jimmy co-wrote with Wally Brandt from "Whiskey Falls."
The more recent originals include: "There Is More" which is the leadoff track on the cd. His killer wah wah leads on the guitar solo fits perfectly with arguably Jimmy's strongest song. "On the Run" was written with Stan Nirenberg. It's a outlaw song which demonstrates Jimmy's strong deep raspy voice at it's finest. "Make It Better" further demonstates Jimmy's abilities as a songwriter, selling his lyrics with passion. Jimmy's cover of Tommy James' "Draggin the Line" makes the original feel good song more of a rocker with heavy guitar rythyms and a guitar solo not found in the original. A bonus track, "Soul Sacrifice" shows the talent of the band performing live. Each member shows their chops on Carlos Santana's classic.
Currently Jimmy performs with his band in the Los Angeles area. Two originals performed but not yet recorded are "Off the Grid" and blues based "To the Days That Were Mine" both co-written with Tim Acres.
