$400 - $2500 per event
Born in the summer of 2006 at Handy Park on Beale Street in Memphis TN, The Jimmy Hudson Band has had an incredible ride entertaining thousands of people in hundreds if not thousands of places. We are not your average band, we are the product of being lifelong Memphis Musicians who hold our musical pride as an homage to those great music pioneers putting blues and country on the map later forming Rock N Roll, Rockabilly, and Soul. In the summer of 2016 The Jimmy Hudson Band re-formed in Central Ohio after playing for many years headlining various venues on Beale Street, The Tunica Casinos, and throughout the Mid-South.

In between National Tours where we have played shows with the likes of Montgomery Gentry, Little Texas, Black Oak Arkansas, Willie Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Barkays, Bobby Blue Bland, Ben Cauley, Al Green, The Doobie Brothers, Travis Tritt, and Brett Michaels, too name a few. Every single time we open for one of these bands or play a show alongside of them we get invited on stage or they join us. We are that band that will provide exactly the show that is needed for you and most importantly your guest's needs. We can play everything from our regular power trio, duet, or even a solo show with Jimmy. Depending on what you are wanting being from Memphis that is also well established in Nashville and Columbus we can add however many pieces needed as well which also sets us apart from your average band.This includes horns, keys, organs, pedal steel, fiddle, harmonica, World Class Nashville Broadway Singers and Musicians, its your party so you tell us what you want and lets see what we can come up with. The only limit is our combined imaginations and then some, and that is just putting the show together. Now depending on how much time we have and our budget and which size band you decide to go with we can also learn up to 5 songs just for you.

We had a great experience with the Jimmy Hudson Band! We hired them for our annual party and they were professional, easy to work with and entertaining! I would definitely recommend them to anyone having a event that wants their guests to be entertained!

Far too often, musicians playing in small local venues are modestly talented hacks faking their way through tired frat-boy standards. But then there's Jimmy Hudson.
Jimmy is a proud son of Memphis and its rich musical heritage. The Memphis influence is deep. It's there in every note he plays and in how he connects with his audience.
He holds himself to the highest standards. He's quick to tell you that he is, after all, a professional and means it. It's not just in his musical style, but also in his commitment to his craft. He respects his elders—legends like Steve Cropper and the late Shawn Lane who remain profound influences on his music.
His skills as a guitarist are unmatched on the local scene. He surrounds himself with fine supporting players who can go from blues to soul to country to original tunes as fast as Jimmy, and Jimmy can do it fast. No one reads his audience better than Jimmy.
And the audiences are responding. I've seen Jimmy win over a variety of audiences—bikers, country and blues fans, young folks attending their first show, oldsters who thought they were too cynical and faded to care about music go from watching without interest while they talked and drank, to paying closer attention to the music, to getting on their feet, moving with the groove.
Knowing what we know about Jimmy and his music, my wife and I hired Jimmy and his band for a private party (our 10th anniversary). Our guests were friends, neighbors and family, a real mixture of folks—doctors, lawyers, corporate CEO's farmers, a mailman, a couple of talented musicians, retired cops. After only a few tunes, I heard the buzz from the crowd “Who is this guy? Where'd they get him? Where can we go to hear him again? Let's hire him for our next party!”
I've seen hundreds of guitar players in my life in places from small juke joints in the Mississippi Delta, to legendary clubs in New Orleans, Chicago, California, Hawaii, Europe. Many have been true greats—blues and rock legends like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Albert King, Steve Cropper, James Burton, great country players like Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Albert Lee; bluegrass masters like Doc Watson, Tony Rice, Robert Shafter. What separates these musicians from the pack is a commitment to their craft and heritage and a deep respect for their audience—the kind of commitment and respect Jimmy brings to every performance.

Overall Talent

I hired Mr. Hudson to play a charity benefit at out restaurant as a last minute act, and let me tell you that he delivered on every single level. His mix of blues/rock/country kept the crowd cheering for more after his set was finished. He also shreds the hell out of a guitar. The man can play behind the back, and with his tongue, evoking something reminiscent of Hendrix. Overall, his performance was excellent and his bassist was great too! I would highly recommend Mr. Hudson to anyone looking for one of the best shows of their lives.
