In Memory of James Badger

Sadly, we lost James suddenly in November, 2020. He was a true talent, friend and supporter of the arts in Vancouver, BC. Specializing in roots-style music, he enjoyed playing old country, blues, rockabilly, New Orleans-style, R&B and old rock & roll. His nickname was “Hollywood Jimmie” because he’s so NOT Hollywood.

Performance and recording credits include: Juno-nominated James Buddy Rogers, Long John Baldry, Jimmy D Lane, Juno-winner Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Harpdog Brown, Steve Kozak, JJ Lavallee, The Rocket Revellers, DerbyTown, Lonesome Sinners, Bill Hills & The Fabulous Aces plus many others.
