Northern Fried - The Band
Our music is a combination of southern and classic rock, R&B mixed with a tinge of New Orleans funk, traditional blues and reggae for flavor. Blue eyed soul meets black eyed peas in a joyous, musical mashup. Think The Allman Brothers and Little Feat, The Band, SRV, The Dead, Phish, The Meters, Hall and Oates and Steely Dan.
Featuring these artists and many others along with some tasteful originals, our performances deliver an entertaining mix of authentic musicianship and audience engagement. Combining guitar, piano and organ, a tight rhythm section and multiple-part vocal harmonies, these all mesh to deliver that Northern Fried vibe.

Through his 20+ years playing around Boston doing acoustic duo and solo work or in band settings like Northern Fried Revival, James’ lyrical guitar playing and specifically his expertise with slide guitar playing has made James a sought after player. But guitar is only one of his contributions to the band as his smooth baritone vocals – both on lead and background provide a nice contrast to Greg’s vocal approach. Jimmy shares his love of Guitar with students of all ages, when family and work can allow.
