Straight like a bullet flying into the air, hop on into our ’58 Buick for a wild musical ride!
Taking the route by storm, this music historian not only blazes through time period cover songs that sound like original recordings from a bygone era, but he also brings in exciting new music to the 2020s realm with nods to his hometown of Oklahoma City and his family's rich musical heritage.
Whether an event is looking for an acoustic duo to provide bluegrass and old time country ballads or a blown up celebration calling for an orchestra with a singer who can both croon and belt out biting rock n roll from one song to the next, Jimmy literally does it all.
From Route 66's 1920s inception to the 1960s and beyond, celebrating music created in and for the people along the route. Having Jimmy's team for your event is like a history lesson in American music art forms while not realizing you are in the front row of his lecture because everyone is on their feet dancing their cares away.
As we look forward to the Route 66 Centennial Celebrations in the coming years, Jimmy Dale is busy preparing more original music that brings new life to Route 66 and his labor of love for it that extends far beyond the entertainment aspect.

"In the 80s, acts like the Stray Cats and Robert Gordon revived the old-fashioned exciting rockabilly sound. And if there is one contemporary artist who can once again bring such a revival, it is the American singer, guitarist and pianist Jimmy Dale Richardson."
