Legendary singer-songwriter, Jim Messina will perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Friday, October 15, 2021. Messina’s legacy of musical genius spans five decades, three super groups, a vibrant solo career and scores of producing and engineering credits.
While acting as producer/audio engineer for Buffalo Springfield, Messina ultimately joined the band as its bass player. When “the Springfield” disbanded in 1968, Jim and fellow bandmate Richie Furay formed Poco. With Jim on lead guitar, Poco defined a new musical genre, Country Rock.
After three successful albums, Jim was ready for a change. He left to return to his passion for producing music and signed as an independent producer with Columbia Records. Columbia asked Jim to work with an unknown Kenny Loggins in November 1970. While helping him get ready for a record and touring, the two discovered that they worked well together. Jim agreed to sit in on Kenny’s first album. Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina “Sittin’ In” was released in November of 1971 and an accidental duo was formed. Loggins & Messina released eight hit albums, had scores of hit songs and sold over 16 million albums. They had become one of rock’s most successful recording duos ever. But, it was time for the duo to go their separate ways.
After a series of celebrated solo acoustic tours, Jim formed a band made of acclaimed musicians who have played with him at various points in his career. Jim’s latest release, “In the Groove”, includes selected hits from all three of Jim’s previous bands as well as several of his solo works.
