Jay Buchanan and Jim Pearson, Dec. 1

Live in concert at the new Rockin' Horse Ranch

December 1, 2007, 7:00 P.M.
181 Hart Bench
Darby, MT 59829

Join Jim and Donna Pearson for an evening of out-of-this-world music from two accomplished musicians. And help warm up their new house and recording studio in the pines!

Jim Pearson

Jim Pearson is a versatile musician, singer & songwriter who is vastly experienced in numerous styles, including Blues, Rock, Country, and Jazz. He's toured all over the world with legendary live bands and major artists such as Edgar Winter, Isaac Hayes and Mark Isham. An accomplished studio artist with an extensive background in composing and arranging, "Jimi" has spent most of his life producing others and making them sound good, and now we will have the treat of seeing him perform several of his new original songs. Jim is not only an extremely gifted and creative guitar player, he is also well versed on the keyboard, to put it mildly, and his beautiful melodies have been known to bring bring tears to even the most stoic people.

Jay Buchanan

Somewhere between Dave Matthews and Darius Rucker (Hootie to you!) is South Cali singer/songwriter, Jay Buchanan, the namesake and leader of the recently disbanded national recording act, Buchanan. With his powerful, emotional, incredibly passionate & soulful performance, you will find yourself leaning forward in your seat and spellbound. JAY CAN BELT IT OUT LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS!!

More than a frontman when it comes to the delivery of the music, Jay also plays a variety of instruments on the band’s 2004 disc, All Understood (produced by veteran Don Gehman----John Mellencamp/REM/Tracy Chapman), and plays them well. He has also created some damn tasty arrangements that will be found ear-appealing to everyone from folkies, to jazzers, to progressive/jam rock fans. Click here to listen to samples from his solo acoustic disc.

His accomplishments include opening for Hootie & The Blowfish, playing a side stage at a John Mayer/Counting Crows concert, and the soundtrack "If you Leave" for the 2007 movie "Waitress" starring Cheryl Hines, Kerri Russell, Jeremy Sisto and Andy Griffith.

Hi Jay!

Just wanted to say that the concert last night at the Pearsons' was mind blowing! Fantastic!!

Actually no words to describe...Jay Buchanan has a beautiful, powerhouse voice. He really didn't even NEED the microphone! Tons of charisma. Exceptional creative writing--music and lyrics!! The stories were great, too.

And where do I even start on Jim Pearson? What a genuine talent (sore throat and all) and unabashed personality. Hospitality plus. What else can I say? Looking forward to more concerts there.

Last, but certainly not least, we loved your New Orleans homage!!! Looking forward, also, to the next concert in January at Lapwai.

Larry and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute last night. So glad we came.

Thanks again (and again) for all your hard work and promotion.

Mary and Larry
