Jimmie regularly takes the stage for solo performances and he never disappoints. His enthusiasm and talent leaves you completely lost in his music.
It feels like every performance, for him, is the performance of his life and he loses himself until there is just Jimmie, his guitar and you his audience.
He never fails to amaze us whether he plays solo or gigs with another artist he is undoubtedly what makes Jimmie Black Bar and Restaurant the very special place it is.
His attention to details with sound systems and top class speakers and amps mean that even the heaviest rock classics are melodic and easy on the ear.
If the bar only featured Jimmie’s musical talents it would be more than enough but Mahmutlar residents and visitors are treated to a wide range of specially selected performers to compliment the resident star of the show. Mr. Jimmie Black.
Summer Season 2017 was Jimmie Blacks first year in Mahmutlar – and what a year that was. We know that 2018 is going to be incredible.
While we await further announcements for the line up for the new season 2018 lets enjoy some of the guests that were invited to perform on the Jimmie Black Stage during 2017.
Shamans made their debut performance in Mahmutlar in Jimmie Blacks during the high season. Jimmie Black Bar was the first to showcase this great band and they have become very popular in the town.
This group of musicians have played together for many years and their performances are smooth, classy and polished.
Think Dire Straits, think Floyd and think of many of the classics you have longed to hear since your teens and most of them will, at some time be covered by this group at some point.
The chief played for 10 Sunday evenings through the Summer in Jimmie Blacks. He was also the star of the show at Jimmie Blacks Christmas Eve Party
With his unique character and stage set you would be forgiven for thinking you were suddenly transported to the wild west.
His music doesn’t disappoint as he plays old blues classics and rock favourites from way back when.
THE CHIEF is a very talented star who takes his performances extremely seriously.
This is a very different band who have recently been on the Mahmutlar circuit for the past year and have been playing in Jimmie since the late season of 2017.
They sound so good in Jimmie’s Bar as they are able to access quality amplification and mellow microphone tones. Its great to see them in the spotlight to showcase their theatrical performances of hill billy blues music.
Once they have warmed up we are treated to some acrobatics as they play while climbing on their instruments, twisting and turning and entertaining the cheering crowd. Full marks for orginality, which is what is making them an increasingly popular band in the area
