Rod Stewart’s original guitarist and collaborative songwriter

Rod Stewart’s original guitarist and collaborative songwriter teams up with former X-Factor finalist to celebrate an evening of smash hits!

Jim was the main-stay of Rod’s first band after he left the Faces. From 1976 to 1994, Jim co-wrote the hits, recorded the albums, and toured the world. Songs like You’re in My Heart, I was Only Joking, Baby Jane, Blondes Have More Fun, Forever Young, D’Ya Think I’m Sexy, the list goes on and on…

A fantastic musician in his own right, Jim has also worked with the biggest names in the music business:- names like Art Garfunkel, Ronnie Wood, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Joe Cocker, Katie Melua, Kid Rock, Michael Bolton, Paul Carrack, Paul Rodgers, Cat Stevens, Family, Gary Brooker, Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Steve Cropper, Roger Taylor, Tina Turner, Cockney Rebel.

Singer/guitarist Ben Mills teamed up with Jim and the band in October 2011. An accomplished singer/songwriter in his own right, Ben reached the final of UK X Factor in 2006 (the year Leona Lewis won), and launched a successful solo career on the back of it. He’s “having a blast” singing Rod Stewart’s back catalogue, with the man who co-wrote the songs, and he’s enjoying putting his own stamp on the hits that everyone knows and loves.

Drummer Harry James is best known for his work with legendary UK rock band Thunder, as well as drumming for Magnum, Steve Harley, Jon Lord and Glenn Hughes. The musical backbone of the band is completed by Bass player Pat Davey (Tom Robinson Band) and pianist Sam Tanner (Alexander O’Neil, Nate James & Duffy).
