Meet The Band! : Our Interview with Jimmy Jax Pinchak Band( @JimmyJPBand )

With such a successful career in TV and film, what made you catch the music bug?


The Beatles (no pun intended)

What was your craziest fan experience?

We were playing a show in Santa Monica, when a couple of fans started re-enacting a scene from Back To The Future while we were playing Johnny B. Goode

Describe your music using only colors.

Absolutely not. It’s music, not a color… People who try and describe their music with a color are missing the point.

If you had the opportunity to change anything about the entertainment

industry what would it be?

It’s too far gone to try and change it now. We have to adapt to it, and try to beat it.

When and where will you be touring?

Anywhere we can! Playing live is what makes a good band great. We don’t have a lot booked right now, so I would check the website for future announcements.

You sound way older than 18 who were some of your musical


Eric Clapton, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Santana

What do you feel has kept you going the most?

A love for music.

“Blues/Rock That Jams”

Jimmy is a professional actor (Peter Wiggin in Ender’s Game, released in November, 2013) who is seriously pursuing his music career. Martha Troup (former manager of INXS) discovered Jimmy on the internet, checked out one of gigs and became his music manager. Jimmy has recorded his cd at Westlake Studios in Los Angeles and Stagg Street Studio in Van Nuys with his original guitar driven rockers. Currently, the Jimmy Jax Pinchak Band consists of: Jacob Delott on bass, Lael Eccard on drums, Nathan Leigh on keyboards, Stan Nirenberg on guitar and Jimmy Jax Pinchak on lead guitar and vocals.

Jimmy’s band is a late 60s influenced blues/rock band with a contemporary feel. He has been influenced by Freddie King, Hendrix, The Doors, The Beatles, The Allman Brothers and his favorite Eric Clapton. He also follows the Black Keyes and Gary Clark Jr. 

Jimmy’s band performs classic blues such as “Trouble No More” “Going Down” and “Crossroads.” His original, “Tell Me” is a rocker which includes a sizzling jam using his Vox Wah Wah pedal. Jimmy also demonstrates his abilities on slide with his original “Free Your Mind.” His song “Into the Fire” has a slight country rock feel to it which Jimmy co-wrote with Wally Brandt from “Whiskey Falls.”

The more recent originals include: “There Is More” which is the leadoff track on the cd. His killer wah wah leads on the guitar solo fits perfectly with arguably Jimmy’s strongest song. “On the Run” was written with Stan Nirenberg. It’s a outlaw song which demonstrates Jimmy’s strong deep raspy voice at it’s finest. “Make It Better” further demonstates Jimmy’s abilities as a songwriter, selling his lyrics with passion. Jimmy’s cover of Tommy James’ “Draggin the Line” makes the original feel good song more of a rocker with heavy guitar rythyms and a guitar solo not found in the original. A bonus track, “Soul Sacrifice” shows the talent of the band performing live. Each member shows their chops on Carlos Santana’s classic.

Josh Mosser (co-wrote and engineered Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive) mixed down the tracks and Grammy award winner Erick Labson mastered it. Jimmy is also a professional actor (Peter Wiggin from Ender’s Game)
