“Old Friends” offers an acoustic folk/rock foundation with many elements of Celtic and Irish music, country, pop, and rock n’ roll. Jim and Tom have been joined by former band mate Tim Emmons and the three share lead vocals, a la’ Crosby, Stills and Nash. Jim handles rhythm guitar and many of the demanding vocal impersonations. Tom excels on fiddle, guitar, mandolin and banjo. If threatened with a Guinness cut-off, he’ll also pull out the tin whistle. Tim is a very talented keyboard player, guitar picker and certified Foosballian.
Over the years, these musicians have built a solid following and reputation in the greater Binghamton area, packing clubs beyond capacity in clear violation of local fire codes. With the home turf comfortably secured, the band is branching out regionally, with festivals, fairs and other special shows in addition to keeping local bar owners absolutely swimming in cash.
