“Music is a part of being human – it’s part of our nature, our fabric, our being,” says Jim. “And every person on the planet has rhythm. It starts with our heart beats and travels everywhere with us.” 

Whether performing in a community library, or large festival, Jim’s high-energy, interactive shows are always a hit with audiences and concert organizers. Jim is available solo, or with his trio band, The Hiccups. We schedule performances for Libraries, Fairs, Festivals, Performing Arts Centers, Symphonies, and other Community Events

Rocks the Library

Mr. Stinky Feet Rocks the Library 

Librarians and their patrons love Mr. Stinky Feet. Some call him a “Library Hero.” The feeling is mutual.  His anthem “Rockin’ the Library” and his 80s-style power ballad “Library Ann” are huge hits with the bookworms. He’s shattered the silence in the stacks from Albuquerque to Arlington, from Rapid City to Reston, and they keep inviting him back.

“I have never had a presenter, like Jim, who could keep the children’s undivided attention for the entire program. We love “Mr. Stinky Feet.” (K.L., School Principal, Shawnee Mission, KS)

“Thank you for the fun and joy you’re bringing to our daily routine, which is especially important with all that’s going on in the world today. Your music is “contagious” and I have gladly infected my friends and family with it.” (S.G., Parent and Teacher, Kansas City, MO)

“The style and the ease with which you interact with kids and adults alike is amazing.  You brought so many kids out of their shells today who rarely come out with strangers.  Truly a testament to your talent.  We LOVED the show….you just ROCK!” (Ms. Diggs, Great Beginnings Preschool)

“You picked me to go up on stage, and I just wanted to tell you that you really helped me with my rep, because most people make fun of my weight. So you could say you’re kind of my hero. After I got off that stage everyone said that I was so cool. Thank you.” (Breanna, 4th Grade Student, Las Vegas, NV)
