POMPEY POP

Jimmy James

Leave a comment

Over two years, from the summer of 1965, soul band Jimmy James & the Vagabonds appeared at Portsmouth’s legendary Birdcage Club, a record 29 times. Their first album The New Religion featured photos of the club and sleeve notes about those gigs, and through a career which is still going, Jimmy has never forgotten those great nights. On Friday afternoon at 3pm Jimmy will be inducted into the Guildhall’s ‘Wall of Fame’, as one of the key visiting acts to the city. There is an open invitation to attend the event – it’s likely to resemble a Birdcage reunion!
