Today, there are but a handful of musicians to carry on that legacy. One of them, Jim Coston has been sharing his hard driving banjo solos and homespun sense of humor with audiences around the world for over thirty-five years.
More than just a musician - Jim Coston is an entertainer. By combining traditional Dixieland Jazz with a selection of Broadway Show tunes, popular standards, classical favorites, novelty songs and just a touch of bluegrass, Jim brings the banjo into the new millennium with an eclectic evening of music and comedy sure to please audiences everywhere.
Additionally, Jim has been featured at numerous Theaters, Fairs, Conventions, Corporate Events, Nightclubs and Touring Shows across the USA as well as local and national Radio & Television appearances.
After 21 years of living in the Historic French Quarter of New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina forced Jim to re-locate. When not on tour, Jim now lives in Khao Sai,Thailand just north of Bangkok.
Currently, Jim has two shows of approximately 45 minutes in length plus 20 minutes of additional material.
