Cher, Billie Holiday, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt, Stevie Nicks, Diana Ross or Elvis Presley -- you never quite know who's going to show up when vocal/visual impersonator Jimmy James opens his mouth. Initially famous for his spot-on tribute to Marilyn Monroe, James has blossomed into one of the most dazzling and versatile performers on the planet, not only acting like icons of stage and screen, but singing like them, too. In addition to his impressions, James is blessed with an amazing voice all his own, most recently showcased in the Billboard-charting hit single, "Fashionista." Now this true vocal phenomenon and Glammy Award-winner makes a rare San Francisco appearance for Jimmy James Live!, a one-night-only engagement at Rebel. Learn More

Featured review from Norman L.

This group of excellent musicians was sabotaged by an underperforming sound system, especially in the first show. Overly loud to the point of distortion, the singers were outmatched by the amps. Second show was considerably better, although by then about half of the audience had left. As for the performance itself, HBR tends toward long songs with repetitive lyrics with heavy jazz influences. They seem more in tune with their audience when they hold more closely to traditional tunes.
Quotes & Highlights
“Few things rejuvenate the soul like a warm fireside drink after an exhausting day in the snow. Hot Buttered Rum has that effect. Their original songs are instantly familiar and inviting, and their easygoing versions of timeless classics (the Beatles, Hank Williams) belie the intricacy of the arrangements.” —_San Francisco Chronicle _
