Few sounds are as distinctively American as Dixieland Jazz. From the smoke filled clubs of New Orleans' French Quarter and up the Mississippi River on the great stern wheelers, banjo players have spread a style of toe tapping good time music recognized the world over.

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 almost thirty 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 tunes and just a touch of bluegrass, Jim Coston brings the banjo into the new millennium with an eclectic evening of music and comedy sure to please audiences everywhere.

Jim Coston has been a featured headline Cabaret Act on over 80 different cruise ships worldwide. Additionally, he has been featured at numerous Theaters, Fairs, Conventions, Corporate Events and Nightclubs 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 beautiful Jomtien Beach, Thailand (about 140 km southeast of Bangkok).

  Currently, Jim has three shows of approximately 45 minutes in length.

Update! Jim now has two complete shows available using high quality Backing (Click) Tracks!

These tracks can be used alone or can be used to augment a rhythm section or small combo to produce a full sounding show without the expense of a complete orchestra!
