"Never before have we had such a demand for an artist where in less than a year he has been asked to return to the area for what is anticipated to be one of the hottest shows and already selling." states Ken Briana Entertainment Director for Maddy's and Kowloon. Ken goes on to say "I book shows daily and the huge demand for Jamison's return has been overwhelming, working with the promoter and management is helping to make this a tremendous experience for everyone. The hype around this show already, the ticket sales early on, is something we don't often experience."
Jimi Jamison is much more than the former lead singer of Survivor. As the front man for a group called Target in the late 70’s, he released two albums on A&M Records, moved on to sing with Cobra on Epic Records in the early 80’s, and by 1983, Jimi received an invitation to join Survivor, while lead singer having numerous Top Ten Songs, #1 Videos and Millions of CD sales!
Continuously acclaimed as one of the Top Ten Male Vocalists in the World, Jimi Jamison delivers a strong and powerful performance. "I`m Always Here", which he wrote and performed for the number 1 TV show worldwide,"Baywatch", is certain to solidify his standing as one of the premier performers in the music industry today.
Among Jamison’s best known performances are "Burning Heart", from the Rocky IV movie which hit (#2) on the Billboard Charts,"High On You" (#8), and "The Search Is Over" (#4). He released several solo albums …When Love Comes Down - 1991 and Empires - 1999. Most recently his album Crossroads Moment which is another fan favorite.
Presently Jamison touring worldwide and is recording. Jimi has a single out "The Restless Kind" which started as a contest at a radio station in Berlin and has hit number one overseas for a few weeks now - and hitting the US via YouTube.
Jimi co-wrote and sang the theme,"I'm Always Here" for BAYWATCH television series and reunited with Survivor in 2000 through the release of their new album Reach in 2006 and in 2005, an Emmy nominated Starbucks commercial.
“'Jamison’s command of the stage, and ability to take a roomful of people and hypnotically hold their attention for 70 minutes – all eyes on one performer – is something I have never experienced before.” Jeff Lawrence, Boston radio legend
"Jimi's vocal and performance abilities are above and beyond anyone I have worked with or promoted in my entire career. Jimi can and does Rock the House from the moment he hits the stage. He puts on a phenomenal show. Jimi takes the audience and cradles them in the palm of his hand throughout the entire performance. It's the experience of a lifetime. He is one of those artists who keeps getting better and better easy to sell a Jimi Jamison show out. People just love Jimi Jamison in the Boston area, E:s have been flooding in with requests to send him congratulations on the performance walking side by side with Manny Pacquiao onto the ring just over a week ago in front of millions of people everyone in the area is psyched for him." Andrea Watson Promoter and Managing Editor - Rock Hard Magazine USA
“In the beginning God created heaven and earth, on the sixth day he invented Heavy Metal, and on the seventh day the creator of the universe rested; his ears ringing from all the power chords he created. And these power chords needed power vocals and that's why Jimi Jamison and his angelic voice is such an important sound today.” Author/Critic: AJ Wachtel”
