Event Details

If you go to BJ's Lounge on a Monday night you'll find Jimmy Horn performing as King James fronting his group The Special Men.  Jimmy's a big guy but King James is larger than life with a raw vocal style, a thick drawl and tons of attitude that takes us back to a time when guys from the 9th ward worked on the docks and everybody smoked cigarettes.

The Special Men is a big band playing R&B right there in the pocket featuring some of the best players in New Orleans.  Together, King James and the Special Men preserve the sound of 1940's & 50's R&B (known as Rock N Roll across the USA) right here in New Orleans where it was born.  It sounds just like "Records From The Crypt" but brand new and original.  They perform Monday nights at BJ'S Lounge and bring their sound across the country, including a performance at Lincoln Center in 2013.
