Jim Messina & His Jesters !



Happy new year 1964 !
Early in his career (right at the outset, in fact) 18-year-old Jim Messina (Buffalo Springfield, Poco, Loggins & Messina) was a devotee of surf music, enamored of the music you know well here. The Jesters was among his early professional efforts, a surf band that included, along with Messina, Bill Beckman and Ron House on guitars, Jim Sholstedt on bass, Dave Archuleta on saxophone, and Larry Cundieff on drums. They won a lot of local band competitions in California, where the competition in the field was still fierce in 1965 and 1966, and were good enough to get to record an entire LP for Audio Fidelity, which has been one of my fav record ever since I can’t remember, I mean, Messina's guitar work is truly exceptional !
