Jimmy Vivino (aka Jimmy V) has always considered himself “a blues man with a job”. Although best known for serving 26 years as Conan O’Brien’s musical director, guitarist and bandleader, his experience in the music business predates that by 20 plus years.
Jimmy V has produced, lead bands and recorded with a countless number rock and roll and blues artists for five decades including the likes of Hubert Sumlin, Warren Haynes, Bob Weir, Keith Richards, Elvis Costello, Johnnie Johnson, Son Seals, Shemekia Copeland, Levon Helm, Phoebe Snow, Dion, Laura Nyro, Bob Margolin, Lowell Fulson, John Sebastian, Joe Louis Walker and Al Kooper to name a few. When not producing, recording or touring with other artists, Jimmy still tours the country and the world with his own band and is due to release a new blues album later on this year (2022).
A musician all his life, Jimmy also devotes his time to organizations that are close to his heart and helping to promote causes such as The Blues Foundation, Songs of Love to help terminally ill children, and God’s Love We Deliver charity to feed the Hungry to name a few.
Jimmy is currently touring as a 4 piece band however he can be packaged as a solo, duo 4 piece and up to a 7 piece band.
