Married in 2005 to fellow musician Olga, Jimbo was residing in
Memphis, TN or maybe Clarksdale, MS or maybe in Como, MS
or maybe in the van.  While not out touring the country with
the Knockdown Society band or playing guitar for Buddy Guy,
Ole Jimbo is being an engineer at his Delta Recording Studio
in Como. Apparently Hambone is pretty good in the control
room as Elvis Costello recorded there along with KM Williams,
The North Mississippi All Stars, Jessie Mae Hemphill,
Arthur Williams, Floyd Lee, and others.

and conveniently across the street from the Como City Hall & the PO Leece!

In 1993 Jimbo formed Squirrel Nut Zippers in North Carolina. This Band
was a great success during the Swing Era and performed up to year 2000.
Jimbo reunited with some band members in 2007 and toured until 2010.
In 2016, Jimbo thought it was time to do it again and the Squirrel Nut Zippers
hit the road again on tour.  Of course, they are a big hit right into 2019.
