Jimmy Weber recently retired from active duty after 24 years of service with the U.S. Air Force. A former member of the U.S. Air Force Band, he deployed five times, bringing comfort and hope to our service members in Iraq, Afghanistan and dozens of other countries in Southwest Asia, Africa, Europe and North and South America.
During his illustrious music career, Jimmy Weber has shared the stage with country music royalty including Kenny Rogers, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Clint Black and Trace Adkins to name a few. In addition, Jimmy has opened for music’s elite including Rodney Atkins, Sara Evans, Josh Turner, Joe Nichols, and the legendary Beach Boys. A highlight of Jimmy’s career was playing lead guitar and singing backup vocals for John Denver at Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium. As part of a USO tour that performed over the Thanksgiving holiday for U.S. troops in the Middle East, Jimmy toured as the lead guitarist and background vocalist with Wayne Newton, Neil McCoy, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and Paul Rodriguez. This trip included shows aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, as well as stops in Bahrain and Kuwait.
One listen to Jimmy’s music draws comparisons to his diverse musical influences, including the Eagles, Vince Gill, Glen Campbell and James Taylor. His self-titled album showcases his unique vocal style and impressive guitar work and is a collection of stories and memories about the places he has been and the people he has met along the way.
Jimmy’s Chautauqua concert will feature songs off of his album, including “I Moved a Mountain,” a song about his grandfather, as well as selections from Johnny Cash, George Jones, Glen Campbell and classic rock and roll.
