A night on the town yesterday. Caught Jimmy Vivino and The Les Paul Trio at Iridium at 830PM and then to the Cutting Room to see Tammy Faye Starlight as Nico (Velvet Underground). But more on Tammy/Nico tomorrow.
Jimmy was leader of the Conan house band, as well as the Tonight Show, The Tonight Show with Conan and the early Conan on NBC. He was also a member of the Beatles tribute band, The Fab Faux.
When not appearing weeknights on TBS, Vivino divides his time between recording sessions and live gigs throughout the country. In addition to his solo work, Vivino plays with the successful Beatles tribute band “The Fab Faux.” Vivino has also recorded and played live with such legends as Johnnie Johnson, Hubert Sumlin, Levon Helm and Al Kooper. Earlier in his career Jimmy got his start producing playing and arranging for such artists as Phoebe Snow, Laura Nyro, John Sebastian and Donald Fagen.
