Singer/guitarist Jimmy Stowe began his music career at the “Surf” Ballroom on Nantasket Beach just outside of Boston. The New England born entertainer was a member of a popular teenage dance band called “Horse” and gained regional recognition headlining special events, high schools and colleges as well as many private affairs. On one such occasion in mid-summer 1973, the group of talented teens appeared with the legendary pop artist “Jim Croce”. This early success and experience would set the tone for Jimmy’s future endeavors in show business.
After completing studies at the University of Miami he returned to New England and ventured out as a solo performer. From the ski resorts of Vermont to the seaports of Boston and Newport, Jimmy rocked capacity crowds. Influenced by his love of early rock and roll, acoustic pop and country music, he delivered a mixed bag of high energy tunes and intimate ballads. The purity of his vocal impressions and embracing acoustic guitar accompaniment combined to shape a truly engaging song stylist and showman.
Jimmy’s love of warm sun and sandy beaches brought him back to South Florida, where he now resides. His extensive list of accomplishments and notable engagements, since his migration, speaks for the depth of his talent. Performances with Rick Nelson and Jimmy Buffett, along with concert tours of Australia and Norway with “Dr. Hook” and his “Tribute to Buddy Holly” oldies show aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line, are a few of his most memorable career experiences.
Today, Jimmy and his band, appropriately named “The Stowaways”, enjoy success as a world-class corporate party band. Performing throughout the Southeast, this highly acclaimed musical entity performs at hundreds of major events and affairs each year. From the high profile resorts of Palm Beach to the Conch Republic of Key West, Jimmy Stowe and the Stowaways have secured a reputation of the highest standards for entertainment.
Jimmy has not skipped a beat in his musical career. After recording two CD’s for the Sheraton Resorts and a debut single, “Boogie On The Border”, this seasoned performer is now taking time to create his own brand of heartfelt American pop music. Inspired by an appreciation for life, his daughter Erin, and the desire to make people happy, Jimmy Stowe is dedicated to making music and enjoying the time of his life.
