I laughed. I cried. I got in touch with my inner child and bought him an ice cream cone.
Then I laughed some more. -Eliot Kohen
Jim's casual, unscripted stage presence provides an intimacy with his audience
that few performers attain. His self-deprecating humor, rather than projecting any
self-consciousness, simply brings the audience closer.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening of entertainment. -Louise Drlik

The Tricklock Reptilian Lounge audience LOVES Buddy; they eat him up. Buddy is profoundly amazing ... with a guitar, a pot belly, and a sincere desire to just want to be your friend. Buddy is instantly likeable - spouting satirical songs and attitudes with such fresh innocence, unaware that he is hitting the heart ... Who knew that a pot-bellied, sincere, simple red-neck could be so damn loveable!
-- Kerry Morrigan, producer and co-host,
Tricklock Theater's Reptilian Lounge, Albuquerque, NM
I am totally a fan of Buddy's...I think if more Amurricans could just see things from his point of view (although he DOES heroically admit that his past has its flaws) well, we'd just be a lot better off, that's all. It's so refreshing to come across someone with no hidden agenda, who just wants to be my friend. Have you got any bumper stickers out for Buddy?
--The Legendary Panama Red
Buddy's repertoire of sensitive, insightful songs, often written on the very day of
performance, move his audience to tears and laughter in unexpected ways.
Just to name a few: "I Meant Every Word of Whatever I Said", "What Do You Need with a Woman Like That (When You Could Have a Man Like Me)?", "Come Here Darlin', This Won't Hurt a Bit", "Tell Your Husband I'm Coming Over", and "Fifty Year Old Lover" ( "...Don't be afraid of a little gray hair, that's the badge of well-spent years / Don't be turned off by them curly whiskers growin' outta my ears / Don't turn away from the smell of Ben Gay, steamin' offa my skin / Just try my lovin' one time, you'll be comin' back again..." )
