About

Big jim Kohler 

Man of the Blues

Risks and challenges

Being raised in an Irish family just outside NYC you learn how to scrap at a young age. After hearing Osceola Blues man, Son Seals at age 13, Big Jim Kohler was hooked on Seals as well as the blues.

Prior to the release of the Jim Kohler Band’s debut disc “Way Down In The Blues” came the call Kohler could only dream about getting. He was called up for being Son’s back up band in the east and quite often, Big Jim was called to Chicago to play alongside of Son.

After Son’s passing Big Jim played throughout the East and would be asked to back Mississippi native Byther Smith. Larry McCray along with old friends,Linsay Alex and David Bromberg are just some of the greats he has had the pleasure to share the stage with.

2019 marks 30 years of Big Jim’s spreading his brand of NY Blues with hints of Chicago stylings, Osceola influences, and Delta inspirations, being shared all over the land. “I just go out, whether it be at festivals or corner bars and play my blues,” say Big Jim. “Whatever happens, happens,” he continues, “I just know I give it all I got!” He says this knowing that the old timers would accept nothing less.
This next project is special to me. Featuring songs that have been written for a long time. Many song were commissioned by Son Seals before his death. Health issues and natural disasters put it on the sidelines, but now it’s time to bring it to the worlds.
Thanks for your interest.
