Jim Lugo: Guestbook


July 22, 2015

We saw you at Valley Ho last Sunday. I thought you were very good rippin' through the standards, great arrangements by the way. But it turns out you've got a social conscience as well. I still want to change the world too. Maybe we'll see you again sometime.
Thanks for the brunch serenade,

Aiden "Jim's biggest fan" is heading in for surgery on Monday morning. Tomorrow night we are heading to Fatso's pizza just as we did almost six years ago before his 2nd heart surgery. The best part of that night was meeting you and watching that brave 2 year old be mesmerized by your music. That was quite therapeutic for us all. Hope all is well with you!
Much love,
Aiden's Crew

Hi Jim - Just listened to Cycle of Life and Hard Rain - both songs are fantastic - they are very captivating and moving - the words and chords have a sense of nostalgia about them yet are a fresh and real look at life today! Really great. xoxo Andrea

Ever since I recived your CD during the summer of 2006 at the Beach house in Newport Beach CA, I haven't been able to take it out of my car stereo. There are times when I am feeling down, and I i need to do is go for a ride in my car and listen to your CD and know that Anything's Possible.
I'll be in Arizona in June and would love to be at one of your sets. I don't know if you remember meeting me, but I stayed downstairs from you at the beach house in Newport that summer.
Congrats on all of your success and I can't wait to catch your next show when I'm in town.

Good luck with the new album.

Hey there Jim. Keep me in the loop on your performances. I might be able to check it out in a few weeks.

I follow the Phoenix Backpage ads daily because I'm a musician - keyboards - extremely well trained, lots of experience, read & write & arrange, etc. etc.
I've played in Phoenix with the Woodenickel Band, also played solo at the Orpheum Theater, at Las Vegas with former Hank Williams JR band, in Europe at various resorts, etc. etc.

You said eloquently in your Backpage response - Hell, I don't even consider myself a "real musician" - I don't read music, I don't know the first thing about music theory, and I don't know my instrument like "real musicians". I can play guitar a little and I can sing a little.

But remember Jim - except for George Harrison - the other Beatles couldn't read music nor knew the first thing about music theory NOR could they play their guitars. Need I say more about The Beatles???? PLEASE don't appologize for what you don't know because the rest of us just wished we had the linep of gigs and venues you have.

God Bless America. I'm also a vet and I give thanks that I came back in one piece to continue playing my keyboards.

Hey Jim,
It was backpage, not craigslist...oops. Have a great Holiday Season. Yvette


December 7, 2007

Hi Jim,
I just read your response/ad on craigslist and couldn't agree with you more. Thanks for tellin' it like it is and having the integrity to spell it out for those smaller minded. I have been singing onstage for about 30+ years, and would love to have a chance to hear you. Look forward to meeting you. Yvette

Hi Jim,
I went to a David Gates concert and had the pleasure of seeing you. Less than a year later I remembered your face at Hammerheads and got a chance to enjoy your voice again. It was nice meeting you in person; you’re a really warm guy. Can't wait to see you again in the future.

I just bought Jim's CD and it is absolutely awesome!!

If you are looking for something new to listen to that has a great sound and a cool beat then this is a CD you will want to own.

Jim has an excellent voice and he plays guitar like you are right there hearing him live.

Great music and glad I bought the album!!

Just thought I'd drop you a surprise note...great website. I like how you have it laid out. Oh yeah, I like your music too!



March 30, 2007


My name is Tristan and I would like to thank you for the CD you gave me the other day. I really enjoyed the 3 songs you recommended (I Still Want to Change the World, Dead at Fifteen, I Can’t Understand It), the lyrical content was perfect. The guitar riffs are fairly simple yet very pleasing. I enjoy the overall sound for it is nice to hear some true rock. I am listening to the rest of the CD now and so far I have to say, I really enjoy it. Again, thanks for the CD and I can’t wait to hear the new songs your working on.


Jeff Dayton

November 9, 2006

Hey Jim,
Great to find you here! Looks like you have done a whole lot since we last saw each other (in the late 80s?). When you play the VU, please say hi to Fountain Hills for me. I remember you coming to my grandmother's house way back when so you know how deep my roots run there. Have a great show and a great fall season.

Jim just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed your new album. I can't wait for the debut because I think a lot of other folks are going to have the same reaction I did. Let's hope it goes aluminum.

Hi Jim, I just want to say thanks for the letter of appreciation and the gift. Both will always be displayed at D R S Audio Works studio in Phoenix, Arizona. It was a fun and learning experience working with You, Sandy McVety, Mike Fix and especially Evan Frankfort at Would Works Ent. in California. Best wishes and good luck to You, Lexia, Madison and Aja. Thanks again Don Scearce
