Jim Messina’s consummate legacy of musical prowess spans five decades, three acclaimed rock super groups, a vibrant solo career, and a dizzying array of game-­? changing producing and engineering credits, including the Doors, Lee Michaels, and Herb Alpert. He is an indisputable expert in the fine art of making hit music.

After the mid-­?60s, while acting as producer and recording engineer for Buffalo Springfield, Messina joined the temperamental band as bassist. After Buffalo Springfield split up in 1968, Messina’s friendship with group founder Richie Furay led to the creation of Poco. Jim switched to playing lead guitar, and the band went on to define a new musical genre that came to be known as country-­rock. After two studio and one live album with Poco, Messina chose to leave the group and devote his time to record producing.

That fateful decision led to his 1971 collaboration with newcomer Kenny Loggins. The resulting duo, Loggins and Messina, went on to record nine albums over a period of seven years, amassing sixteen million in sales.

"Poco had been some real good-time music,” reflects Messina. "Loggins & Messina just took that a step further and made it more sophisticated and attainable. Through the years, the Loggins & Messina period yielded the stuff I’m most proud of.”

Expect a musical cross section of his entire career when Jim Messina and his band comes to the Wildey!
