The term 'Uncle Jim' is not a figurative one. Jim has 26 nieces and nephews! He started writing children's music years ago when he would sing to them -- an they would come back months later singing the same song! Jim's talent shines on both electric and upright acoustic bass, playing with performers ranging from jazz legend Mose Allison to Ringo Starr.
As a member of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band since 1989, Jim has been writing recording and performing worldwide with Buffett, and appearing on numerous television shows.
Jim also co-writes and performs across the U.S. with his brother, Peter Mayer, as a member of the Peter Mayer Group. Jim resides in Nashville, TN.
