My name is Jim Sargent. I have a blessed life and feel incredibly fortunate for everything in my life. I grew up in the beautiful state of Colorado, have a wonderful wife and 2 amazing kids, and enjoy many close friendships with some of the most incredible people from all over the world.
My love for singing and playing the guitar began when my mother dragged me to my first group guitar lessons when I was in grade school. My real passion for entertaining in front of live audiences began several years later in 1986 when I began performing in a small little bar in Dallas, TX called Mimi’s Pub, while attending SMU. Those were great and wild times, every Tuesday and Thursday, playing until 2:00 AM to a packed house of SMU’s finest. I also played in other Dallas establishments such as Chelsie Corner, Andrews, Adairs Saloon, Trees, Club Dada and others. However, it is safe to say that the experience at Mimi’s changed my life forever.
Since that time I have entertained people all around the world: Bouzios, Brazil; Copenhagen, Denmark; St. Thomas, VI; Toronto, CA; Buenos Aires, Argentina, Sydney, Australia and all around the US. My most exciting performing experience came in 2005 when I performed for 4 hours at Red Rocks Amphitheatre just outside of Denver, Colorado with some great friends. (YouTube videos on page 1).
Now, I mainly play in Dallas, Texas, and Crested Butte, Colorado, and at select private parties. I am also busy writing and recording a series of new songs and will continue to post them on this sight.
I love life and don’t plan to stop any time soon…!!
My song list includes mostly acoustic rock and country covers from the 1960s-2000s and several originals (some on page 1). CCR, CSN, Grateful Dead, Neal Young, Dylan, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffet, Pearl Jam, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, John Denver, U2, REM, Springsteen, Eagles, Cold Play, Johnny Cash, many others.
I look forward to seeing you on the road somewhere… you never know!!
