Hi Folks.., welcome to the JIM HERMEL BAND website.



BAND NAME CHANGE


Firstly, for those who have followed the band over the years they will know that members of the JIM HERMEL BAND were also members of the JIM HERMEL & THE HOT CHIX.

In 2020 (after COVID-19 pandemic cancelled all band work like all bands everywhere) we had plenty of time 'off work' to think on our future, and we felt that it was time to move on from JIM HERMEL & THE HOT CHIX so we changed to the JIM HERMEL BAND.

Just as JIM HERMEL & THE HOT CHIX did, the JIM HERMEL BAND still 'lets loose' and continues to deliver dynamic versions of the old classics and goodtime tunes that we have built our past work reputation on, rocking out vibrant songs for those who like to get out on the floor and rock the night away or sing along to!!!

But Wow!, we sure have a lot of fun when we work and record together (2009-2020) as JIM HERMEL & THE HOT CHIX and we sincerely thank all organisers, event persons, club managers who booked the band over those 12 years!

The band has been honoured to have played many times at some the best Rock 'n' Roll events and venues in Australia over that time. It's been a blast!!



So....what's been happening musically for the JIM HERMEL BAND ?

 

MATARANKA 2021
In 2021 the band was excited to be part of a variety show 'COUNTRY & ROCK 'n' ROLL MUSIC SHOW' which did a 7 week residency at the TERRITORY MANOR MOTEL & CARAVAN PARK, MATARANKA, NT.
The show featured bands PETER COAD & THE COAD SISTERS, RUNAWAY DIXIE, and the JIM HERMEL BAND performing 5 nights a week.
