Available for Fill-in Gigs

I am available for fill-in gigs within the Greater Birmingham and Northeast AL areas. I am willing to go further if the compensation justifies it. I have professional grade equipment and take good care of it, as well as reliable transportation. I can do backing vocals as well as main vocals for some songs if needed, and have done fill-in bass guitar work in the past as well.

I am only interested in working with actively gigging acts, e.g., cover bands, acoustic acts, etc…. I am willing to work with an established original act that is making money, but have no interest in joining a group not doing this. My stage setup is well organized and quick to set up, and I keep a “bag of tricks” with me that has gotten me labeled as a boy scout for always being prepared. My intent is to be professional in all band dealings and expect to be shown the same respect.

“James Higgins performed a wide variety of songs at our event. He is an exceptional guitar player and performer. Even with mosquitos flying all around him (outdoor, evening event), he kept right on singing and playing. Everyone had a great time and loved the music. We will definitely ask him back for our next event.”  —Dotty H.

“James was awesome. The music was the best. Will definitely use him for our next event.” —Russell M.

“Music was good. People really seemed to enjoy the music both as entertainment and background music. Thanks again for playing for us.” —Mary M.
