Kankakee Grille
Jimmy Fastiggi

“Americana rock and roots” is the way Jimmy describes the music that he plays.
He started playing guitar at age 19 and immediately fell in love with the instrument. He began by teaching himself songs by the Beatles, Bob Dylan and acoustic music of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Over the next several years, he played in various types of bands including folk, bluegrass, country and rock and roll. As he began to listen to swing and jazz, he developed more interest in songwriting, especially the music from the American Songbook by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and the Gershwins.


In recent years, Jimmy has fallen back in love with the blues and plays songs by many of the great blues legends such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton. From simple folk, to Beatles-influenced rock, delta blues, Motown-flavored R&B, country or Swing Jazz, his music reflects elements from all these styles of music. Jimmy now lives in St. Joseph Michigan where he performs at various venues throughout Southwest Michigan and the Michiana area.

Happy Together

2020 will mark the eleventh year of the highly-successful, hit-filled Happy Together Tour.  The touring sensation, which has criss-crossed the nation delighting audiences for a decade, returns with a show full of chart-topping hits from the 1960s and 1970s that include 59 Billboard Top 40 songs.  In addition to The Turtles, audiences can expect music from Chuck Negron, from Three Dog Night; The Association; Mark Lindsay, from Paul Revere & The Raiders; The Vogues; and The Cowsills.                                                

The Turtles are best known for their harmony-heavy California pop sound.  With hits such as “Elenore,” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “It Ain’t Me Babe,” “You Showed Me,” and the title of the tour, “Happy Together,” the band ruled the airwaves in the late 1960s.  Ron Dante joins the line-up to delight with his own mega-hit, “Sugar Sugar.”  

Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, returns to the tour for 2020 bringing with him his outstanding lead vocals on such global hits as “Joy To The World,” “One,” “Mama Told Me Not To Come,” “Black & White,” “Shambala,” “An Old Fashioned Love Song,” Easy To Be Hard,” “Eli’s Coming” and more.  Three Dog Night scored an impressive 21 Top 40 singles and twelve consecutive gold albums in the late 1960s and early 1970s.  

Also returning to the tour for 2020 is The Association, who enjoyed massive radio success in the ‘60s with such number one hits as “Cherish,” “Windy,” “Never My Love,” and “Along Comes Mary.”  This iconic vocal group was a staple on AM radio in the 1960s. 

Joining Happy Together for 2020 will be Mark Lindsay, former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders.  Lindsay and his high-kicking stage persona will be performing Raiders’ hits as well as solo gems such as “Kicks,” “Hungry,” “Good Thing,” “Arizona,” and “Indian Reservation.”  Lindsay’s songs appear in the Quentin Tarantino blockbuster “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.”

Brand new to the Happy Together touring family for 2020 are The Vogues.  Also known for their harmony-driven pop sound, The Vogues had numerous Top 10 hits with singles such as “Five O’Clock World,” “You’re The One,” “My Special Angel,” and “Turn Around Look At Me.”

Rounding out the bill are The Cowsills, the harmonious family act (two brothers and a sister) that inspired the smash hit ‘60s television show, “The Patridge Family.”  They are sure to delight with their best-known songs, “Hair,” “Indian Lake,” “The Rain, The Park & Other Things (I Love The Flower Girl),” and more.
