Under New Management

Alright, now everybody listen up! There’s a new sheriff in town and that is me, Arty “Tex” Donkerman! I had to pull a few strings to get Jimmie and the boys out of the hoosegow and it better not be for nuthin’! In a turn of events that can only be described as ironic, Jimmie Ray Swagger and the Fussy Eaters will be playing The Cave on April 20th as part of the court settlement I negotiated. Come on out and I promise you an evening to remember!


Hoo Boy! You all are probably wondering why you ain’t heard from Jimmie Ray and the Boys in while. Truth is we were headed down to Mussel Sholes to do some recording and we had a little run in with the law for reasons we’d rather not disclose.

Not to worry, we’ll be out in just a wee bit.

Carrborro Has Been Swaggerized!

Hoo Boy! We sure did have us a time Swaggerizin’ the Carrborro Music Festival. Either you were there or you shoulda been!

The eagle-eyed among y’all may have noticed a new addition to the Swagger family – we now have a mandolin player: Cody Caliente! Congratulate him next time you see him!

The Fans Love Us!

We can’t help but notice that the fans just can not get enough Jimmie Ray Swagger and the Fussy Eaters in their lives. Some even go so far as to post unauthorized live videos taken on videocameras hidden up inside their phones! Such as this one:


Suppose that’s just life as a living legend.

We Done Tapped that City!

Hoooo Boy! We just got done giving the fine folks at Pittsboro’s City Tap the time of their lives – you were there or you shoulda been!

Kinko De Mayo is almost here!

Hoooo Boy! It’s almost time for Kinko de Mayo, that traditional yearly celebration of fetishes and mayonnaise. If I had my druthers it’d be fetishes and Bar-B-Q, but tradition is tradition.

This year Kinko de Mayo falls on the fifth of May. We’re gonna be celebrating at the 2nd Wind in Carrboro, North Carolina. Figure on us gettin’ goin’ about 10:00pm.

Fetch me my ball gag!

Album Update

Even though we’re touring hard as always just like the true road warriors we are, we’ve found the time to record a whole new album of greatest hits! We’ll let you all take a listen when it’s ready, till then we’re gonna keep on keepin’ on!
