After a long illness, which somehow didn't keep "The Voice" of the Dallas Banjo Band from still performing at gigs, Jim Lawrence left us to reunite with the those of the Band alumni who also now perform in the celestial version of the Band. No doubt the angels and other residents of heaven are stomping their feet to their happy banjo sounds.
With his wife, Carol, helping Jim to get to his last gigs with us, he still could belt out a vocal like no one before or after him.
Jim was a true musician and entertainer, being adept at several instruments besides the banjo; and he played in many of the area's bands, including his own Dixieland group.
We and his fans will miss him !!
There will be a Band Tribute to Jim on Saturday April 6, 2019 at 2:00 TO 4:00PM at the:
