JIM MESSINA CONCERT CHRONOLOGY

Date last modified: December 8, 2016

1961-1964

A student at Colton High School near San Bernadino, Jim Messina puts together several bands. The Pendletons consist of Gary Walker on piano, Larry Walker on drums, David Archuleta on saxophone, and Wayne Wagoner, Steve Wagoner and Messina on guitars. In 1963, Messina disbands the group and puts together the Jesters. They are hired to record instrumental tracks for an album. After high school, Messina breaks up the Jesters and goes to work in a recording studio. That's where he's working when he begins working with the Buffalo Springfield in late 1967. Other members of the Jesters includes Bill Beckman and Ron House on guitars, Jim Sholstedt on bass, Dave Archuleta on saxophone, and Larry Cundieff on drums.

1974

The relentless pace forces the band off the road in the spring of 1974 for a much needed rest. They re-emerge late in the year with perhaps their best recorded effort, MOTHER LODE. Unfortunately, it does not contain a hit single and the band begins to lose steam.

1975

Confronted with an uncomfortable situation within the band, Al Garth departs. Vince Denham is his replacement on horns. Richard Greene of Seatrain joins on violin, Jack Lenz on keyboads, Steve Forman on percussion joins the touring band. Messina takes some time off to deal with personal problems leaving Loggins to rehearse the band and run the show. When Messina returns, Loggins decides to maintain control. The bloom is off the rose. They cut an album of oldies covers to mark time and it flops on the charts.

1976

With the band having essentially run its course, the duo decide to part company. They contact their management and line out a final album and supporting tour to say goodbye to their fans. They form a new touring group consisting of Clarke on horns, Denham on horns, Willy Ornelas on drums, Doug Livingston on keyboards, and George Hawkins on bass. During tour rehearsals, Loggins slices his wrist, cutting a tendon. He is unable to play guitar and they hire Woody Chrisman to play guitar instead.

1979

 

After a nearly three-year break, Messina returns to the stage to support his first solo album, OASIS. It is a disappointment and the tour never really gains much steam. Messina's backup band consists of Wayne Nelson (B), Jim Studer (K), Craig Thomas (H), Tony Moreno (D), Jeff Elliot (Trumpet), Ron Green (perc). Before the year is up, Wayne Nelson leaves for the Little River Band.

Messina puts together a small band of Craig Staul on guitar and Bruce Atkinson on bass and hits the road often with Randy Meisner's group to do club dates. Messina does not have an album to promote but his increased profile due to the Poco reunion garners enough promoter interest to manage a small tour.
