My name is Jim Carter
Recording artist Jim Carter's version of the rock classic "Walking In Memphis" (from his CD "Daydreamer") is #2 on, New Zealand record company, Tree Record's top sales chart
I am a singer/piano player with a background as a musical tribute artist, studio musician, lead and background band vocalist and dueling piano player. I am also a signed recording artist with Tree Records/Escape Label and a seasoned character and voice-over actor.
I have performed as "Ron" in a national touring company of the 1968 Broadway musical "Hair", as well as at many noted entertainment icons such as Radio City Music Hall (New York, NY), Walt Disney World (Lake Buena Vista, FL), Universal/Orlando Resort (Orlando, FL), New York New York Casino and Resort (Las Vegas, NV), legendary riverboat Delta Queen (New Orleans, LA), U.S.O. Shows (Djibouti/Ethiopia, Africa) and multiple other performances in Canada, Europe, the Middle East and, of course, the United States.
I have worked with such name artists as Ben Vereen (Roots, Pippin), Michael Winslow (Police Academy, Spaceballs), Helen Reddy (Disney's Pete's Dragon), Jose Feliciano, Peabo Bryson, The Drifters, The Platters, The Coasters, Walter Cronkite (Legendary World News Reporter), David Faustino (Bud from "Married With Children") and The Radio City "Rockettes".
I have a very entertaining tribute show named "FATS". "FATS" is a "Mardi Gras" style stage show based on the music of 1950 & 60's "Rock & Roll Hall of Fame" legend Fats Domino.
Antoine "Fats" Domino came out of New Orleans in the 1950's with a rockin' "boogie woogie" piano style and a warm, easy going voice to become one of rock and roll's earliest and greatest stars. Now join me, Jim Carter, as I relive those happy days when you "found you're thrill on Blueberry Hill"!
"FATS" is the "only" Fats Domino Tribute Show in the United States!
I gained my appreciation for Fats and "the Big Easy" while performing on the legendary riverboat, the Delta Queen, along with the Mississippi Queen and the American Queen riverboats, which docked in New Orleans. I fell in love with the laid back atmosphere, the great food and the incredible “party” music. After hurricane Katrina, the thought of loosing those sights and sounds sadden me. So I created this show in order to preserve the music and attitude of the "Big Easy" and one of it's musical favorite sons!
My second show is "Rockin" Santa" a Christmas themed Rock & Roll show starring a piano playing, vocal wailing version of "Old St Nick"! While the show can and has been performed for kids, this show is more for Mom and Dad to enjoy.
