Jim Ehinger

BMHOF Class of 2007

After leaving Buffalo to find his fame and fortune in L.A., Jim Ehinger was the keyboardist of choice to play on albums and/or tours with musical greats such as Coco Montoya, Maria Muldaur, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, Taj Mahal, George Harrison, Steven Stills and Bob Weir. His rendition of "Rhapsody in Blue" opened the 1984 Olympics in LA and he served as Dennis Quaid's piano coach for the movie "Great Balls of Fire."

His performance on "At This Moment" with Billy Vera and the Beaters helped propel the tune to be a million selling number one record.

Ten more years in NYC saw Jim serve as musical director  for B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill and for the Mayer Theater in addition to his playing with other greats.

Jim now can be heard playing in local clubs in the WNY area along with our top blues or R&B talent.
