Jim Seargeant and Don Blumenshien at the Rock Inn

If you are a music lover, then the melodic, dynamic, and talented duo of Don and Jim are a treat to listen to ! They have been playing together for 30 years now and have a real “connection” to their music. Jim and Don first met way back in 1971, attending the same high school here in the Antelope Valley. They started playing seriously together in 1980. Since then, they have played on numerous occasions in numerous places ! This includes the Lancaster Performing Arts Center, and just about every public venue ( The Rock Inn, Cedar Art Center, Lakes and Valleys Art Guild and many more) here in the Antelope Valley and beyond.These artists have played at many private functions as well.

They have a CD out called The Goods but unfortunately is sold out . It has all original material and they have so many more new compositions, Don and Jim hope to put out another CD soon. Jim’s earlier influences are Paul Simon, James Taylor and of course, the great Eric Clapton. Which leads us into other types of music these great musicians, Jim and Don play. When Jim was asked which type of guitar do you like best, “electric or acoustic ?”, he thought about it and honestly said he loves both ! He had a blues band for a while that was absolutely great. In addition to the blues, Jim plays literally all types of music. Don, like any great musician, loves all music too. He has been lately really enjoying playing Spanish guitar, not to be confused with flamenco guitar. It’s all in the fingering and Don has the talent to do it all ! If you have an opportunity to hear these two together, apart, or with other musicians, be sure not to miss it !
