Jimothy is a multi-genre band based around the solo work of singer and guitarist Jim Bohon based in the New River Valley region of Virginia. Jim is a multi-instrumentalist, and performed all instrumentation and vocals on the band's debut album "Never In A Million Years," before fleshing out a full band when the album proved to be popular among local audiences. Jimothy love what they do, and it shines through in their performance, no matter the event or venue.

He continued formal lessons through high school, at which time he studied Jazz Theory & Ensemble for college credit under Michael Carenbauer (who studied under Pat Metheny at Berklee) at the University of AR Little Rock. During junior high Brian learned drums and bass, and has continued developing them professionally along side the guitar.

While completing a bachelor’s degree in Recording Industry at Middle TN State University, Mesko lived in the Nashville area from 1997 – 2005 and played with such international jazz greats as Les McCann, Tony Monaco, Dr. Lonnie Smith, John Jorgensen and Jeff Coffin. He also worked with Roland Gresham, Sam Brooker, Greg Bryant, Chris West, Moe Denham, Nioshi Jackson, Charles Treadway and many more.
