Jim Kelleher was instrumental in bringing the Dixie Diehards together as a functioning Dixieland Jazz Band. Jim’s knowledge of music coupled with his extensive background as a teacher, made him a natural for our first music director.
Jim’s biggest fan, his wife Ellie.
Final Gig – July 2010
Jim’s last performance with the Dixie Diehards was fittingly on July 4, 2010 Berkeley, MA at their Annual Town 4th of July Celebration. Jim & Ellie have retired to Maryland to be closer to their grand children.
