James Buckley Trio has been a band 5 years. We are primarily a jazz band that plays my original compositions. I play upright bass in this band, as well as write all the music. The other band members are JT Bates and Bryan Nichols. I started playing jazz with Bryan Nichols, the keyboardist 15 years ago. Around 11 years ago, I started playing with JT in several different groups, including bands at the clown lounge, located in St, Paul, MN.:::::::::
