Jim Schaper has been in the central Ohio area for three years. Coming from thirty six years of Chicago's music scene.    

 Jim brings a full band sound without taking up much space. He can fill a hall with sound or fit easily into a living room. Bringing live music to birthday, retirement, anniversary, let’s have a fire in the back yard, It’s Saturday, or just about any kind of party. Playing for the love of the music he plays guitar or banjo while singing songs from multiple genres mixing it up with blues, bluegrass, rock, country, or folk. 

Jim is a Viet Nam vet with twelve years of active duty in the US Navy. While serving as a gunner aboard Navy Destroyers much of his free time at sea was spent entertaining the crew. Jim often weaves some of his sea stories into his performances.
