The IanJames Band (IJB) is not your typical “Local Band”. While holding true to their roots in Portland, OR, IJB is destined for the National Stage. the musical love child of Michael Jackson & James Taylor, who was then raised by Stevie Wonder. These four individuals (IanJames - Vocals/Acoustic Guitar | Johnnie “JB StarPower” Ballard - Drums | Patrick - Bass | Matthew “Matches” Hayes - Key/Piano) have come together to create a band that is not your typical “Local-Portland” band. “To have the opportunity for someone out there time to enjoy their favorite song, whether an original or cover and forget about their hectic day...that is what it’s all about”, says lead singer IanJames. IJB believes in a simple musical philosophy. Great music performed by great musicians with great people equals a GREAT time! Having over 25+ combined years of performing on stages these four gentlemen have had opportunities to perform alongside National Acts like Gavin DeGraw, Andy Grammer & more. IJB has a proven track record that they can not only hang with National Acts, but are on their own path to becoming one themselves!
