Jim Bacha - Bass - The Ninja Cowboys
Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, at age 16 I was a regular studio musician for WNCR - the premier rock radio station in Cleveland the early 70’s. At 18, I had moved to Toronto, Ontario, Canada, joining my brother David to find fortune and fame touring extensively as a power trio for 3 years. In the band “BACHA” we shared the stage and opened for multiple national acts. by age 22 I had moved back to Cleveland and for the next 10 years created several of Cleveland’s Most Unique Rock Bands; Clearlight and Masque, Throw Money, and Insanity and the Killers. Each band was quite unique in style and approach. It was Cleveland madness with swaggering street attitude. Afterwards I semi-retired doing the odd session work.
Out of the music business and working full time in Corporate America in 2002 I had a deep desire to reconnect with my musical roots and hooked up with Jerry Zsigo. We started an all original songwriting co-op BMZ (and later became BMZY) We focused on opening for national acts. 5 CD’s later we have opened for Pat Travers, Tracii Gunns, Donnie Iris and the Cruisers, Gilby Clark and Tim Bogert from Beck, Bogert, and Appice to name a few. I’m thrilled to be playing again and fortunate to be playing with this group of talented musicians.
