Described simply, James
Dangerous & the CIA
a psychedelic hillbilly blues band. More accurately, the CIA are a community of professionals; shows have anywhere between
three to nine performers at a time, and this flexibility makes every show unique.
Founded in 2007 as a studio project, the CIA has naturally developed
into a proficient live band. Whether performing their considerable repertoire of original songs or leading audiences in hopped-up,
foot-stompin’, singable cover tunes, JD & CIA always deliver exciting, raucous entertainment.
