Described simply, James Dangerous & the CIA
are 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.
