Hi, my name is Jim Dillehay and I am the originator and designer of this website. I have a degree in Music Education and I taught public high school music in Phoenix, Arizona. I have also had my own Entertainment and Production company, here in Southern California for over 35 years. I have performed at over 2,000 events as a DJ/MC, Musician, and Event Photographer. When I entertain, I enjoy using my teaching background in music, to connect with people, and discover the “hidden talent” in the audience.
I am also an “idea guy” who loves taking an idea and building a website around the concept. Here is one of our first Jam events at Lestat’s Coffee House in Normal Heights, San Diego. Back then, I called the session a “JamInTheMix”. It will give you an idea of how a JamForPeace works in a live situation.
Here’s a YouTube demo that features myself as a DJ/MC/Musician in live situations. I used this video to feature two sites: FamilyProductions.org and JamInTheMix.com.
You can also check out other sites I have produced that will give you more info on my mindset and priorities. Some people would say that I am maybe “too political” but I would rather frame myself as a person who enjoys talking to folks who don’t think like me.
I met my beautiful wife in Tijuana Mexico and I now live there and work in San Diego. I am very proud that I was able to purchase a 5 letter .com for only $11.17. Companies can pay tens of thousands of dollars just to purchase a relevant 5 letter .com.
