Jim Briggs is a musician and singer/songwriter, most visible now as a member of the Irish band “Shades of Green”. He was a founding member of the 70s-80s One-Hit-Wonder tribute band “Wonderland” and a supporting player for the alt-rock band “The Nerve”.

  • Played in Franco Harris’ backing band.
  • Shared the stage at Philadelphia’s famed Tin Angel with Colin Hay (though not on the same night)
  • Once a warmup act for Barry Williams. (“I was there for a dog show, but I think it still counts!”)
