My name is James Rice (my friends call me Jim). I’ve lived in Elyria , Ohio since 2002. I have been involved in music since I was 6, when I started playing guitar. At that age through High School I played in varying venues such as a local country music jamboree in the Wheeling Wva area and High school variety shows and also local shows in the Ohio Valley. When my dad became a minister in the early 70s, my Mom and Dad and I sang in churches known as The Upper Room Singers. After graduation in 1977, I started a Contemporary Christian Band that was together for about a year. Because of college commitments by the other members, we split up. In the 80s I started playing occasionally in a club in Canton, Ohio playing country & classic rock. It was there that the band gave me the name Montgomery Jim (at the time I also worked for Montgomery Ward). I did this til 2002. In 2008, I decided to go in another direction. I started Montgomery Jim’s DJ service on the advice of many of my friends because of my knowledge of the music industry.
