The Tacoma Files: James Jenkins

MEET JAMES JENKINS >>>

James Jenkins was born in Saint Joseph's Hospital on June 22, 1985.   

He has been playing with local band Mama Loves Daddy for longer than you have been alive. 

James is responsible for the phenomenon known among the seedy rock underbelly of Tacoma as "The Gloom House."   Aptly named, this party pit is the after hours destination of nearly every indie show I've attended at the world famous Bob's Java Jive. A smoky den of wild psychedelic chaos, the record player counts off the hours till dawn, and in the filth a shining flame of rock burns its way into another dimension.  I look to James as the godfather of this decade's Tacoma rock.  No other single source has offered more to the scene than James' quiet whiskey smile. 

Owning the largest and most docile cat in the universe is only part of the magic that makes this man who he is to this counter culture. 

A staple at the old Monday night dinners and in certain moments channeling the long dead soul of Jim Morrison, Jenkins is the epitome of what it means to be Tacoma.
