"Tennis serves as a sport and a source of entertainment for many fans, but for James Limborg it's a musical muse. The 34-year-old Roseville, Minnesota musician, a self-described "Eddie Van Halen-style rock guitarist" and a 3.5 rated tennis player, has written and recorded his tribute to tennis: "Red, White and Green." read full story...

"Wow... Your music seems to have an udercurrent of eclectic homogenization. Perhaps to the point of being totally original. What I'm saying here is so frequently, artists end up giving us music in which we think, at least on some level, that we have been there, done that. When done right, of course, such close following of formats makes for highly acceptable music. When done wrong, we scream, "...this is derivative." What you have here is something that does manage to touch a universal chord, is recognizable to our experiential patterns, and yet does not lend itself to be easily quantifiable. Thus, your music is both accessible, in that we feel we understand it, and yet totally new and different. I'll come right out and say it: The last time I was struck like this was a decade and a half ago, when I first heard a Malmsteen tape. I am startled that you are unsigned! How to improve? Just keep at it and allow your music to deepen with age, as the great artists do."

"Hello Jim - how cool... I sent your song titled Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to the owners of Eagle! Eagle is a family company and a great dog food. I simply answer their emails for them and am friends of the family. Our family has Cavies as well... they are great dogs and because of Eagle, they have great coats!"

"Hi James, The USTA/Northern Section Office received a copy of Red, White and Green last spring and liked it very much. We were hoping for the right occasion to play it, but now have kind of a different request: Do you perform, may an hour's worth of music in a banquet setting? We could pay some, but not a lot, as we're a non-profit. We have an annual workshop (link in my signature) that includes an awards banquet and are hoping to have a bit of musical entertainment at the banquet. The date of the banquet is Saturday, November 5th. Please let me know if you would be interested in chatting about this. You can either call or e-mail. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Nancy"

"YYYYYYYYYEEEEAAAAAHHHHHH... The intro to your song titled, "I NEED YOU SO MUCH" hits us like a freight train carrying Satriani, Vai, Eric Johnson, and Stu Hamm. I wish the drums were real but pretty soon I don't mind. Great harmonies. I like the breaks where you think the song's over but then it keeps going. The chipmunk vocals are cool. This song is WAY OVER THE TOP which is the only place music can survive."

"The first thing I can offer is to put you on my show, A/C Outlet, which airs on St. Paul cable, but will be distributed later this summer on DVD. I am also planning a compilation release of 12-15 musicians for July. I will start with 1000 copies and distribute to radio stations and record labels. I have an idea for your tennis song titled Red, White and Green. Let's shoot a video of you performing the song and splice it in with tennis footage. I can shoot and edit it and we'll present it to the USTA and see if they want to pick it up."
