About Jim Tucke

As a youngster, Columbus, Ohio native, src="/Pine_Island_News_Blog/sites/default/files/PIN/image/jim-as-lennon.thumbnail.jpg" style="width: 150px; height: 150px; margin: 7px;" vspace="8" /> Jim Tucke banged on his mother's pots and pans without mercy for the cookware or his family's ears. Finally, his mother gave in and bought her son a drum set and a drummer was born. Now he sings most styles of music and combines drums and piano simultaneously in a solo act around Naples, Fort Myers, and Sanibel. Tucke is no stranger to Lovgrove Gallery & Gardens, having previously entertained President Jimmy Carter and his extended family while on a visit to Matlacha.
