As a member of Footloose from 1990 to the present, Jim has played 100's of contra dances throughout North Carolina and the United States. Contra Dance refers to "a folk dance, similar to a square dance, except instead of the square formation, it is danced in lines of couples, with every other couple facing up or down the hall". Footloose is primarily a contra dance band with varied musical selections deigned to propel the dance forward. Adding drums was a relatively new concept in 1990 and has grown to mass acceptance over the years. Trip to the Moon is the band in a studio setting playing sets often used in contra dancing. It was recorded in Jim's Kalimba Studio in Nashville and released in 2005.
