My name is Jim Nonneman.  I'm a professional drummer based in the Chicago area, recording and performing for more than three decades. 


I collaborate with producers, engineers, songwriters, and fellow musicians to help bring groove, pocket and real feel drums to their musical creations.  I can record on location at your studio, or can work remotely and cost-effectively submitting tracks from my home studio. My studio is outfitted with quality gear, Universal Audio interfaces and a great selection of mics for optimal sound.  Contact me for more information.


I'm available for local live performances and tours.  Over the years, I've worked with a wide variety of artists and bands in genres including country, rock, pop, R&B, funk, soul and blues, on stages from clubs to concert venues, festival stages to showrooms, conference centers, casinos, churches and theaters.

Recent Experience

From 2015-2020 I was the band leader, musical director and drummer for Dixie Crush (Modern Country) performing more than 250 shows on the best stages around the Midwest.
