Jimmy Dangler

Information provided by Janet Carney:


Jimmy Dangler moved up to Southern Humboldt in his early twenties, eventually moving to Garberville when he opened the music store Singing Salmon. Jimmy recorded and produced local artists and also had a sound reinforcement company called Mateel Sound and provided sound and engineering for local gigs for many years along with Reggae on the River, Summer Arts Festival and many more. Jimmy is probably best known as a founding member, along with many others, of Reggae on the River - he worked Reggae for 22 years.


Even though Jimmy moved out of Southern Humboldt, he remained connected with it through his store, sound gigs, and Reggae. He was a member of the Mateel Board for many years. He loved the community and was loved in return. He was known for his outstanding quick wit and humor. Jimmy loved his wife Barbara, golf and music.
