Jim Kimsey debuted his country&western persona, "Verlin Jack," at a Memorial Day party this afternoon on the terrace of his Pennsylvania Avenue office. Ronan Farrow, son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, was among the guests. He and Jim go way back through Refugees International. Also there were all of Kimsey's lunch buddies, who joined him for a round of "Amore." That was the only song in his repertoire absent a country twang. Here's the full Jim Kimsey story at washingtonian.com.
His band, "The Hired Assasins," provided expert back-up. Guests ate barbecued ribs and chicken, sipped sangria, and tapped and clapped along to the music.
