Jim Malatchi is the founder of the Nostalgia Music Group.
His love of music started in Jr. High when he was dancing to the music of Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Fleetwood’s and the rest of the gang blasting away from a juke box at the local soda fountain. He started learning to play the guitar in the early 60’s and was attracted to the guitar stylings of Joan Baez and the influences of Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Croce, Ian Tyson and similar artists. Jim’s vocals are deep, smooth and expressive and he plays the 6 and 12 string guitars with style and finesse.
Wendy Ann's extraordinary vocal talent is immediately evident as soon as she starts to sing. Wendy’s musical first-love is in modern country; however, she also loves to perform other types of music including pop and folk. Wendy has entered a number of country music contests and has won many titles including Female Vocalist of the Year at the Nebraska Country Music Festival in both 1996 and 1997. Wendy is an extraordinary talent.
