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.
Barbara Henry is the newest member of the Nostalgia Music Group. She is a very gifted vocalist and performer. When she starts singing, you can't help but to take notice. Barbara's singing career began in 1987 in a local choir, Last Note Singers, which led to a several years in an acapella group called Penn Street. When this group disbanded, three members formed a band called Cottonwood. Together they cut two successful albums and performed frequently all over the Denver area. In 2005, she joined with pianist and vocalist Mark Reinhardt and has been singing cabaret shows in the Denver area.
