Jimmy Hall (born April 26, 1949) is the lead singer and harmonica player for the Southern rock group, Wet Willie.

Hall was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and reared in Mobile, Alabama. He first gained notoriety in 1970 as the lead vocalist, saxophonist and harmonica player for Wet Willie.

Wet Willie released five albums with Capricorn Records before moving to the Epic label in 1977, where its singles “Street Corner Serenade” and “Weekend” charted in the Top 40.[2]

In 1980, Hall scored a solo hit with the single "I'm Happy that Love Has Found You" (No. 27). In May 1982, Hall peaked at No. 77 with the song "Fool For Your Love."

In 1985, he sang lead vocals on Jeff Beck's album Flash and was nominated for a Grammy award for the performance. Hall has also toured with Hank Williams Jr., playing saxophone and harmonica.
