James the Violin Player is a citizen of Halloween Town, and a member of the town band. He plays the violin. In the beginning of the movie he tells Jack, "Nice work, bone-daddy", complementing him on another successful Halloween. He also tells the Mayor that Jack hasn't been home all night after he unsuccessfully tries to rouse Jack from his house. During Making Christmas, the Harlequin Demon uses him as a mannequein to make a rat into a hat. He is voiced in the movie by Greg Proops.
