Why You Should Go: It isn’t often that a 21 year-old stops a room cold with a soulfully mature voice that calls to mind a young Tom Waits or Otis Redding. But, that is exactly what happened when Jackie Greene took the stage at an open mic in Sacramento in the fall of 2001. At that point Greene had been gigging in bars and selling records out of his trunk for the better part of five years. Things took a turn for him when DIG Music owner Marty DeAnda heard him that night that night in Sacremento, signed him within days and gave the youngster the chance to get his music out to a much broader audience.
Since DeAnda took a chance on him, Greene has put out three acclaimed albums and electrified audiences all over the country. His blues soaked style of rock and his electric stage presence often steals the show as the opening act for established performers such as B.B. King, Taj Mahal and Susan Tedeschi.
Don’t miss your opportunity to catch this fantastic performer in the intimate confines of The Bluebird Theater on Sunday night.
Stay tuned for a full length feature on Greene to be posted later in the week.
