The San Francisco Chronicle recently described Jackie Greene as the reigning prince, wandering minstrel, and cowboy poet of Americana blues rock. Those accolades were hard-earned over a decade of life spent touring tirelessly and resulting in a justified reputation as a musician's musician and road warrior. Jackie spent two years as lead guitarist for the Black Crowes and sits in often with the likes of Gov’t Mule and Tedeschi Trucks Band, and toured nationally with BB King, Mark Knopfler, Buddy Guy, and many other legends. He’s appeared at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam, and formed the supergroup Trigger Hippy with Joan Osborne and the Crowes Steve Gorman. This past year, Greene took a much-needed rest from the relentless touring circuit to begin a new chapter in his life and focus on marriage, fatherhood, and a cross-country move from NYC back to his NorCal hometown roots. During that hiatus he recorded two EPs, The Modern Lives – Vol 1 and the soon to be released Vol 2.
Now, Jackie returns to the concert stage with a dynamic new band and eye-popping visual production inspired by the award winning animated short film that was created for the songs from The Modern Lives Vol 1 by "king of indie animation" Bill Plympton. The two-hour concert will feature a generous selection of the bluesy rock songs from the new EPs and a hefty helping of fan favorites. And, as with all Jackie Greene shows, you can expect some musical surprises!
