Jimmy Thackery

Doors 4pm, Music 8:30pm

Blues guitarist JIMMY THACKERY & THE DRIVERS! Jimmy Thackery is one of the few blues guitarists who learned firsthand from the masters of the blues, not off a blues record or dvd. Though most associate Jimmy with his 15 years as the co-founder of the Nighthawks, he ended his time with them in 1987. Since then, Jimmy has been on the road as a solo musician for 15 years doing nearly 300 shows a year proving each night that he is still the guitar powerhouse in the blues.

Thackery has lived the life of a true road warrior; he’s absorbed the artistic lessons of life and filtered them into his guitar playing and songwriting. To get where he is today, Jimmy has journeyed a highway of life filled with a series of twists and turns. He met all the right people and they have had a permanent influence on him.
