I don’t know much about golf, but I know a little secret about the new album. We are so close….. like real close. The first batch of masters came in last night, and it won’t be long before we have a wrap on this thing. Listening parties and a CD release show will be scheduled very soon so keep a look out. Thanks to everyone who came out for the Saturday Earth Jam! You know you are at a cool show when nature provides the lighting (or is it lightning) effects. You are some truly brave souls! Alright, I’m out but not for long.
So NPR has this cool contest going on called the Tiny Desk Contest. Basically you record a video of a live performance of an original song, and somehow incorporate a desk into it. It’s pretty interesting and there are some really great entries on their site- http://tinydeskcontest.npr.org/open/ . I decided to make a quick video of Blindspot with none other than my youngest daughter Eden playing the role of well… herself. I told her to pretend that she was completely disinterested in what I was doing, and she played the part really well…. maybe too well? Check it out!
Hey everyone! I hope your year is off to a great start! So it totally looks like there hasn’t been a lot going on with the band or the website, but this could not be further from the truth. 2016 was a busy ‘behind the scenes’ year for the band, but we did manage to squeeze in a couple of private performances. The year started out with a lineup change- Brian Bankston has taken over on guitar, and we went back and re-worked most of the tunes. We finally made it out to FAME studios and cut all the tracks for the new album, and we hope to have that out very soon so keep an eye out for it. We definitely need everyone’s help in promoting this thing when it’s all done, and we will have some great give-away’s to offer our faithful fans! Love you guys, be good to each other and Happy 2017- let’s make it the best year yet!
We have added a new show- mark your calendars for June 28th! We will be opening for The Shane Givens Band at the Liberty Day Festival in Cedar Bluff, AL. Hope to see you there! It’s a great family event with lots of good music, food and fun.
We will also be working on a new EP very soon so keep checking back for updates on that. There may very well be a free mp3 download available- you never know…….
Thanks for everyone’s continued support and we will see you on stage soon!
Until then- check out this live performance of ‘Cover Me Up’ by Jason Isbell
Everybody mark your calendars for April 5th! The Jeremy Jackson Band will be performing at the Rainbow City Chocolate Festival in Rainbow City, AL. We’ll be going on at 3:30! Also, we have added several new songs to the set. This is a great outdoor event for the whole family so make plans to be there!
The Jeremy Jackson Band will perform as a part of the Music Center Concert Series on Thursday, October 24th. The 7 PM concert will be the second on the series, which is presented at The Music Center at Temple Beth Israel at 761 Chestnut Street in downtown Gadsden.

After our show at Riverfest was canceled due to rain I went up to the beer garden and played an unplugged set. Seriously, there was no pa system and about 200 people. Thanks to Brandon Murray for catching this on video! Also, I’m pretty sure that was the third string I broke.
Well, Riverfest 2013 didn’t turn out like we had hoped due to the weather, but we are confirmed for Riverfest 2014. I did get the opportunity to go up to the Riverfest Pub and perform and acoustic set for an amazing crowd of around 200 huddled under the beer tent. They were extremely receptive and I was overwhelmed with the response. Another bright side- we ended up hanging out with Corey Smith and his band at Blackstone Pub and Eatery later that night. Travis Posey was kind enough to let me play a few and then Corey Smith and his band got up and played a few also. All in all I think the evening was salvaged as much as possible. Here are a few snapshots from the day. Thanks to Chael Barber for the video of the soundcheck!
