Jackson and the King Kickers

If you want a fun night out you can’t go wrong with Jackson and Big Jim. They headlined at the Green Door Store on Friday night and once again had the audience dancing with their lively mix of soul, rockabilly, r’n’b and swing.

Jackson is a really dynamic front person with a great voice and she pulls some great moves. Big Jim on the accordion and occasional lead vocals adds some variety. They have a good range of songs and tight rhythm and horn sections that provide a lively celebratory feel. When they launch into their cover of the Waterboys’ Fisherman’s Blues the whole joint started jumping. 

This is a band well worth catching. They have an album ready to roll, so hopefully we’ll see that soon. Their next outing is at The Brunswick in Hove on 8th April
