      Big George Jackson Blues Band - Free Music Wednesdays
    • Description
      Vocalist/harmonica player Big George Jackson is known as the “authentic big man of the blues”. He sings with a distinctive bass-rich voice, only a six-foot  six inch gentle giant could be blessed with. Add his fat harmonica playing, dead-on phrasing, commanding stage-presence and instant audience rapport and it’s easy to understand why the audience howls when he delivers his music.
