I was surprised to find that no-one had already posted anything about this fantastic
artist. Check out the link below for bio etc.

Jackie plays every Tuesday (re-commencing 13/1/04) at the Rose of Australia at
Erskineville (cnr George and Swanson Sts Erskineville Ph 9565 1441). He usually kicks off
around 8:30pm and winds up a bit after 11pm and it's always free!

Jackie's core band obviously includes himself (piccolo bass, vocals), Dave Symes (bass)
and Hamish Stuart (drums). But every Tuesday there are rarely less than 8 performers (the
most I've seen is 14) including respected musos like Scott Leishman (guitar), James
Greening (trombone), Clayton Doley (Hammond organ), Matt Ottignon (sax), John Stuart
(conga drums), Arne Hanna (guitar) plus vocalists Tina Harrod and Jade Macrae. Other
regular special guests include Lachlan Doley (Hohner clavinet), Anthony Kable (trombone),
and Rebecca Jensen and Mahalia Barnes (vocals).

The music encompasses many influences. Funk, soul, acid jazz, swing, R&B and even reggae,
all with Jackie's brilliant interpretation and arrangement.

I strongly recommend to anyone that they check out this unique gig. You'll come away
stuffed full of the best soul food in town!

Email me for more details, help with directions or heads up on other gigs.

There was a weekly listing for this which was temporarely removed because they often take
a break for a couple of weeks around late December/early January.
(so I wasn't sure if it was on during that period)

..but now I know its on again from this week onwards!

I've been there quite a few times and its usually a good funky night with a friendly
crowd... - highly recommended!

Newsflash! Jackie's near 7 year residency at The Rose will shortly be over. The next 2
weeks, he's playing there as per usual but after that, the weekly gig will be moved to the
recently re-opened Newtown RSL, Enmore Rd Newtown - STILL FREE!! C u there.
