Founding Member – Guitar
Jackson has played music since he was a child. He studied saxophone vigorously for a few years playing alto and bari sax in all the school bands. Taking a break from the sax during the ‘80s, Jackson got into electronic music and synthesis, inspired by krautrock, European electronic music, and new wave synth bands.
Skip forward to the early 90s when Jackson had discovered rock-n-roll and the electric guitar. After deeply immersing himself in guitar, learning everything he could on his own, he eventually began touring full-time with an all original eclectic jam band. playing sax and guitar, among other odd instruments. He counts these years as “paying his dues” on the hard road.
For some years, Jackson focused almost exclusively on gypsy jazz. He has been a founding member of three other gypsy jazz projects in addition to Sacrebleu! He plays a ’petit bouche’ (small hole) gypsy style guitar and has been known to dust off his horn on rare occasion, as well.
Jackson also creates a variety of music from EDM to funk as a solo producer. Check out his music on SoundCloud!
