Jimmy Thackery & The Drivers in Concert
Whether Jimmy Thackery headlines a festival or jams in one of the blues bars that dot the musical landscape, he'll always unleash an intense volley of rockin' blues guitar guaranteed to leave crowds emotionally spent.
It was Thackery's time on stage with Muddy Waters that is branded deep within his musical soul. He's one of the few blues guitarists who learned first hand from the masters of the blues, not off a record or DVD.
Though most associate Jimmy with his 15 years as the co-founder of the Nighthawks, he ended his time with them in 1987. Since then, Jimmy has been on the road touring, currently with his trio, The Drivers, proving each night that he is still the guitar powerhouse in the blues.
