Jimmy Thackery at The State Theatre

Jimmy Thackery & The Drivers

Genre: Electric Blues

Singer, songwriter and guitar virtuoso Jimmy Thackery has carved an enviable niche for himself in the world of electric blues. Known for his gritty, blue-collar approach and marathon live shows, Thackery was for many years part of the Nighthawks, one of the hardest-working blues bar bands in North America; since the late 1980s, he has been touring and recording under his own name, first with the Assassins and now with the Drivers. His hard-edged, tough-as-nails approach to guitar playing and his trio’s driving rhythm section holds appeal for fans of both the straight-ahead blues of Muddy Waters and the roots-rock of Bruce Springsteen and Joe Grushecky.
