Singer, songwriter, & guitar virtuoso Jimmy Thackery carved an enviable niche for himself in the world of electric blues, known for his gritty, blue-collar approach & marathon live shows,
Thackery co-founded & spent 14 years as part of The Nighthawks, one of the hardest-working blues bar bands in North America. Touring under his own name since 1987, he found widespread acceptance on the festival circuit. His hard-edged, tough-as-nails approach to guitar playing and his trio's driving rhythm section holds appeal for fans of Muddy Waters, Bruce Springsteen and Joe Grushecky.
Jimmy Thackery & the Assassins split up in 1991. Jimmy Thackery & The Drivers, quickly forged a name on the blues festival and club circuit through prolific recording and roadwork.
His 1998 album, SWITCHING GEARS, includes guest performances by Joe Louis Walker, Lonnie Brooks, Chubby Carrier, and Francine Reed, but any of Thackery's albums will delight fans of tough, heavy, driving guitar playing. The FALCON
