Try to remember to breathe as you listen to one of the most explosive blues guitarists in the history of the blues. Whether Jimmy Thackery is ripping his way through a twangy, minor key instrumental reminiscent of surf music or a spy movie theme song, slowing down to show us the variety of flavors available when you simmer slow and low, or covering Jimi Hendrix so authentically that you might swear Jimi came down for one more show, Thackery’s guitar virtuosity will be sure to leave you hanging on every note. Since leaving the Nighthawks in 1987, Thackery has grown into one of the most respected guitar players on the blues scene, and is often found headlining blues festivals all over the United States.
