Hot guitarist and found member of the Nighthawks Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers will descend on the Fat Fish Pub this Thursday. Tickets are $25 at the door (opens at 4pm) and the show starts at 6pm.
Thackery comes by his six-string brilliance honestly, having learned from the very best sources. Besides Buddy Guy and Jimi Hendrix, Thackery cites Chicago axe master Otis Rush as a primary influence. Moreover, he learned quite a bit from playing on stage alongside such blues legends as Muddy Waters, James Cotton and Luther “Guitar Junior” Johnson.
Thackery has been acclaimed as one of the hottest live acts around, with his jaw-dropping performances becoming the stuff of legend. As the Boston Globe put it, “Jimmy Thackery is a four-hour performer. That’s not how long he plays, but how long one should travel to see him. He’s a phenomenal guitarist, one of the best we’ve seen.”
