In January, we did a show called "The Fathers of Rock" where we covered Elvis, Chuck Berry, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and other founders of the genre from the 50's and 60's - NOW we are following up with this tribute to perhaps the greatest decade of all time in the realm of real analog music!
This show will cover rock, country, country-rock, southern-rock, folk-rock - and a bunch of other hyphenated sub-genres!
I'm so excited to be a part of this show! I will be performing along with dozens of other artists as we all "pledge allegiance to the Hag" IF YOU LOVE HAGGARD, DON'T MISS THIS SHOW! (click the pic for tix)
Rusty Jackson, Ben Vogel, Mel Dalton and Miller's Sun will bring a night of their original music combined with the music that influenced them! Country, Rock, Folk, Motown and Pop music! Hear some of the stories behind the songs as these writers pour out their hearts!
If you've seen the tribute shows at Lake City, you've seen a lot of the artists that influenced Rusty but there will be a few surprises!
Miller's son, Mel Dalton and Ben Vogel will also be bringing music from their influences plus their amazing original music too! This will be a great night of entertainment with great human interest as well!
THIS IS GOING TO BE AN INCREDIBLE SHOW! I'm country thru and thru - my influences are Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Marty Robbins... but the truth is that I was also heavily influenced by the popular music that was everywhere in the 60's - the icons of rock and roll - and so I'm really excited about being a part of this show! We have some great musicians on this one too!
RUSTY JACKSON'S WHITE CHRISTMAS IS A NIGHT OF MUSICAL COMEDY THAT WILL TOUCH YOUR HEART AND MAKE YOU LAUGH OUT LOUD! MEMORIES, MUSIC AND MERRIMENT ALL COME TOGETHER IN THIS LATEST CREATION FROM RUSTY!
One of the greatest movies of all time is "White Christmas" with Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. Rusty Jackson re-tells the story in his own inimitable way by performing the music from the show and narrating to fill in the rest of the story. The Rusty Jackson band and special guest Mel Dalton will do all this and more. You will also hear classic Christmas songs by Elvis, Judy Garland, Nat King Cole and more!
And there will be refreshments! Christmas favorites like cocoa, hot buttered rum, fudge and cookies!
Then the night ends with a traditional carol sing-a-long that will bring back such beautiful memories - this is what Christmas is all about! You owe it to yourself to start the season right with a night of music and fun like no other!
