Snakebeard Jackson
Snakebeard Jackson Snakebeard Jackson is a union of Rock, Bluegrass, Country and Blues. Comprised of six members with musical tastes as varied as their creative contributions, Snakebeard is host to a vocal/guitar team that strums, sings and screams the blues, a thundering stand up bass, a drummer that hits like a heavyweight, an agressive mandolin picker and one of the state's finest washboard players. In promotion of their new LP The Burl, Snakebeard has built a large and loyal fanbase live in concert as well as online. The sound is classic and new. The songwriting hinges on the plight of fighters and the struggles of the losers that win in the end. Snakebeard Jackson has played in front of thousands of fans across the midwest. From Yankton to Mankato. From Brookings to Vermillion. From Huron to Spearfish. And many Sioux Falls Saturday nights. In the late summer of 2008, watch for shows in an expanded geographic region. The Burl was recorded at Minnesota's Pachyderm Studios and was released in October 2007. In December it was named Best Sioux Falls Album of the Year by the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. Look for Snakebeard Jackson's second LP late 2008/early 2009. Snakebeard Jackson has opened for the likes of Shooter Jennings, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Tesla, Cowboy Crush, Kansas and others. Snakebeard has also played with local Sioux Falls favorites the Smoke & Mirros Band, Kory & The Fireflies, Solution, we all have hooks for hands, The Quaker City Night Hawks and many others.
