Hard to believe it has been 2 years since Big Jack passed away. Great times seeing Jack in clubs all over Chicagoland and the South. One of my all time favorites and a TCBX regular from the beginning. Always tough to figure out who we saw more often back in the day…R.L. Burnside, Mem Shannon, Big Jack Johnson, or Son Seals. This night at B.L.U.E.S. was unseasonably warm….I think it was 60+ in December and with the club packed as tight as possible it was a HOT night in more ways than one. I think Jack, Hooter, Chet and Chris had driven about 400 miles to get there and had another 500 to drive the next day but once they started playing you would never know. We’ll be play lots of other Big Jack in the future but for now get up off that desk chair and enjoy a listen into one of the most intimate clubs in the World Capital of the Blues.
Now like Big Jacks Bass Player Hooter says….”Time to Shake Your Booty People!”
