“A Journey Through Jazz” with The Jackson Evans Band

October 9, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The Jackson Evans Band….

Jackson was born in northern Utah and began playing guitar at the age of twelve. At fifteen, he attended a concert given by his first teacher, Corey Christiansen. Impressed by the performance, he decided to dedicate himself to a career as a jazz guitarist and in 2004 graduated with a BM in guitar performance from Utah State University.

After relocating to Savannah, Georgia in 2004, Jackson became known throughout the southeast as an in-demand bandleader, composer, arranger, accompanist and educator. In addition to organizing several regional tours he has performed in concert series and festivals including an appearance as a featured guest with David Lugo and Latin Jazz Motion at the 2008 Savannah Jazz Festival. In 2009 Jackson became a Benedetto Guitars endorsing artist and in 2010 went on to record his first solo album, Song Noir, featuring saxophonist Jody Espina as co-producer and performer.

In 2011 Jackson made a bold move to Mainland China with his with his wife, vocalist/bassist Maggie Evans. After leaving a strong impression at a local jazz club, the couple was invited in 2013 for a six month engagement as the featured performers at JZ Huanglou in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, one of China’s most prestigious jazz venues.
