    Jimmy Thackery & the Drivers w/ The Throwdown Band

    Though most associate Jimmy Thackery with his 15 years as the co-founder of one of the most respected bands in the business, The Nighthawks, he has since been on the road doing nearly 300 shows a year, proving each night that he is still the guitar powerhouse of the blues. Whether he headlines a festival in South Dakota or jams for hours in one of numerous blues bars that dot the musical landscape, he'll always unleash an intense volley of rockin' blues guitar guaranteed to leave crowds emotionally spent. After Thackery left The Nighthawks he formed a six piece R&B band, the Assassins, an all-star R&B, funk band from the DC area, and recorded three albums with them. Then, in 1992, he put together his three piece power trio called "the Drivers" to highlight his explosive guitar playing and hit the blues highway. The 1990's were a fabulous time for the band, playing close to 300 shows a year and recording eight discs for Blind Pig. All this has lead to a new Jimmy Thackery. Because every record is more about originals than covers, he began to travel to Nashville to work out his songs with some of the best songwriters in the biz. This was not about Jimmy Thackery goes country. This was about Jimmy Thackery rocks the blues. Jimmy and the Drivers rock the house, then burn it to the foundation. And when you walk away you can still "feel the heat" and see the embers burning. His newest CD with the Drivers, "Feel the Heat" will be released just in time for this show.
