Sunday February 28th at 6pm for the Linsmore Tavern's (1298 Danforth Ave) Blues Sunday, we are bringing in the super-talented Charlie Jacobson Band! Only the best in blues music is what Blues Sunday is all about and the Charlie Jacobson Band definitely fits the criteria!
Charlie Jacobson is a passionate 24 year old blues/rock artist with no fixed address. Over the last few years Charlie has played hundreds of shows across the Canadian prairies and back and forth over the Rockies. With his guitar and suitcase drums always packed in the car, his nomadic lifestyle takes him to shows ranging from music festivals, house concerts, large blues clubs to community halls and theatres. You might see him fronting the four-piece Charlie Jacobson Band or recreating that full sound on his own, playing his suitcase drums with his heels, ripping on the guitar, singing and dancing.
As well as his personal projects, Charlie has been cutting his teeth as the guitarist for some of Canada’s most well respected blues acts including Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Russell Jackson and Donald Ray Johnson. This has included performances at the Calgary International Blues Festival in 2013 and 2014, and prominent blues clubs around Alberta. Jackson and Johnson form the rhythm section on the new Charlie Jacobson Band recording, Alberta Flood.
In addition to being an accomplished guitarist and songwriter, Charlie is a true showman. If there is a table to dance on, a banister to slide off or a chandelier to swing from, you’ll find him working it into his passionate, high-energy act.
The Charlie Jacobson Band is one of Canada's up and coming premier acts, so make sure you come out to see him! If you are a fan of really good Blues, the Linsmore Tavern every sunday at 6pm is the place to be! No Cover!
