Ranked 3rd in the World at the 2016 International Blues Challenge Finals, “The Soul Machine” Norman Jackson and his groove inducing love producing band guarantees that when they play the Blues you will, “Get Your Happy On!” Norman is the genuine article, growing up on the south side of Chicago, he was taught the Blues from the true giants in Blues and Soul. Norman began to apprentice his saxophonist, Rick Shortt from the age of 12, who is now the turbine engine of the band playing lead on saxophone. Along with the rock steady rhythm section of Danny Williams and “The Boogie Man”, the "Baddest Soul Band in the Land” will take you on a journey with stories from their lives on a road filled with laughter and showmanship laced with virtuoso mastery that will make everyone “Get Down and Get Happy”!
The band enjoyed a banner year in 2016 playing Blues festivals around the United States and is already booked in 2017 to play major festivals and showcases from New York to New Mexico along with Europe and Israel in November. Our new record, “It’s the Drummers Fault”, will release this May worldwide.
