It’s an incredible accomplishment when a rock band has been successful enough to reach the 25-year mark since the release of their first album. And rowdy southern rockers Jackyl have accomplished this feat, and celebrated with an appropriately-titled compilation, ’25’. “At the time we first hit the scene, we were told by quite a few interviewers and fans that we sounded like a cross between Black Oak Arkansas and AC/DC,” explains Jackyl. “While we was very familiar with AC/DC, we were not with BOA. We went back and listened, and were blown away - so much so, that we recorded a cover of one of their most kick ass tunes, ‘Hot and Nasty,’ which is now finally getting its release on this comp.”
First bursting upon the scene with their self-titled, platinum-certified debut album in 1992, Jackyl has made a name for themselves as a killer live band that delivers night after night, and has continued to offer up good old fashioned blues boogie over the years.
“Its not about coming to see a Jackyl show, its about coming to be a part of it,” Says Jesse Dupree. “Every show becomes a family reunion.”
We're pumped to be welcoming Jackyl to the RockYard stage for the first time. You can bet Jesse will be doing some cutting!
