Not only is Charlie a fan favorite in Mexico, so bringing him back for The Big Reboot is a “no-brainer”, but he is also one of the few we could think of that could give us a great Chuck Berry Tribute. From the famous Chuck Berry duck walk to Chuck Berry’s big hits, we are very confident that Charlie will give you a great show. Mr. Versatility, a multi-instrumentalist, is sought out as a session musician for his lead guitar play and is equally at home with blues, rock, and rockabilly. Always an energetic stage performance.
When we had to replace Mike Clark from Calgary, who had to bow out for personal reasons, we found another Alberta Canada performer (based out of Red Deer) who will fit right in. The glove fits! Happy to tell you today, Charlie is getting his Chuck Berry Tribute and all his other material, polished up for Mexico in January.
Your not sure about Chuck Berry’s music, the man that every up-and-coming blues rock and rock musician from the early 60s onward idolized. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones to start. He is in our opinion the true father of modern rock n roll. John Lennon said, “Another name for rock ‘n roll, you could call it Chuck Berry” Here’s a great article from Rolling Stone magazine to get you into Chuck Berry’s music.
Charlie Jacobson is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist born in Red Deer, Alberta. He has backed up and been backed up by some of the Canadian blues and blues-rock giants: Harpdog Brown, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Russell Jackson, David Vest and Donald Ray Johnson, to name a few. All of this foundation-building paid off. Charlie’s guitar appears to be part of his body when he’s on stage, like a third arm. It is not uncommon to see him weaving through crowds and jumping from drum kit to table, while singing his heart out, and never losing a note on the guitar. His first full-length Album was released was in 2015 titled “Alberta Flood” Two more since.
Charlie always brings the great music, a willing attitude for anything jams and collaborations, and equally importantly, always brings the fun and a great spirit. Now with a great new tribute show and music, in homage, and interpreting Chuck Berry’s music that he will present in Mexico for the first time. Join Charlie and the rest of our great performers and say “Si, Go Mexico, Go Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Go Playa/Beach” January 21-29, 2023, when its cold everywhere else.
