[ARCHIVED] Jackie Scott & The Housewreckers - Wednesday, January 15, 6-8 pm!

Square Jackie Scott by Gary Eckhart

Jackie Scott & The Housewreckers have local roots that make Hampton Roads home. Coming from varied backgrounds and influences makes for a hot combination of blues and R&B packed with soul when you encounter and fall under the power of Jackie Scott & The Housewreckers.

Jackie has spent years honing her craft as a vocalist and her quest lead her to the steamy windows of Chicago's blues scene. It was in Chicago that Jackie received her baptism into the blues. Musicians and performers, great and small, all freely shared in their wealth of skill, time and talent to help her grow as a blues entertainer. Nellie Travis, Chicago blues woman and westside bluesman and Howlin' Wolf sidekick, Eddie Shaw, played a major part in mentoring her into the blues Chicago style.

Opening for the likes of BB King, Keb Mo, Taj Mahal, Lyle Lovett and many more has definitely been a plus. Touring trips and festivals across the country have all played a part in making Jackie Scott & The Housewreckers the ultimate entertainment machine.

Admission is free to museum members, $5 for non-members. Beer and wine available for purchase. Proceeds benefit the museum. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Seating and capacity are limited, and first come, first serve.
