Saw that he was coming to Boston. I know he is one of Warren's guys so I want to give him a chance. I downloaded his cd "giving up the ghost" and honestly tried to like it, forced myself to somewhat enjoy one or two songs. Overall i couldn't really see the big deal on this guy.
With that said I guess i have two questions. Has anybody seen him live? and if so is he one of those guys that is awesome live and just has mediocre studio stuff? I still want to give him a shot but if what i hear on record is the same as what i will hear live then i think I am all set.
I also noticed on youtube he covers tons of dead tunes etc. I really don't see any dead or jam band influences in his own personal music. Anybody have any thoughts?

The first time we saw him, he opened for Susan Tedeschi in Charlotte. About 4 years ago. We thought, this guy is very talented and he should go far. Seems like he has done what we thought. He did play his keyboard, harmonica, and guitar all during the same song. That was impressive. You should enjoy the show

I have all of his albums, because I keep wanting them to be good. I honestly don't like any of them.

WHY, then, do I keep buying his albums???? Because his live performances (with his own band, I've never seen in playing in other bands) are SIMPLY AWESOME.

Go see him if you have a chance, I think you'll be quite pleasantly surprised.

I have his albums and like him. Not sure exactly why one would think hes awesome live if they don't like his songs but to each his own. It s kind of cool what he said on his blog after playing with the Allmans for the first time. Quoted below:

"So the other night, John Molo and I got a chance to sit in with the Allman Brothers on the tune “Southbound”. To sit in with those guys is intimidating, to say the least. There I was, trading guitar licks with Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes and hanging on for dear life. It was frightening…and about the most fun I’ve had with my pants on. I have to say that watching Derek play slide (particularly from that close), is nothing short of a religious experience. It’s unreal. The guy is **** ing amazing.

Warren is no slouch. He’s got the serious triple threat going: guitar playing, writing songs and singing. Not to mention he’s about the nicest guy on the planet. A true gentleman."

He played 2007&2008 lead (together with Larry Campbell) in Phil Lesh & Friends

The only time's I've seen him were with Phil & Friends. He was ok. Larry Campbell was much more impressive as a guitar player in my opinion.

I saw him open for Susan years ago and was very impressed. I bought his cd, and it was ok. Saw him open for the Mule in October, and also really enjoyed his set. Bought his new cd, and again, it was ok. I think there is too much restraint on the cd's, and they don't capture his "live" sound at all.

I will see him again in a few weeks with the Mule in Chicago......

There's some good songs, but by and large, his studio recordings are way laid back, and are completely the opposite of the energy he brings to his performances on stage.

I may have felt differently if I bought some records before I saw him live. But, I saw him for the first time, and then bought the records, and was let down.

True enough. I listened to him before I ever saw him but what you say makes sense.

I think this is easily answered... Just look at Phish, i am not a fan but look at their live following.. Their studio stuff is horrid but their live show is COMPLETELY different then what you would hear from the studio stuff.
In a way you can say the same about Mule and even ABB? Although i do love ABB studio's stuff i personally feel the live versions take them to the next level.

Saw him with Phil and Friends back in 2008. Nothing real special about his performance. I thought he was a decent guitar player but nothing outstanding.

Saw him open for Mule last year. He was pretty good, but I wouldn't dive a long distance just to see him. He must have played 8 different guitars over the course of 6 songs. That was a little distracting.

Jackies live performances transcend his CD's. For some reason he has not transfered his talent to the recording studio very well. I do like his live shows and he is a good guitar player. I would highly recommend seeing him live. The man is talented.

Saw him with Phil for a few years at Nokia, he is a strong stage presence, seemed to be channeling a young Dylan one year, seems to be very talented musically, guitar, harmonica, piano, organ. He has a new cd coming out soon, I'm gonna check it out.

As always, check him out. I love his live stuff and was thrilled by his love of the Grateful Dead:

Almost didn't want to like him before I saw him with Phil. I was like who the hell does this kid think he is ?
Then I saw him at the Nokia and thought he rocked. Breathed new life into Phil and Friends. I missed Warren and Jimmy but it seemed like with Jackie and Larry, Phil kind of transitioned from crazy 68 style Dead jamming to the refined American Beauty era Dead. I really enjoyed it. I thought the kid had some serious sack to sing those Pig Pen tunes like he owned them. Very cool.

I have one of his CD's " American Myth" It's ok. Nothing that blows me away put good to spin now and then for a change. I would see his band live though. I've heard good reviews.

Saw him with Phil and Friends and wasn't all that impressed. Of course it was a night that Warren played most of the show as a guest, so Jackie was over looked. Then we saw him as a warm up in Columbus Ohio before Ratdog and the Black Crowes (great concert by the way). Really liked him a lot. It totally changed my opinion. Been looking forward to seeing him headline, which we will Feb. 14 at Brooklyn Bow. Recently got the Given Up The Ghost album and like it a lot. l

I saw him with Phil & Friends a couple years ago and totally loved him. I like his studio stuff too.....I went for a month or so with "Giving up the Ghost" on repeat. I was really looking forward to seeing him in Philly in a couple weeks, but unfortunately I'm moving the week before and so won't be able to go. If anyone wants the tickets, let me know.
