The GO is thrilled to have Jackie Venson return to our stage after her 2nd tour of Europe, and this time with her band!
Venson's astonishing mix of raw soul, superb musicianship and laid back grace (Austin American Statesman, June 2014) has been compared to the likes of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse and fellow Austin native Gary Clark, Jr.
Originally a classical pianist, Jackie picked up the guitar, shortly after graduating from Berklee College of Music, and made the giant leap from the tradition of classical music to the raw and gritty blues.
Enthralled with music since the age of 8, this young singer/songwriter/musician instantly captures your attention with a vibrant musical soul and passionate control of her instruments (voice, guitar & piano), that reach far beyond her tender age. As she mindfully blends Blues, Rock, R&B, Soul and more, with her introspective lyrics, the message is clear. When you're listening to Jackie you hear the Truth in Music.
In recognition of her dedication to her craft, Bestfan.com said Venson is "no dilettante, wannabe performer, however a real staple of what a musician can achieve when they put in their 10,000 hours for both musical schooling, and late night pub sessions for practical honing."
Her live performances revisit what makes music so powerful: emotion and passion. She thrives without the flash, instead favoring a clean sound, genuine soul, and meaningful connection with her audience. Music is not only what Venson does but also defines who she is and reminds her where she wants to be: performing.

Opening for the Jackie Venson Band will be the Christopher Dale Trio, featuring the 2015 San Diego Music Awards nominee for Best Singer/Songwriter.
"Christopher Dale is infectious and virtuoso. He rocks, he croons, he blows bubbles, he opens a vein and lets it bleed! - Mike Sager, Writer-at-Large, Esquire Magazine.
Spawning from San Diego's legendary singer/songwriter venue, Java Joes, with the likes of Jewel and Jason Mraz and described as Jimmy Buffett and James Taylor meet Tom Petty at a Barenaked Ladies concert, Christopher Dale mixes his many influences together to form one uniquely catchy artist. Whether hes performing solo or with his back up band, Dale intoxicates listeners with his honesty, heart and sheer energy. Coupled with a fiery stage presence and his trademark banter, each C. Dale live performance creates a lifetime memory.
Critically acclaimed CD releases, 11 SD Music Award nominations, countless shows and the desire to embrace his community have made him a local favorite. His songwriting prowess and remarkable vocal range have pushed him beyond his homegrown boundaries and into the hearts of people worldwide, as well as, the marketing strategies of such companies as Ikea and Nissan. His Christopher Dale & Friends shows wrap his passionate love affair with music, the audience and his peers, around you like a big group hug!
