COTTON JACKSON / Bio

Cotton Jackson (the band) started out in the early 90’s as a somewhat, bluegrass-style band, incorporating acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle, piano, pickle bucket, wooden frogs, and opera singers. We quickly progressed into a rock and roll country metal band due to an untimely death, folks moving away and the replacement of members with members that still enjoyed playing good old rock and roll. We even added an accordion for a time for some extra zazz. Presently Cotton Jackson is working like a finely tuned tractor, plowing through the fields of the Midwest. Cotton, Joe Cobra and Gator will play just about any show, with any kind of band, and bring a good-time hillbilly party to the stage (or barn, porch, creek side, roller rink, what have you).Get in the van and hold on!
