Bad Jackson at Gravel Bar on Friday evening


It took me a moment to realize Bad Jackson was formerly Laurel Canyon Raiders and a terrible realization is I have not talked about them in Indy Soul once! Or at least from what all I could find in my computer I haven’t. I have done them dirty and I am going to rectify that. Now you’ll recognize the names of Jackson Gibson and Kenny Jackson who are both absolutely talented piano and guitar players and can belt tunes that you’ll easily recognize and don’t worry, they have originals as well! Probably my favorite thing to see about this duo is that they are never still in their videos. Swaying or bobbing to the music tells you they love playing as much as you enjoy hearing it. What more could you ask for?
