"From Brisbane to New Orleans a Melbourne quartet of blues and jazz musicians is taking the world by storm." Herald Sun Melbourne.

The Jackson Four have been impressing audiences across Australia and internationally since 2013 with their New Orleans inspired Blues and Swingin’ Jazz. They were the ‘surprise hit’ of the Devonport Jazz Festival 2017 with three full house shows. Followed by an invitation to perform in the UK during the international Edinburgh festival. Their latest release, ‘Kool Kats’ also reached top 5 on the Australian Blues and Roots Radio Chart in 2017.

The band has developed quite a following overseas. In the U.S., Europe and especially the U.K. Entering the UK Blues charts at number 17 in Nov 2015 with their debut release, ‘Love the Life’.

A short promo visit followed in 2016. With appearances at some of London’s iconic Blues and Jazz clubs in Soho, Covent Garden and the East End. Receiving an enthusiastic welcome from Blues and Jazz audiences alike.

The band’s distinctive style and sound is centered around the classic Hammond B3 organ. With interplay from soulful and Bluesy sax and vocals. All driven by a strong Swing, Jazz, New Orleans style rhythm and percussion section. Their music is a journey into the crossroads where Blues and Jazz intersect. With a repertoire mixing the sounds of New Orleans and Memphis into their own interpretations of renowned favourites and hidden unknown gems that the band searches out.
