James Jackson, Jr. "Hometown Class"
OBERON Shows
One Night Only! Sunday, January 6, 2013
Another great evening of gender defying songs, ramblings from the pages of his leather-bound diary and an evening like no other. There will be Living!

He’s been called “too little”.  He’s been called “too much”.  His jeans have definitely been called “too tight”. But there’s always been an air of class about him.  Well, he’s home in Boston and he’s learned a few things since he’s been gone, children.  After amazing audiences at Los Angeles’ Lyric Theatre, James can safely report “The west coast was nothing but kind”.  Join James Sunday, January 6th @7PM for a night of new music in this gorgeous setting in the neighborhood where it all began.  Nothing feels better than coming home. With a band lead by the smooth and sultry Elliot Roth (www.ElliotRothMusic.com), it’s time for the blues, the jazz, …the fire, and the rain.  If you didn’t know story-telling was an art, you’ve never seen a single one of James’ shows.   If you missed him at Joe’s Pub, Duane Park, or Drom, be sure to see what tonight has in store! 

James Jackson, Jr. was undergraduately reared by lesbians in the New England Bekshires after artistically growing up in Boston under the soul-food tutelage of a deep southern family.  The shoes; Birkenstocks.  The music; Indigo, Simone, Franklin, & Difranconian.  The food; fattening.  The relationships; many, lost, and strong.

After being deposited in New York City over a decade ago, the real work began.  Dance belts, regional stage yelts, demanding Brits, and a rather unfortunate stop in Branson, Missouri lead to his discovery of artistic truth on prestigious stages like Radio City Music Hall as well as Carnegie Hall.  James’ razor-sharp wit, unique sense of humor, talent, and on & off stage persona have become an artistic force to be reckoned with as well as a voice people want to hear as he changes the face of the concert stage.
