Celebrating a birthday can be fun, but how much cooler would it be if you were a successful singer-songwriter who’s worked with some of the biggest names across several genres? Fans of Jackie Greene can find out this Saturday when he headlines his annual birthday/Thanksgiving show at the Warfield.
The bash, which will open with a performance by the Jackie Greene Band, will also include appearances by Phil Lesh, Jason Crosby, Ross James and Mark Karan. In fact, it was Lesh who started the tradition nearly a decade ago after Greene toured with him.
Greene, who turns 36 over Thanksgiving weekend, is currently touring his 2015 album Back to Birth. His first album in more than five years is loaded with bluesy Americana like the heartfelt “Trust Somebody.”
Though he’s recorded seven albums as a solo artist, Greene is also a prolific touring musician. He was part of the final Black Crowes lineup before the band disbanded, and has made the rounds with acoustic trio WRG, comprised of Bob Weir, the Crowes’ Chris Robinson and Greene.
RIFF will send one lucky winner and a friend to the show. All you have to do is like our Facebook page, share the giveaway post and send us a message with your name. We’ll notify the winner Friday.
