Earl Jackson began playing the guitar at the age of five. Born of Jamaican parents in Lambeth in 1964, Earl was heavily influenced by Gospel. Much of his charisma and on-stage confidence comes from performing before ten thousand people or more at various Gospel events. Earl was invited to join a rock ‘n’ roll band in the mid-80′s and the rest is history!
Earl is a well known figure on the British Rock n’ Roll and Jive circuits with his band ‘The Earl Jackson Four’ and has made appearances on BBC radio and TV including the prestigious Jonathon Ross show which was widely acclaimed as a great success. Earl also goes out as a three-piece for smaller clubs or a five-piece for larger events, and also acts as host/DJ for some of the Boogaloo weekends.
Earl Jackson as Chuck Berry
After making an amazing debut performance at The Assembly Rooms at Tunbridge Wells in June 2010, Earl Jackson is now one of the stars of the new Rockin’ on Heaven’s Door show. Earl’s portrayal of the legendary Chuck Berry has to be seen to be believed. Earl’s voice, stage presence and powerful performance coupled with his outstanding guitar playing bring to life the pounding rhythms of Chuck to the theatre stage.
Chuck Berry Band/Show
Earl has a large repertoire of Chuck Berry songs, so can produce part or a whole show of Chuck Berry material if requested!
