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’s new CD ‘Earl Jackson Explains’ has been released – at last!!! Recorded in The Netherlands with cc Jerome & The Savoys, the CD features 10 great tracks, recorded in Eindhoven on the Tombstone Record label. The Savoys are great musicians as you will hear, and the CD is really rocking! We’ll be selling the CD at gigs at the usual £10, but if you’d like to get your hands on one before, we’ll be happy to post one to you at £10 plus £1.50 p&p.

After making an amazing debut performance in 2010 as one of the stars of Rockin’ on Heaven’s Door, Earl Jackson now regularly appears at theatres around the country with his tribute to Chuck Berry.
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 as well as other Rock ‘n’ Roll greats.
