What started out as a faint call quickly turned into a bellowing desire for the blues. Jackie's desire to learn more about the blues led her to the streamy windows of the Chicago blues scene. It was there she received her baptistism into what has turned into a love and respect for the blues. Vocalist, performer, entertainer, writer and producer...come and getcha some !!

The Blues is our inheritence...passing it on gives it value."
See what some had to say about their performances...
Her vocal chops and natural charismas were deadly. She directed the Housewreckers, her crisp and soulful band, with a single stab of the hip. Throughout she sounded like a pro and looked like she was having the time fo her life.

Jackie Scott & the Housewreckers kicked off the festivities with gusto and showed the patrons why they were nominated for three Blues Blast Awards as fans cheered her powerful, emotional performance.

Soul? Blues? Are you kidding me? This band will be headlining festivals all over the place. If you dig Koko Taylor you will like Jackie..yes..not only does she have the stage presense and chops of Koko Taylor, she's got her own thing going on!!
