It's time to salute and honor a true West Texas legend, Jesse 'Guitar' Taylor. Serious players from the past and present will come together for the 5th annual JesseFest.
Jesse Taylor was and still is a Lubbock legend. Inducted into the West Texas Walk of Fame last year, Taylor started the original Sunday Jam back in the day at the first Stubb's BBQ. He played with some of the finest musicians from here in Lubbock, Austin and all points beyond.Taylor is known for perfecting the "flat land" guitar pickin' style.
The event will take place at the Tornado Gallery on July 13, when the Lubbock community will pay tribute to Jesse Taylor.
Performers scheduled to play include Paul Bullock, Rev. Al and the Pythons, Wade Parks Band, Brandon Adams and the Sad Bastards, The Texas Belairs with guests Ponty Bone and RC Banks. Artwork on display will be a collection of Lubbock musicians by Joseph Garnett.
JesseFest is all about the "cream of the local scene-new talent, old talent, folks who played the Main Street Saloon, Scotty's and The 19th St. Warehouse. This is a Lubbock celebration, for a stellar Lubbock talent, put on by Lubbock folks. Simple as that," says Larry Simmons of Tornado Gallery.
JesseFest 2013 is a BYOB event with tickets available at the door for $15.
