Jesse Dayton is a country / honky-tonk / rock-a-billy singer & red hot guitar slinger from Beaumont Texas.
He has been around playing music for quite a spell in various bands. He caught my attention because he played guitar on the Supersuckers country album Must've Been High. I picked up his album Rasin' Cain shortly there after and loved it. It was awhile before I got to see him play his country act. The end of the 90's there was a rock-a-billy revival of sorts and I saw Jesse's band The Road Kings open up for Mike Ness. The Road Kings are an amazing band as well. Check them out too.
It wasn't until 2001 that Jesse came to Denver with his country band and played at the Lion's Lair. To about 20 people. He said it reminded him of his parents basement. He's been back a handful of times over the years and always puts on a good show.
In fact he is coming into Denver this week. He is playing at the Marquis Theater on Thursday August 22nd.
Check his stuff out here. He's got a lot of iron's in the fire these day so it will be a treat to see him play out of Texas.
This show is when he opened up for the Supersucker country extravaganza tour back in 2002. Enjoy.
