Jackie Greene on Conan Tonight!

Hi all, just got back to the hotel from the taping at NBC.  Hope you can tune in and watch the show.  I believe it airs at 12:35am, 11:35 central. We recently performed at Mountain Jam and had a wonderful time. For those of you who have never been up to that festival, I suggest you go.  Every act was great.  I finally got to see Ray Lamontagne perform, and he and his band were amazing.  I got to sit in on a tune with the legendary Michael Franti and Spearhead.  Those guys can really, really put on a show!

That same night, the band and I were lucky enough to be invited to go watch the Levon Helm Band out at his barn in Woodstock.  It was literally one of the most amazing nights of music I’ve ever seen.  The band was incredible.  Levon sounded as good as ever and I nearly broke down when he began to sing “The Weight”.   I hope to one day be half as powerful as that guy.  That guy is pure soul.  Man!

We have a really cool show coming up this Thursday in Reno, NV.  We’re doing a double bill with our dear friends, the Mother Hips.   Come on out!
