Jesse Dayton can reasonably lay claim to being the one of the coolest people on the planet.
From playing guitar as a fifteen year old in all black zydeco bands and recording with the celebrated Rockin’ Dopsey while still in his teens, to having Doug Sahm and Flaco Jimenez appearing on his debut solo record; from being personally picked by Waylon Jennings to play lead guitar on his recording Right For The Time, to performing with Johnny Cash, Willy Nelson and Glen Campbell, his resume resembles a who’s who of great American musicians. Add to that his world tours with punk superstars like Social Distortion and X, his soundtracks for horror films, zombie ones in particular, and his performance as the lead singer and guitarist of the fictional psychobilly band Captain Clegg & the Night Creatures in Halloween II, cool doesn’t even start to describe him.
A sensational musician and a composer of songs like the heartfelt "Daddy Was A Badass", Jesse Dayton is a true force of nature. His UK appearances are rare events, and it’s an honour to be able to host one of his shows.Website
