Crazy Mama’s Concerts and Natalie’s are thrilled to present the one and only Wanda Jackson for one very special night of rockabilly music not to be missed!  Wanda is an American singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist who had great success in the mid-1950s and 1960s as one of the first popular female rockabilly singers and a pioneering rock and roll artist  She is known to many as the “Queen of Rockabilly” or the ‘First Lady of Rockabilly.”


Jackson mixed country music with fast-moving rockabilly, often recording them on opposite sides of a record. As rockabilly declined in popularity in the mid-1960s, she moved to a successful career in mainstream country music with a string of hits between 1966 and 1973, including “Tears Will Be the Chaser for Your Wine,” “A Woman Lives for Love,” and “Fancy Satin Pillows.”


Wanda had a resurgence in popularity in the 1980s among rockabilly revivalists in Europe and younger Americana fans. In 2009, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an Early Influence.


Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch this legendary artist that has influenced countless musicians over the years!
