Wes Jeans & Kayla Reeves Live At Fat Jacks Friday Night[VIDEO]
Wes Jeans & Kayla Reeves will be playing live at Fat Jacks Oyster and Sports Bar Friday night. Wes Jeans ranks as one of the “Top Young Gun Guitar Players” – Guitar Player Magazine, March 2004. Wes delivers a soul-drenched mix of high voltage, rockin’ Texas Blues. Wes commands the stage from the start to finish and opens with a spirit of intensity that will surely grab you with his grinding rhythms and stinging leads allowing you a deep look into Wes Jeans’ Marshall, TX roots.
In 1996 Wes entered the International Jimi Hendrix Competition held in Austin, TX and placed an amazing second among fifteen hundred other young guitar players. Al Hendrix, father of Jimi Hendrix, told Wes, “In my eyes, you won because you played straight from the heart like Jimi!” These words along with the support of his family and friends set this young Texas Tornado in motion. Soon, Wes was playing area venues and festivals, attracting booking agents and record labels.
In late 2003, Guitar Player Magazine took a poll and readers voted Wes #3 among the “Young Gun Guitar Players” in the nation between Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd (published March 2004).
In June 2006 Wes released his 2nd studio album “Forest Of The Pine” under Texas Music Records. The album was produced by fellow axe-slayer Lance Lopez and is nothing short of blues/rock perfection. The record showcases Wes’ amazing blues guitar prowess and guest stars Memphis’ Eric Gales. XM Radio’s – Bluesville put “Forest Of The Pine” into heavy rotation – “This cd kicked my ass! It’s one of the best blues/rock cds of 2006!” – Aaron Lee, XM Radio. In January of 2007 “Forest Of The Pine” climbed its way up to the 3rd position on the German Blues Radio Charts.
Throughout his career, Wes has had the honor of meeting and sharing the stage with many musical greats such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Billy Gibbons, David Lee Roth, Dick Dale, Eric Johnson, Hubert Sumlin, Lynryd Skynyrd, Robert Cray, Joe Bonamassa, Indigenous, Lance Lopez, Chris Duarte, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, just to name of few.
Wes Jeans is a road-tested & approved true Texas star.
