5th Anniversary Show Performer Highlight: Jackson Sturkey

Jackson-Halfface_Mischevious
Cafe singer and bon vivant Jackson Sturkey and His Orchestra brings to mind witty, bittersweet characters of shadowy saloons and old theaters, absinthe in glamorous Paris basements and the sass of Prohibition nightclub legend Texas Guinan (“hello, suckers!”).

The Ten-Foot Rat Cabaret is thrilled to have Jackson back for our 5th Anniversary Show on Sat., Sept 8, 10:30pm!

WATCH his Live, Original song here: “Sober”

Host of the Tampa Fringe Festival, perennial player in the monthly Plan B and Family Liquid Dinner variety shows, Jackson is larger than life yet infinitely familiar. And congratulations are in order: his monthly “summer replacement” show at Under St. Marks Theater was renewed for a whole year!

Mischevious, melancholy, witty, the singer returns to charm and delight you as he captures the essence of the Hot Art Salon. You’ll agree that he’s been too long away.

“If Jimmy Durante,  Judy Garland and Texas Guinan all had a love child… they would’ve grown up to be Jackson Sturkey!”
– Audience member Mimi O.
