With his gravel-filled vocals and piano-pounding antics, Roddy Jackson’s legacy is a solid one, and he is one of the last true rockabilly pioneers still out on the circuit. Born as George Roderick Jackson in California around 1940, Jackson fronted the multi-racial Blue Notes out of Merced, CA, beginning in 1956.

Specialty released three Jackson singles in 1958 and 1959, all produced by Sonny Bono, “I’ve Got My Sights on Someone New”/”Love at First Sight,” the double-sided classic “Hiccups”/”Moose on the Loose,” and “Any Old Town”/”Gloria.”

Cheryl Lockett, a song stylist, whose riveting voice and warm style promises any listener an aesthetically pleasing and cohesive composition of music that flows like silk. Cheryl is a California native gifted with many talents. She cultivates, curate and presents an eclectic vision of sound that appeals to a diverse listening audience.

Born in Tucson, Arizona, on March 30, 1938, Baldwin pitched for three years for the University of Arizona. In the 1959 College World Series he beat Fresno State 5 to 1 on a two-hitter and lost the final game of the series 5 to 3 to Oklahoma State. He signed with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1959 and pitched on three pennant winners in his first four years of pro ball. Later, he was a relief specialist for the Washington Senators (1966–69), Milwaukee Brewers (1970), and Chicago White Sox (1973).

After he retired from baseball in 1974 he earned a Ph.D. in genetics and an M.S. in systems engineering from the University of Arizona. He worked as a geneticist, engineer, and artist until his retirement in 2003. Subsequently, he has collaborated with other researchers studying the physics, physiology, and psychology of baseball. In addition, he has published his baseball memoir, Snake Jazz, and (under the pen name “DGB Featherkile”) a collection of his poetry, Limbic Hurly-Burly. Many of his poems have appeared in such journals as American Poetry Journal, Blue Unicorn, and Evansville Review. His poetry won the Atlanta Review’s 2007 International Publication Prize and the 2009 Fluvanna Prize from The Lyric.
