"We are Jackie Treehorn and our powers combined create 14 nipples!" is what you might hear when you see this totally fantastic funkadelic/soultastic/rockaphonic 7 piece sound-storm. You might think, "Hey, that lead singer Jackie is pretty alright!" But you''d be dead wrong, mister. Dead wrong. Jackie Treehorn is, in fact, the name of the entire collective of note-sluggin'' beat busting mofos, here for the specific purpose of removing your socks and tightening your pants. Starting with a few friends who met at Selkirk College way over yonder in the Kootenays in 19 something or other, this band formed from the sweet mutations of a variety of different bands and different people, including the heavy groovin’ jam band, Distracticon. But it was this year that the current roster was posted up on the board for all the kids to see. Horns, slide, organ, bass, guitar, drums and 3 vocalists bring a whole lot of whallop to your earholes. Bringing in a sweet and saucy blend of both originals and covers, JTH has been known to mix in Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, The Talking Heads, Marvin Gaye, Carol King, and Janis Joplin to their ever expanding list of homegrown grooves. The band squeezes all 7 members to render the sweet, sweet songwriting sauce, making the mix truly eclectic and exciting. With songs ranging from rock-gospel anthems in which your friends are the object of worship, to straight up songs of funky conquest where the brain is the thang that turns you on, its a great big mix bag of feel-good for 2010. Modern ideas to classic grooves: that''s the JTH way. Jackie Treehorn has been gigging regularly all over Vancouver; from regular Wednesday night stints on Main St. to the occasional outdoor rock concert in the UBC bushes. The fan base grows evermore, expanding the JTH universe a little more each day... ..
