Jackie Gage Covers Neon Trees During Recent Recording Party

Last Friday, I attended singer-songwriter Jackie Gage’s recording party for her upcoming live jazz album at SLG Art Boutiki & Gallery in Downtown San Jose.

I first learned about Jackie this past June at the Left Coast Live 365 event, where she performed with her jazz/rock band, Distant Dice. I was very much impressed with the band’s sound, as well as Jackie’s vocal ability. When I found out about her recording party, I figured it would be a great opportunity to check out Jackie’s solo jazz endeavor.

I had such a great time, and Jackie’s live album is going to be incredible! One of the highlights of her set was a very jazzed up rendition of Neon Trees’ hit song, “Animal.” Take a listen below!

Cool cover, right? I think it’s just fantastic!

I also have to give props to the Mark Arroyo Trio, who kicked off that night’s show. They were fantastic! If you’re in the Bay Area, you definitely should check them out at Left Coast Live on October 8!
