Terence Bay, NS
Getting his start back in the after hour glory days of the East Coast rave scene, Jacksonstrut has a love for music that is matched only by his passion for dancing. During a long musical revolution through many genres of house he has been bringing the groove, swing, funk, soul and jack to dance floors from Nova Scotia to Quebec for over 12 years. Closing such clubs as Reflections, The Palace, La Sonar, Sub Rosa, Nitro, Oxygen and many others along side of some of the industries biggest names including J Paul Ghetto, Doc Martin, Inland Knights, Rescue, Dj Mes, Fort Knox 5, Bobby C Sound TV, Snails, The Funk Hunters, Cupcakes, Ski Tour, A-Paul, Corduroy Mavericks, Gene Farris and Jose Zaragoza, to name a few.
Jacksonstrut combines high energy beats with seductive vocals, funky bass, driving rhythms, and pounding drums to create an intimate atmosphere all his own. Known for his epic sunrise sets at the Evolve Festival, and his funky filtered after hours sets, Jacksonstrut can often be found dancing harder behind the decks than most of the crowd. His love of music has been influenced over the years by artists such as The Greenskeepers, Moloko, Modjo, Fatboy Slim, Armand Van Heldon, Cassius, and DJ Dan, as well as by local artists including Dale Mannette, Tommy Knuckles and Rickey Reid.
