Tonight I See…Wanda Jackson!

Wanda Jackson

I’m so excited! for tonight right here in Toronto, I get to see the Queen of Rockabilly…”Wanda Jackson” in the flesh. She will be performing at a favorite watering hole for Rockabilly lovers in Toronto called the “Cadillac Lounge” and the show is going to be amazing I just know it!

What is awesome about the “Caddy” as we call it here is that it is small so it’s going to be a pretty intimate show so I hope I can score some good pictures of her OR maybe even meet her..OMG could you imagine?? If I do I will do a follow up post with the pictures.

In the mean time I thought I would share a few pictures of the beautiful Wanda Jackson and a couple of videos of my favorite songs as well. Enjoy!

Did you know that Wanda briefly dated Elvis??? Lucky Lucky Lucky girl!

During the 1950s, Jackson’s stage outfits were often designed by her mother. Unlike traditional clothing worn by female country music singers of the time, she wore fringe dresses, high heels and long earrings; and has claimed she was the first female to put “glamor into country music (Source: Wikipedia).
