The best kept secret in music

The main event of the night was a stellar, electrifying performance by The Jam Project-so named for their propensity towards stretching out electrifying instrumentals during their performances. Led by Austin native, Trevor Hickle on lead vocals and lead guitar, The Jam Project is a must see group of seasoned musicians.

Trevor started playing the Austin circuit when he was five years old at the Cricket Pub, where his mother was a cocktail waitress and he would be encouraged by patrons to perform. He performed at the Zachary Scott Theatre when he was the ripe old age of ten years old, and it was at that time that he realized that performing was in his blood. He has since played with the likes of Joe Valentine and opened for The Alman Brothers, Atlantic Rhythm Section, Pat Trevors, and Jeff Haney-just to name a few.

Stan Bennett plays bass for The Jam Project. He has been performing for over 25 years. He was a F-16 mechanic for eight years and this is where he met the band’s drummer, Wayne McConnell. They have been friends and performed together ever since. Like the rest of the band, Wayne has been around, playing with The Time Bombs and others along the way.

Tonight, they were joined by Jimmy Butler. This was the first time Jimmy had played with the band, but it was hard to tell. All of these musicians are so talented that Jimmy was able to jump right in. Wayne told me before the performance began that he was excited about having Jimmy join them. It didn’t take long to see why. Jimmy has played with Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Drifters, The Coasters and at Austin’s famous South by Southwest Festival.

From the first note, the small but enthusiastic crowd knew they were in for a treat. They aptly covered some difficult songs, including Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower”. They covered songs with their own twist by The Alman Brothers and Robert Earl King-just to name a few of my favorites.

They also played some of their own songs, one of which was “She’s Gone”. This was a great little blues tune that went over with the attentive audience like gangbusters. If you get a chance to see The Jam Project, don’t miss it-this band is smoking’!
