Joanne Jackson Quartet Video

CIBS members, John and Elaine Mattingly sent us this note…

We would like to announce the release of a new music video production of Iowa Blues Hall of Famer Joanne Jackson’s recording of our original song, Next To You. We wrote this song back in 1999 and are celebrating its 20th anniversary. The music video includes a photo tribute of Miss Jackson’s career following the performance of the song by the Joanne Jackson Quartet (Joanne Jackson on vocal, John Mattingly on piano, Steve McCombs on bass and Marty McDonald on drums). It was recorded at Great Plains Recording in Clive. We were honored that Miss Jackson regularly sang our song while performing in central Iowa. She now resides in the Los Angeles area with her son and can be easily reached via Facebook:)

Please share, communicate and enjoy this project as you see fit:)

In appreciation for all you do for the blues!
John & Elaine Mattingly

About CIBS

Keeping the Blues Alive through
Celebration,
Preservation
& Education!

The Central Iowa Blues Society was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 1992 by 200 blues lovers. Our mission is to keep the blues alive through celebration, preservation, and education. We endeavor to increase awareness of and appreciation for blues music by providing a network of association for blues enthusiasts. We recognize and honor our Iowa blues heritage through the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame program. We celebrate blues performance by promoting numerous concerts throughout the year including the Winter Blues Fest and the Iowa Blues Challenge. We strive to educate and ensure the future of the blues through Blues in the Schools.

Central Iowa Blues Society received The Blues Foundation’s Keeping the Blues Alive Award in 2016. Each year, The Blues Foundation presents the Keeping the Blues Alive (KBA) Awards to individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the Blues around the world.
