The Whiskey A Go Go, The Cat Club, and Amplyfi to host up and coming modern rock band JACKIE ROCKS of Santa Cruz, Ca.
Daisy Rock Guitars sponsored artist, Jacklyn Partida (age 17), is the lead vocalist/guitarist of the band. Jackie started writing her own music at age 9 and started her band at the age of 11 along with bass player De’Andre Warren (age 16). They have joined up with members Tai Ma on guitar who worked with Joe Clements of legendary Santa Cruz punk band, FURY 66, and Mike Rude from Russian thrash/metal band HELL I FEEL on drums.
Together they create an Alternative and Melodic Hard Rock sound with very catchy songs. They have been described as a modern day Pat Benatar combined with the energy and urgency of early My Chemical Romance.
