Maybe you saw him open the 2019 Big Orange Music Festival when he was 9-years old featuring such established performers as Blackberry Smoke and The Allman Betts Band to name a few. Maybe you saw him as a special guest guitarist with The Marshall Tucker Band opening for Country Giants Alabama or opening for Country Superstar Mark Wills.
Maybe you heard him more recently on one of the many radio stations when he was featured on the 'Streets of Rock 'n Roll' a syndicated radio show hosted by Veteran Rocker Ron Keel. Maybe you haven't heard him, but you will. Champ Jaxon is 11-years old now, recently debuted his first album, and tomorrow he is set for a guest appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
The music of Allman Brothers Band that first fueled his passion for music and it's only getting better with age. For those of us who grew up on Rock 'n Roll with all those Southern Rock 'n Roll bands we've been smiling big, taking comfort knowing the legacy is alive and well. Oh yeah, did we mention his remote vocal coach is Scott Sharrard, former lead guistarist and musical director for Gregg Allman. The music of Champ Jaxon would even make Bob Seger smile.
A couple upcoming 2022 gigs booked so far is the South Florida State Fair and International Blues Challenge in January. Catch him now on The Ellen DeGeneres Show tomorrow.
