Bruce Jackson came back AGAIN. You just can't keep this guy down…this time he brought with him three other musicians making up the Jackson LeBeau Project and they entertained us with many different genres of music. Bruce was also on our 88th show with The Moondogs 88 and his first appearance was with Wayne McFarland and Jahz.
