It’s been nearly 20 years since Jackyl shot out of Georgia with its wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock ‘n’ roll. Equal parts hard rock, heavy metal and Southern rock, Jackyl formed in 1991 and brought back rock ‘n’ roll back — back to its down-to-earth, wild, fun-loving origins. Full of spit and swagger — and a “dirty” sense of humor to boot — Jackyl quickly earned a deal with Geffen Records. Jackyl’s live shows were already legendary before the ink dried on the Geffen contract. The band earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation “The Hardest Working Band in Rock ‘N’ Roll” for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours.

This passion is what leads many fans to refer to his performances as The Todd Simpson Experience. For all of the guitar prowess that Todd is known for, there is much more to his music. Todd is raw and passionate and most of all, real.

We are the band that gives people from all walks of life an opportunity to dance and groove to the beat. If you are looking for a timeless love song or a smooth groove we've got that.
