Jesse Dayton special show at Cherry Bar.

“if you open your arms to the world, it’s amazing what will come back atcha” drawls East Texas native singer/songwriter/filmmaker/author, Jesse Dayton.

A veteran of more than 30 years as a musician, Dayton was discovered as a young teenager playing a “toilet dive” in his hometown of Beaumont by legendary club owner Clifford Antone, who booked him into his famed Austin venue, then immediately shifted him over to the honky-tonk Broken Spoke where the likes of Willie Nelson, George Strait and Ernest Tubb have had residencies.

Equally steeped in Texas/Louisiana blues, old-school country and punk-rock, Dayton is the worlds best kept secret, hiding in plain sight as guitarist for Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Ryan Bingham and LA punk pioneers X, as well as touring alongside Social Distortion, The Supersuckers and John Doe.
