Jackie PuppetNew Jersey’s Jackie Puppet was founded in 2007 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Brad Kleiman and Jim “Southside Slim” Williams. Their first performances were at Crossroads in Garwood, NJ, where they were part of the open-mic scene. After years as a duo, Jackie Puppet were joined by “Saxy” Joe Braverman (on sax!) and Slim’s Laziza bandmate Glenn “Hill” Hillman (on drums), transforming Jackie Puppet into the rock & roll band it was always meant to be. With the addition of NY singer-songwriter Grace Bergere on bass and vocals, Jackie Puppet’s sound was more versatile than ever. As for that Jackie Puppet sound? Alternately raucous, mellow, melodic, and anthemic, Jackie Puppet’s music is as unpredictable as its band members. Lyrics about horse-racing, beer-drinking, guitar-playing, and a cast of characters with names like Peg Leg Maria, Jane Crazy, Rock & Roll Reenie, and Charlene Whittenburg (from Phoenicia)! Jackie Puppet has performed at such New Jersey venues as the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, the aforementioned Crossroads in Garwood, 10th Street Live in Kenilworth, and most recently Dr. Lou’s in Roebling. They’ve also played Brooklyn’s legendary Fifth Estate, where they received noise complaints…
