Singer/Songwriter. Cabaret Performer. And Host extraordinaire. Jackson Sturkey is one of the last of the Good Time Charlies.  He normally can be found at many haunts of the east village and is also a Perennial player of Frigid NYC, Pangea, Liquid Family Dinner Cabaret, Ten foot rat Cabaret, and is the front man of his band The Big Turn On. His obsession with old Hollywood can be seen in his insta feed @outlatetonight. His most recent home has been Pangea. Part Tiny Tim, part dapper throwback, part emotional fire iron.


Jackson produced the Variety show ‘Jackson Sturkey and his Orchestra’ through Frigid NYC, and has been an assistant producer on Runway the Realway for about 4 years, and has been hosting Cuckoos Open Mic at Soho Playhouse. Jackson Sturkey is an ‘On Purpose’ artist who believes in New York and has written it and broadway a love song called “A Ghostlight for You” which is available on spotify or can be downloaded on Bandcamp. He is still in New York. He is still creating and hoping to continue the refuge that New York has been for him and so many others. "Art should bring more people to the table, and you have to be part of art that you feel makes the world a better place."
