At a young age, Alvin Jackson has already accomplished the mastering of Rhythm and Blues in the New Orleans style. His techniques and enthusiasm are all qualities that are a direct result of his upbringing in New Orleans by a loving and extended family. Al's grandmother owned the Vet's Club roadhouse where she booked such nobles as Fats Domino, Llyod Price, and Tommy Ridgely. This exposure influenced Al to pursue a musical career that has brought him tremendous success and deemd him the nickname "Lil Fats" for his indistinguishable voice to Fats Domino.
