Wanda Jackson/Dex Romweber Duo

8 p.m. Sunday, March 27. Blueberry Hill's Duck Room, 6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City.

How do you sum up the influence of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson? During her 50-year-plus(!) career — which started when she was a high school student in Oklahoma City — the singer has moved effortlessly between country, rockabilly and early rock & roll. She opened for (and covered) Elvis Presley, had a then-undiscovered Roy Clark in her band and has never let waning chart success derail her touring schedule. At the age of 73, the queen of cool is touring behind a new, Jack White-produced/arranged album, The Party Ain't Over. (Before you ask: No, White isn't part of Jackson's touring band for this show.) Jackson is again making waves on the strength of Over's first single, a cover of Bob Dylan's "Thunder on the Mountain." The Dex Romweber Duo — itself a talented purveyor of economical blues and early rock & roll — is opening. (Be sure to head to www.rftmusic.com to see an interview with Jackson.)
