Burnett "Captain Jack" Watson, a blues Vocalist, not just one who interprets his music as work but has a love for music, which was hidden inside for a long time. He was born in Gonzales, Texas south of the coast. He and his twin brother were adopted by his uncle and aunt, George and Wessie Mae Watson at the age of 18 months old and moved to Dallas, Texas in 1968. Captain Jack often played in church and joined the school band at Wilmer Hutchins High School. Captain Jack sung in the youth’s choir and played drums at 10 years old and was introduced to the blues world by his Uncle Morris White who formally was Bobby Patterson first manager. His uncle was known in Dallas as a great guitar player. Morris taught him and his twin how to sing and play the blues. At age 14, Captain Jack formed his first blues band which was managed by his older brother Roy Cassell and his uncle Larry White. Captain Jack played the drums in the marching band under the leadership of Bobby Simpson, who also played with Bobby Patterson and The Mustangs. On Thursday nights, Captain Jack was asked to sing on stage at the Coaches Corner giving him his first big break. Captain Jack was introduced to another world of the blues when Big Charles Young would call him on stage at RL Blues Palace and past him the microphone and let him get down.
