Description

"Dupree IS an entertainer as well as a great blues man. What makes this man so popular wherever he goes? Well, it is partly his sparkling personality and his gift for instantly summing up his audience and changing his act to suit the mood. However, there is more to it than mere professionalism. It is within the man himself. This man loves people; he has no bitterness with all the troubles he has experienced. Mike Vernon has written: -A warm-hearted, amusing, honest and friendly person. Anyone who had the fortune to meet Jack will confirm this without hesitation. He will converse with you as a friend, even if he doesn't know you from Adam! Help with problems if he can. He will talk about his music for hours, if given the chance, and mention of long forgotten names will cause an avalanche of words to slide from his lips. That is Jack Dupree the man, and some of this comes over to warm up the audience - perhaps I should call them his friends -for Jack looks upon his large public as his friends."
