Album Notes
Hunter and The Dirty Jacks comprise a virtual all-star cast of Los Angeles and Orange County-area musicians that have been playing locally and regionally for over ten years apiece. Fronted by lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Hunter Ackerman, and anchored by Jon Siembieda and Carmelo Bonaventura on guitar, Aaron Barnes on bass, Brian Lara on drums, and Moana Avvenenti on background vocals, the Dirty Jacks put forth an extremely high energy, emotionally compelling performance coupled with a rare combination of soulful originals and tasty covers. The sound is rock and roll with a bluesy edge, ala the Black Keys, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, and The Rival Sons. The band is very seasoned for all players being in the late 20s and early 30s. The Dirty Jacks debuted at House of Blues Sunset Strip on 9/29/12 to a resounding success and haven't looked back since. In just a few short months, the band has gone on a tour of Northern California, set up a second tour in June, played a third leg in October, a fourth leg in November, and also has established a critically-acclaimed weekly residency that started at the beginning of 2013 at Harvelle's in Santa Monica, where all of the admission proceeds and a portion of drink sales benefit feeding the hungry in Santa Monica, as well as teaching foster children music. The previous band to hold this residency was Vintage Trouble, who is now touring the world opening for The Who. The bandmates have experience playing several casinos in and out of state (Fantasy Springs Rock Yard, Avi Casino, Blue Lake Casino, as examples), House of Blues Sunset, House of Blues Anaheim, Coach House, Harvelle's, Observatory, Detroit Bar, The Press, Still Water, Whisky a Go Go, Viper Room, and many other venues. Acclaimed, world-class blues/rock guitar legends Coco Montoya, Eric Sardinas, Phil Gates, and Jimmy Vivino have come down and sat in to jam with the band all within the last two months. The bandmates have collectively shared bills with bands of the likes of Tommy Castro, Eric Sardinas, Dave Mason, Walter Trout, Cinderella, Led Zepagain, Wayward Sons, Wild Child, War, and many others. Current press to date - (it) Magazine, ShockBoxTV, 88.1 FM KKJZ, 100.3 FM The Sound L.A., Whoa Magazine, Influentza Magazine, Blues Rock Review, Music On The Left, Santa Monica Mirror, Southland Blues Magazine, Patch, The Argonaut Newspaper, and 88.9 FM KUCI.

“Tuesdays at Harvelle’s Santa Monica are unlike any Tuesday at any given blues club. The residency belongs to Hunter & The Dirty Jacks, a high energy, multi-dimensional bluesy, rootsy rock and roll band, who has transformed the way music gives back to the community.”

- Jynarra Brinson, Santa Monica Mirror (Dec 27, 2013)

“There are a bunch of people congregating in the dark crevices of a Los Angeles blues bar, plotting to subvert the system, overthrow the music-industry machine and lift up the downtrodden. Most of whom have played in this bar too many times to count. But instead of talking about music, these co-conspirators are talking about a music-business revolution.”

- Arissia Owen, Orange County Weekly (Dec 19, 2013)

"... seeing them live is an experience you shouldn’t pass up on."

- Daniel Garcia, Influentza

"The whole band is not only tight onstage, but has also found a great way to focus their musical energy to spotlight and support positive change..."

- Theresa Kennedy, (it) Magazine

"Lead man Hunter Ackerman is fantastically charismatic and goes from impassioned vocalist to acoustic strumming bluesman to a rock & roll maniac who plays his own massive floor tom with an assortment of stuff he keeps in a holster strapped to his side. Thewhole band is as tight as Katy Perry’s tube top, combining catchy originals with awesome takes on legendary covers."

- James Tuverson, ShockBoxTV

"The sound is rock and roll with a soul and blues edge, a la the Black Keys, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, and Jet."

- Brenton Garen, Santa Monica Mirror

"The small price of admission to get in is well worth what you get seeing Hunter & The Dirty Jacks perform, the message they give, and the support you give to such an important cause. We need to focus on our community, and address the needs in our own backyard, instead of looking for someone else to solve our problems. The sense of community that fills Harvelle’s will definitely Service Your Soul."

- Daniel Garcia, Influentza

"Once in a while you hear a story about a band that just blows you away about how cool it is, you hope a coupla things happen: 1) people recognize its coolness and come out to support the band and its music and 2) it’s an inspiration to other bands regarding what they can do to raise awareness of their band while doing a solid for someone in need. So let me tell you just that kinda story, about rock band Hunter and The Dirty Jacks performin’ at Harvelle’s."

- James Tuverson, ShockBoxTV

"Feed your soul with rock 'n roll and help them feed the hungry while you get a payback in top notch entertainment. What could be better?"

- Theresa Kennedy, (it) Magazine

"Always seemingly on the verge of losing control, they channel all that reckless energy to keep a clean but explosive set. A blues, vintage sound, Hunter & The Dirty Jacks still keep their sound relevant, playing numerous originals and covering some great songs, all perfectly mixed together."

- Daniel Garcia, Influentza

"A cast of Los Angeles and Orange County-area musicians who have been playing locally and regionally for over 10 years apiece."

- Helga Gendell, The Argonaut

"A great rock show."

- Daniel Garcia, Influentza

"The Dirty Jacks put forth an extremely high energy, emotionally compelling performance coupled with a rare combination of soulful originals and tasty covers."

- Brenton Garen, Santa Monica Mirror
