The JACK CITY BLUES BAND consists of talented musicians that showcase and combine boogie, jump, swing and powerhouse blues into an exciting sound that makes it difficult to sit still and not move your feet. This most definitely defines the JACK CITY BLUES BAND.
This group is a culmination of MULTI AWARD-WINNING musicians, collecting awards at the Local, State and National Levels, including Band of the Year honors for the Country Music Associations of America.
Two of the band members are recent Western Swing HALL OF FAME inductees who were honored for their musicianship, and for their significant contributions, dedication and commitment to the preservation and promotion of western swing music.
These same two band members were approached by CREEDENCE CLEARWATER producer Russ Gary. This meeting led to an original recording project at the House of Blues Studios in Los Angeles, California. Track Number 9, Roll of the Dice, was co-written with Russ Gary.
Other credits include Show Opener for numerous National Acts including the Marshall Tucker Band, Asleep at the Wheel, Juice Newton, Steve Earle and many more; Infomercial performances, and live radio and television broadcasts. Their original songs have received airplay in the United States as well as Europe.
The desire of the JACK CITY BLUES BAND is to touch people's lives and make them happy through their music.
Like the man said, "If you don't know the BLUES, you don't know JACK."
"……this band has won more awards than I can count. Now, it’s late at night while I’m listening to their CD for the fourth time and I should be sleeping. But this music makes me want to pick up my partner and dance some sort of dance I haven’t learned yet.”
“There is no doubt that this music makes you feel happy. The harmonies are full and the feel is pure U.S.A. The vocals are uplifting, the spirit is high.” Looker Magazine
