Jack Luna "DA HAT" has been singing and writing songs in the greater San Francisco Bay Area since the early 80's. His New Orleans jazz style ranges from sultry blues to swing'n boogie woogie.
Well known around San Francisco's North Beach clubs, his collection of hats and stylish vintage attire has earned him the name "Jack Da Hat" given to him by North Beach's own icon Carol Doda while performing at one of her shows.
His singing style is like no other. Some say a cross between Louie Armstrong, Tom Waits, Leon Redbone and Louis Jordan. Weather it be a classical standard or original jazz tune, Jack makes it his own with his distinctive sound.
Influence by Peter (Pop) Walsh and the Stompy Jones band, Boz Scaggs, Louis Jordan and Fats Domino's New Orleans style boogie woogie, Jack delivers an unforgettable sound that will keep you wanting more.

Elena De la Rosa, James Campbell, Maddaline Edstrom, Gary Neuman, Steven Dukes, Jason Martineau, Jeff Sanford, Gina Harris, Chuck Bennett, Waldo Carter, Larry Kirkish and many other well known Bay Area musicians.
