"A battery of sounds that make mincemeat
of the traditional limits of the human voice...
a bonafide rock band ..."
-- Oakland Tribune
"Prepare to be blown away! The House Jacks have more potential than Boyz II Men and the Backstreet Boys combined. This is some of the best music around, period!"
-- Songwriter's Monthly
The House Jacks of San Francisco are the original "rock band without instruments." Using nothing more than their five voices (and mouths), they deliver everything from blistering funk to screaming rock to heart-melting ballads for their ever-growing legions of fans. These pioneering musicians have performed thousands of shows and have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music. Their radio spots for Rick Dees Top 40 have been heard by 50 million listeners on 330 U.S. radio stations and 50 other stations around the world. Their jingles for radio stations in Los Angeles and San Francisco have been heard by over 1.5 million listeners. Their music can also be heard in places as far-reaching as movie soundtracks and computer operating systems.
A "house jack" is what you use when you want to move a house. Anyone who's seen them perform live will tell you that the name is appropriate. "Raise the roof" takes on a whole new meaning with the House Jacks.
The House Jacks have performed thousands of shows at Stadiums (from Fenway to Candlestick), Theaters/Clubs (from Carnegie Hall to the House of Blues), Colleges (from Dartmouth to Stanford), Festivals (from The World Expo to the Black and White Ball)in locations around the US and internationally, including France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Japan and Singapore where they have appeared with Ray Charles, James Brown, Train, LL Cool J, the Neville Brothers, Bill Clinton, Crosby Stills and Nash, the Pointer Sisters, Live, Nia Peeples, Johnny Clegg, 5 Blind Boys of Alabama, Colin Powell, the Temptations, George Carlin, Pam Tillis, The Four Tops, The Gap Band, Tower of Power, Starship, Jon Secada, Run-DMC, and many others.
