The House Jacks
Performing Saturday Evening
The House Jacks is "the original rock band without instruments" (SF Chronicle). The band's pioneering innovations laid the groundwork for the current a cappella renaissance. Millions of people listened to The House Jacks worldwide as the sound of The Sing-Off, NBC’s hit live a cappella competition. Their jingles for radio stations in Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco have been heard by over 1.5 million listeners.
Since its inception in September 1991, The House Jacks have performed over 3,000 shows. Their riveting performances, groundbreaking recordings and award-winning songwriting have energized and inspired live audiences in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Brazil, Sri Lanka, France, Canada, Puerto Rico, Italy, the Netherlands, Singapore and Japan. They’ve performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the World Expo. They’ve appeared in Rolling Stone, on CNN and Monday Night Football (ESPN). They are featured on Sony Sound Systems in Ford vehicles and have worked with corporate clients from Coca-Cola through Verizon. They’ve shared the stage with some of the biggest names in live entertainment, including Ray Charles, James Brown, Train, LL Cool J, the Neville Brothers, Crosby Stills and Nash, the Pointer Sisters, Live, Nia Peeples, Johnny Clegg, 5 Blind Boys of Alabama, the Temptations, George Carlin, Pam Tillis, The Four Tops, The Gap Band, Tower of Power, Starship, Jon Secada, Run-DMC, and many others.
The Oakland Tribune calls them “A battery of sounds that make mincemeat of the traditional limits of the human voice…a bonafide rock band …” Songwriter’s Monthly says “Prepare to be blown away!…This is some of the best music around, period!” The New York Times calls their vocal percussion “Astonishingly precise!” and San Francisco Magazine says “The House Jacks serve up one of the most entertaining live acts around.”
