Biography

"Jack Mack and the Heart Attack has been LA's leading proponent of Rock'n'Soul music for a long time. They are one of my all time favorite bands.”
- Glenn Frey, the Eagles.

Jack Mack are described as "extraordinary musicians and dynamic performers”. This 7-10 piece Rockin' Soul band has lived three decades as one of America’s most dynamic and insurmountable bands. They've circled the globe performing concerts, clubs, festivals, major corporate events and some of the world's most outrageous private affairs for nearly three decades. Their individual style of high energy R&B /Soul music, a combination of the Memphis Stax Volt sound and James Brown, has garnered an ever expanding and loyal following, and cemented their legendary reputation.

The Jack Mack entertainment brand has oozed into every facet of show biz, from their incredible live performances, studio recordings, film and TV music placements and the ever-constant shoulder rubbing with celebrities.

Known for nearly three decades as 'Jack Mack and the Heart Attack', (now shortened to “Jack Mack), the band is widely known as one of the premier Soul, R&B, party bands in the world. You can find their infamous horn section, “The Heart Attack Horns”, included on countless collections and numerous award winning recording artists albums worldwide. But what the band is most known for is their solid, energetic and stellar live performances.

The All-Star line-up currently features founder/guitarist Andrew Kastner (Chaka Kahn, Natalie Cole, Barry White), sax player Bill Bergman (Bonnie Raitt, Glenn Frey), singer Mark Campbell (Huey Lewis, Jackson Browne), trumpeter Les Lovitt (Grammy winners Woody Herman, Herbie Hancock and No Doubt), bassist Tim Scott (Eric Clapton, Tower of Power), drummer Les Falconer (Keb Mo, Tony Braxton) and keyboardist Jeff Paris (Ringo Starr, Keb' Mo' and Dave Stewart of Eurythmics). The band augments their line up with singer Tasha Taylor, daughter of the infamous soul singer, Johnny Taylor, singer Will Rize (Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz ), and the incomparable, gorgeous and talented identical twin combination of Paula and Pamela Mattioli, whose records (under the name Gypsy Queen) were produced by John Lennon’s producer, Jack Douglas.

Until that release Jack Mack will be in full creative mode, writing a brand new package of Raw, Soulful, and Heartfelt tunes will be the plan. Jack Mack’s history of digging into the roots of Stax, the funk of the Godfather, and the grease of the Soul Masters, will inspire the band to record a collection of songs only a group with decades under their belt can achieve. First off the block will be their first “Greatest Hits 1982-2009”, which will also include a bonus Christmas/Holiday track; Next, their entire catalog of every performance filmed and recorded since 1981, will be digitized and available on the band’s site, in addition to You Tube, and all the major networks.
