"Incredible show - 6/6"

Den energisk rocka elektronikaen er nemlig et forrykende fyrverkeri i seg selv. De to trommisene gjør langt, langt mer enn å dælje løs på diverse trommer og cymbaler. På en nesten laidback måte formelig spiller de to funky og fengende musikk med gudbenådet groove og utfyller hverandre med perkussiv perfeksjon.

Stage-diving hører med

Den ene veteranen, trommisen Tarjej Strøm, kommuniserer strålende med publikum, mens den andre, superhjernen og DJ’en Erlend Sellevold alias Ralph Myerz, holder seg mystisk bak sin karakteristiske maske og sin gedigne DJ-arbeidsbenk. Dynamikken funker perfekt, og en el-gitarist og en el-bassist gjør The Jack Herren band til et fullverdig og formidabelt herreband. Man kunne alltids ønske seg en vokalist, men Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren Band er nå engang et rent instrumentalt orkester som spiller fletta av de fleste – selv liggende på rygg under gjentatte stage-diving-utflukter blant publikum.

Ellevill dans og jubel

Lørdagens headliner er nok en skalp i beltet til Aronnesrocken – vi snakker tross alt om et prisbelønnet band med stort platesalg og betydelig konsertsuksess også langt utenfor landets grenser. I Alta har bandet to sagnomsuste spillejobber på Smutthullet og City Scene på samvittigheten, noe som har bidratt til at de har en aldri så liten og trofast fanskare i Nordlysbyen. På sletta danser hundrevis av publikummere mer eller mindre ellevilt til det symfoniske stormløpet som er rikelig akkompagnert ikke bare av et saftig lysshow, men også av flammende fyrverkeri (ja, nå mener jeg det bokstavelig), servert av Altas sjefspyroman Gjermund Abrahamsen Wik. Holy Smoke! - Altaposten 2015

"Wireless London"

Ralph Myerz and the Jack Herren Band's off-kilter performance injected some life into the inert crowd. Their berserk set, laden with heavy basslines and pounding rhythms, had wit, style and self-conscious humour. It was also littered with festival games and crowd participation: at one stage they recorded the audience, improvising with the tapes. - The Guardian


"RMJHB - 2015"

After playing precious few concerts since 2009, Ralph Myerz & The Jack Herren Band recently performed Bergen, Norway for the first time in eight years. Under the Radar sent Thor Møller to make sure the band hasn't lost their touch. Check out his gallery of images here. - Under The Radar Mag

Bio

RMJHB is a band from the same city and same musical scene as Røykopp, Kings of Convinience, Datarock and Annie who all have in common that they started getting international attention from the infamous Tellé label´s 7" series.

They have released 3 albums as a band. 

Band producer and songwriter Ralph Myerz has also released 3 solo albums.

In total a sale of 400 000 albums worldwide and 200 000 singles has been reached due to extensive touring all over the world.

After a small break where Ralph moved to US to folllow his love for hiphop and to work with people like Snoop Dogg, George Clinton, Nipsey Hussle, Dogg Pound, Devin the Dude and many more, the band is now back on track and ready to release their fourth album and of course to continue to tour the world.

After the break Ralph Myerz has won the Norwegian Grammy for best electronic album 2013, currently the only Norwegian artist to have a platinum album in 2015 so far.
