Savannah Jack - What A Party!

Savannah Jack - What A Party!


High energy, tight three part harmonies, extensive song list of quality originals (many of which have been recorded by other artists) and covers from three decades representing country, classic and southern rock music. Our unique ability to entertain is a constant remark we hear from our audiences.


Hard work… determination… sacrifice… those three terms aptly define what Savannah Jack (SJ) is all about. Years of hard work and a determination to succeed at the highest level has sharpened the skills of and paved the way for Don Gatlin, Mike Ulvila, and Jay Darby. Each had fronted bands in Pennsylvania, Montana, and Florida respectively before getting together in 2004 to create an incredible sound with a concentration on extraordinary three part harmony. The sacrifice evolved when each recognized the immense talent of the other two and cast aside individual aspirations and dreams to form Savannah Jack.

Trying to describe a Savannah Jack performance can be a challenging task. Joe Gercio, Elvis Presley’s long time musical and orchestra director, calls SJ “the best band in country music today… the “Alabama” of the 21st Century”. While that is certainly a compliment of the highest order, it only partially describes the abilities of this amazing trio. Although Savannah Jack is based out of Nashville, their live show is tailored to fit the needs of virtually any audience and ranges from straight ahead country music to southern rock to classic rock, focusing on the super groups of 70ties and 80ties. In fact, their versions of covers of such diverse bands as The Eagles, The Doobie Brothers, Exile, and The Gatlin Brothers are so spot on that standing ovations occur frequently during and always after their concerts. SJ feels equally at home whether sharing the stage in a huge arena as a frequent opening act for the legendary Kenny Rogers, performing in a convention center as the entertainment for a corporate party, rocking it out at the famous Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, or keeping the dance floor full in a night club, such as the famed Whiskey River in Macon, Georgia. SJ can also scale down to a three piece acoustic show and still deliver a high quality rendition of their full band concert in a more subdued and intimate setting.

In addition to possessing the tightest harmony of any group to come along in recent memory, SJ has a dynamic stage show which infuses world class vocals with a high level of energy and showmanship, resulting in an unforgettable musical experience. It is clearly obvious that the members of Savannah Jack love making music and are having a blast, whether they are performing in a small venue in Nashville or playing in front of thousands of people in sold out amphitheatres across the country.

If you haven’t heard them yet, better get on board and get ready for a ride. If you don’t, you don’t know “Jack” . . . SAVANNAH JACK
