A-capella band, The House Jacks, have performed music from their five albums coast to coast in the USA and internationally all over Europe and Japan.

Biography

The House Jacks. They found it in the Yellow Pages under Heavy Equipment Rental: a ‘house jack’ is what you use when you want to move a house. Anyone who has 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 original Jacks met each other while singing in a cappella groups at their various colleges on the East Coast. They all moved to San Francisco to form the House Jacks in September 1991. Since then, there have been several membership changes, culminating in the tight ensemble showcased and loved today around the world. The House Jacks have headlined in many famous venues around the country, including The Bottom Line and The Bitter End (NYC), The Great American Music Hall (SF), The House of Blues (Boston), The Birchmere (Alexandria, VA), and The Iron Horse (Northampton, MA). In addition, they have begun to make waves in Europe, headlining at many well-known German venues, including: Spectaculum Mundi (Munich), Theater im Aegi (Hannover), and Café Schalotte (Berlin). The Jacks have also toured Japan. This year marks their 22nd tour through Germany and their 5th tour through Japan. The House Jacks have also had the pleasure to tour in Singapore & Italy. This October (2005) Europe get's a treat when The House Jacks visit France, Belgium and Germany.

The House Jacks have appeared with James Brown, Ray Charles, Jon Secada, LL Cool J, the Neville Brothers, President Bill Clinton, Crosby Stills and Nash, the Pointer Sisters, the Temptations, The Gap Band, Tower of Power, Starship, Run-DMC, and many others.
