Sunday, May 27th: 8PM
Tickets- $15 in advance/ $20 at the door.
And so the evolution of the Jack Grace sound continues. A consummate live performer, lyricist, singer and guitarist, Jack is at the helm of a powerhouse band that plays kick the can with any musical genre that it stumbles across. Intelligence, humor and unpredictable cross-pollinations of musical categories await. But don't take our word for it.
His upcoming recording, The Money's Gone Away, builds on the momentum gained by the previous release of Drinking Songs for Lovers and continues Jack's evolution as a performer and writer.
Alan Young of the New York Press raved, "what sets his songs apart from rest of the country or alt-country scene is his laugh-out-loud, absurdist wit. Not only is this a great party album and a great driving album but it's also very smart and very funny." Kevin Canfield, writing for the New York Times, exclaimed, "Make no mistake: Jack Grace is an old-fashioned country musician." Except that he isn't.
His band rocks too hard to be country. It always has. And the band members come from all walks of life: jazz, rock, country and, well, other. Bassist, vocalist and wife Daria (Melomane, Pre-war Ponies) keeps the rhythm going with the rotating drummers, Russ Meissner, Jason "J-Bird" Bowman and Bruce Martin (Tom Tom Club). Horns are provided by J. Walter Hawkes, Rob Henke and "Tuba Joe" Exley.
