Jack Grelle: An Evening of Songs
Jacks willingness to travel around genre-lines is a testament to the urgency and restlessness of his artistry. This rambling spirit has brought him to over 13 countries and 3 continents with a tour schedule that averages 150 shows a year. He has shared the stage with Joe Ely, Billy Joe Shaver, Chris Stapleton, and Pokey Lafarge. LaFarge, who has personally invited Grelle to open shows on numerous occasions, referred to Jack as a Midwestern poet and a timeless Renaissance man. Jack has also enjoyed the opportunity to sit in with Dale Watson and his Lonestars.

Jacks songs range in topic from celebrating the life of his recently-deceased grandmother to romance in South America, and he shows an integrity and courage that mirror his punk rock upbringing by tackling such topics as freedom in femininity and the tragedy of police killings that plague the African-American community. Jack is a strong, idealistic artist who does not accept limitations. These qualities recently led him to step outside of his normal role as he assembled a backing band to tour the Midwest with Lavender Country, the music of Patrick Haggerty, a life-long gay rights activist who made the worlds first gay country album. Grelles drive continually leads him to new challenges, and he consistently exceeds expectations. Jack last appeared at The Focal Point in 2015 when he shared the stage with Ryan Koenig when opening for The Yellow-Bellied Sap Suckers. We are thrilled to welcome Jack for his debut solo performance in our listening room.
