The Jacks were born in the seedy Red River street rock-and-roll scene of Austin, Texas during the scorching summer of 2002. The band began as a pure instrumental surf rock group, albeit with a bit of an experimental bent that featured dark melodies, plenty of aggression, and a definite Texas cowboy flavor. After some line-up changes, the most significant being the addition of a permanent lead vocalist in the spring of 2003, the band has settled on a musical approach that preserves the best elements of their surf-cowboy roots. Surf rock instrumentals remain an essential part of The Jacks repertoire, although one might only hear a few during one of their intense live shows. Apparently, the band is sticking to their original goal of creating music 'you blast from your car speakers as you cruise a dusty Texas highway in a black '73 Mach I', only now you can sing along as well.
