The House Jacks
House Jacks Happy New Year!
Many of you know that The House Jacks has a Japanese tribute band called The House Dust. Well, last December, House Dust member Tanino Hiroyuki happened to be on vacation in San Francisco, and came to our Freight show in Berkeley on December 5th. This was a major treat for him and for us, and we even brought Tanino on stage to have him sing "Bam!", which he totally rocked! Much love to all of The House Dust, and we look forward to meeting all of them the next time we tour in Japan.

After ending the year right at home at The Freight & Salvage, we're kicking off 2009 at our other favorite Bay Area place to play: our lovely Throckmorton Theatre. In a recent crazy flurry of mad songwriting and rehearsing, in addition to the two songs we premiered at The Freight, we've got at least two additional songs in the works to premier at this show! Hot diggity dog!

If you're a regular reader of our newsletter, you know that we're into food. So when Elgin Community College built a culinary school right next to the music department, and then asked us to spend a couple days teaching workshops to the students capped of with a dinner concert in a fantastic new theater and food made by burgeoning master chefs, it was a no brainer! If you're a Jacks fan and live anywhere within 2 states of the Chicago area, this is one show you can't miss!
