THE JACK GRACE BAND
“The man slings more than a few sparks from his big,
hollow-body Gibson... what sets his songs apart from the rest of the
country or alt-country scene is his laugh-out-loud, absurdist wit.”
Jack’s form of experimental country art rock has been compared to everything from Frank Zappa to early Johnny Cash. Five album releases and tracks featured in the films Super Troopers and Beer Fest have earned Jack a growing following and a steady hum of praise. His most recent release, Drinking Songs For Lovers, features some fine country numbers, but he added mariachi horns to give them a Latin flavor, inspired by his yearly pilgrimage to Tulum, Mexico, where he likes to write songs on the beach.
