The Jacks are a group of good friends who began by getting together on occasion to play some of their favorite music together. Over time those occasions became more frequent, the playing got better and the instruments got nicer. With the influence of string bands, americana rock, and southern rock, a handful songs were written. Those songs seemed to get a good reception so more songs were written and The Jacks began playing live shows in front of anyone who would listen. The Jacks appreciate all of the support and will try to win the hearts of all who hear their music.
Their first rehearsals were in a local park; something of singing outside, in summertime, for no one in particular, that speaks to the natural ease of our collective relationship with music” – remarks The Jayplayers, of their formation in 2013 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Their songwriting is unassumingly authentic, derived from a shared, somewhat unconscious viewpoint. It seems their process was one in the same – to not really have a process; to write without intention, merely recording song ideas as they overcame their minds. “Our songs are most simply commenting on the human condition; words and music in harmony, made to strike a chord in the hearts of many.” This Americana act, based around the songwriting of Keeley McCue and Chris Weidensaul, has developed from an acoustic duo into a full electric band set up as well. The recent inclusion of bassist Michael Broda and drummer Tyler Kollinok into the fold, has resulted in the live tracking of their debut album Glitter & Wine, which is available worldwide across all digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify etc.). Over the past three years, not only has their collection of songs grown into a full length album, but they have also gained great notoriety for their hundreds of live performances. They have moved from playing local eateries and area listening rooms, to nationally recognized venues such as Rockwood Music Hall and World Cafe Live. With their highly anticipated album and expanded band format, you will surely be hearing even more from The Jayplayers in the near future - so stay tuned!
