The House Jacks of San Francisco are the original “rock band without instruments.” Using nothing more than their five voices (and mouths), they deliver everything from blistering funk to screaming rock to heart-melting ballads for their ever-growing legions of fans. Hip A Cappella.

THE HOUSE JACKS - A Rock Band without Instruments

"They sing up a storm in perfect a cappella harmony… Their music is as current as tomorrow’s news."– San Francisco Chronicle

San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013

The House Jacks are a pioneering a cappella rock band whose music has been the soundtrack for NBC's "The Sing-Off," ESPN's "Monday Night Football," and the 2012 Sony sound system demo for Ford automobiles. For the first time, they will take stage at the Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts at the Osher Marin JCC on Saturday February 23, 2013 @ 8pm
