Guitar trio jam rock at its raw basement best!! Sorry for the sound quality.

Mike Vertenten: Guitar/Vocals
Dan Neid: Bass/Vocals
Eric Schwartz: Drums/Vocals

By the time you hear this - we'll already be dead. These recording were made between 1994 and 1997.

Why this name?
Mike said it in the drive through at Wendy's. It was simple and upon further examination had a lot of different meanings.
Do you play live?
We haven't played together as a trio in 10 years. Currently Mikey V is MIA, Eric will do anything for the right price and Dan plays bass for Air This Side of Caution
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Without it, no one would ever hear our music. So blame the internet.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Sure. We would need to track down Mike. He disappeared into Chicago a few years ago. The
last time the 3 of us were together was in 1998 at Eric's wedding.
Band History:
JACK started in 1994 as a 6 piece group called Rain Session. The group included Dan Neid on bass and vocals, Eric Schwartz on guitar and vocals, Mike Vertenten on guitar and vocals, Linne Coursey on piano, Derrick Perry on Drums and Anne Malatesta on lead vocals. The latter three had all left by June 1994 and Dan, Mike and Eric went on to look for a drummer. After a month and one disasterous audition, Eric borrowed his neighbor's kit and took over drums. JACK was born.

Over the next two years the group jammed, wrote, practiced and honed their brand of lyrical, guitar-trio Jam rock . Only one gig was played, a party at Eric's. The group dissolved in 1996. While they never played out, they left behind countless hours of basement tapes.
Your influences?
It's all in there, man.
