This Ain’t Yo Mama’s A Cappella Group! With the influence of hip hop, R&B, rock, and world beat, and with singers now imitating the sound of percussion, guitars, horns, and electric bass, a cappella music has hit the mainstream and shot up the charts The House Jacks’ music has been the soundtrack for NBC’s The Sing-Off, ESPN’s Monday Night Football, and their arrangements have been used for the smash hit movie Pitch Perfect. The House Jacks have performed with the likes of Ray Charles, James Brown, Train, LL Cool J, Jay Leno, and Crosby Stills and Nash, and at venues including Carnegie Hall, Candlestick Park, The World Expo, and The House of Blues.
An added treat: at each performance, The House Jacks take audience requests – if, and only if, they are for songs never rehearsed. Improvising a Cajun-Reggae blend of “Bohemian Rhapsody” (think Bob Marley yodeling) or a Middle Eastern rap mix of “Like a Virgin,” The House Jacks leave audiences howling with laughter and screaming for more.
