House JacksThe human voice is a terrible thing to waste – and the House Jacks make superb use of theirs. The New York Times praised their “astonishingly precise vocal drumming.” The Oakland Tribune praised their “amazing voices, impressive arrangements, and dynamic stage presence.” A rock band without instruments, these five amazing musicians perform in an a cappella style that obliterates all preconceptions about what a voice can do. Hard-driving drumbeats, mind-bending guitar riffs, exquisite harmonies – the House Jacks do it all, from tender ballads to churning funk, from pop classics to soulful originals. They know how to make beautiful music, and they know how to entertain.

The band started on the college a cappella circuit in the late 1980s and went on to tour much of the world. They’ve played Carnegie Hall and the House of Blues, and been featured on NBC’s The Sing-Off and ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Their albums and songs have won six Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, including best album for Unbroken and Level, and best original song for “This Man’s Pride” and “Red Dress.” The band includes co-founder and San Francisco native Deke Sharon, Freight board member Austin Willacy, Nick Gerard, John Pointer, and Elliot Robinson. A house jack is a piece of heavy equipment used to lift a house, and these guys are a great bet to lift the Freight on Saturday night!
