A little wheeling and dealing at the crossroads, a quick slap to an upright bass and a smokin’ beat. Add to the mix the guitar chops of Elvis Suissa and Three Bad Jacks music comes in to stretch the borders of rock. Three Bad Jacks are the bastard sons of rock and roll greats like Elvis Presley, Joe Strummer, Johnny Cash and Joey Ramone. This full throttle trio fuses the best parts of rock, punk and rockabilly into a unique sound that defies any label or category.
Three Bad Jacks are an unstoppable force. They play consistently to sold-out crowds across the U.S. They have opened for bands from Joe Strummer to Dwight Yoakam, from Social Distortion to Bouncing Souls. Three Bad Jacks consistently draw on their home turf of Southern California at venues such as House of Blues, The Knitting Factory and The Galaxy Theatre as well as festivals such as Hootenanny.
Three Bad Jacks have received a well-deserved reputation for a fantastic live show in support of their 1999 release, “Made Of Stone”, the Hellbound Train EP in 2002 and their most recent release, “Crazy in the Head”. The three releases along with their twenty separate T-shirt designs, stickers and other merchandise items are strong sellers in traditional retail outlets and at shows.
Most recently, Three Bad Jacks secured two songs in a major motion picture that is slated for release in the summer of 2007. "Wanted: Undead or Alive" starring Chris Kattan (Saturday Night Live) and James Denton (Desparate Houswives) will feature the songs "Hellbound Train" and "Crazy In The Head". Three Bad Jacks is also being featured on rehearsals.com which is the Internet arm of famed Center Staging Musical Productions.
Three Bad Jacks currently hold endorsements with Thrust Custom Drums (for whom the drummer will appear in print ads in 2007) and Ultimate Ears in-ear monitors.
