A five-man rock band without instruments, the House Jacks offer a "no-holds barred" a cappella style that will obliterates your preconceptions about the limits of the human voice. Austin Willacy, Deke Sharon, Wes Carroll, Roo Ahuja, and newest member, Antonio Medrano, run the gamut from tender love ballads to mile-a-minute funk, complete with mind-blowing vocal percussion and riffs torn straight out of a whammy-bar guitar.

Taking their name from the Heavy Equipment section of the Yellow Pages (a "house jack" is what you use to move a residence), the jax got to know each other on the collegiate a cappella circuit of the late 1980s. Since those days, the quintet has completed several world tours, gained thousands of devoted fans, won numerous awards, and recorded six albums including their latest, the live CD Get Down Mr. President, recorded during their most recent European tour.
