Stage – Three Bad Jacks @ U St Music Hall

Three Bad Jacks @ U St Music Hall

This past Tuesday, I was among the lucky few who got to catch Three Bad Jacks, playing in DC for the first time in years. The rockabilly trio from Woodland Hills, CA played a high-energy set to a very small but enthusiastic audience with nary a complaint, having a very gracious attitude to all in attendance.

Kicking off the set at 8pm sharp with a dirty, bluesy jam, The Jacks ripped through their catalog and then some, playing a variety of covers such as Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues (which started out in the traditional style then ended as an amped-up, high speed, punk-rock version of the classic), Motörhead’s Ace of Spades (which they recorded for their 2005 album Crazy in the Head), and Gene Vincent’s Be-Bop-A-Lu-La.

They closed the night with Noah and Jacob’s Song, a heartfelt number from their latest album, Pictures & Memories From Home.

Even thought their set didn’t even reach the hour and thirty minute mark, they played their hearts out, and their love for the music and good humor shone through. Three Bad Jacks is a band not to be missed and are sure to get you moving and leave you smiling.
