A Pioneering A Cappella Rock Band

The House Jacks offer more than an evening of great vocal performance; they bring a laughter-filled evening of amazing music that will leave you begging for more.

Deemed "the original rock band without instruments" by the San Francisco Chronicle, they create powerful original music using only their 5 voices.  The band’s pioneering innovations laid the groundwork for the current a cappella renaissance, and their music can be heard in the movie "Pitch Perfect," on the television show "The Sing Off" and on radio stations around the world.

"They sing up a storm in perfect a cappella harmony… Their music is as current as tomorrow’s news.” – San Francisco Chronicle

'Til Dawn 
Youth in Arts’ award winning a capella group opens the evening.  Comprised entirely of high school students ranging in age from 13 to 18, this group is an inspiration for many young people, using a contemporary song list to make a capella accessible to audiences of all ages.   Til Dawn Director Austin Willacy is a member of The House Jacks.

The House Jacks of San Francisco are the original “rock band without instruments.” Using nothing more than their five voices (and mouths), they deliver everything from blistering funk to screaming rock to heart-melting ballads for their ever-growing legions of fans. These pioneering musicians have performed thousands of shows and have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music. Their radio spots for Rick Dees Top 40 have been heard by 50 million listeners on 330 U.S. radio stations and 50 other stations around the world. Their jingles for radio stations in Los Angeles and San Francisco have been heard by over 1.5 million listeners. Their music can also be heard in places as far-reaching as movie soundtracks and computer operating systems.

A "house jack" is what you use when you want to move a house. Anyone who’s seen them perform live will tell you that the name is appropriate. "Raise the roof" takes on a whole new meaning with the House Jacks.
