Handsome Jack at the Taylor Theater @ Taylor Theater on Kenan Campus
Oct 26 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

October 26 | SOLD OUT! Handsome Jack will perform at the Taylor Theater on for a Halloween themed party.

 “Some people call it a vibe and some people call it a groove. We call it boogie soul. It’s the sound of Handsome Jack ..” is how the band describes their sound. The group hails from Lockport, and began as a blues garage rock band. More recently, they’ve developed their sound into a natural soulful boogie that remains rooted in raw blues. They’ve toured nationally, and internationally, recently returning from their first European tour in promotion of their latest album, “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright”.

Handsome Jack, is comprised of Jamison Passuite, lead vocals and guitar, Joe Verdonselli on bass and backup vocals and Benjamin Hayes on drums, with the horn section including Luke Goetz on baritone saxophone, Tom Standford on tenor saxaphone and Tony Flaminio on alto saxaphone. The show will be filmed by videographer Nate Chateaux, with Neil Brodfuehrer running and recording sound.

Costumes encouraged.
