Original Jack

Original Jack are a four piece original rock band from Basingstoke, we created this band from our covers band of many years called Jackhammer, we wanted to progress from playing popular rock covers to being a band that creates original and exciting music and we like to think we are on the way to achieving that!

Our songs have a solid foundation based on our love for rock n roll music from the `50s` to current times, between us we have many years playing experience as a base for our songs which are developed over time rather than written in a genre specific and one dimensional style, we often modify the songs for a bit of diversity, we believe that there is always room for a bit of variety and that a song does not have to stay the same forever, the song lyrics can be witty,sarcastic, thoughtful and based on real life themes that affect everyone, we definitely DONT do love songs! The sound of our songs ranges from heavy rock to pshychedelic rock to punk/new wave to pop to reggae to rhythm and blues to rock n roll, its whatever sounds good for the lyrics with something different thrown in for good measure.

Playing Basingstoke live will be a big experience for us as it is the kind of gig we have been aiming for since we started writing our own songs!
