ABOUT

My band, Absolutely Jack, plays 1970's pop (tune list below). This project is aimed at the corporate events and private parties markets, not bars. I have been playing live music for over 30 years and am very committed to putting on an excellent show. It's not a tribute band, but we will still try to get close to the sound and spirit of the tunes.

Website is absolutelyjack.ca. We're also on Twitter at twitter.com/absolutelyjack.

A sample of our set list is below.

We're looking for a keyboard player who enjoys rehearsing as much as playing. This should not feel like a chore. It should be fun! Ideally, once the COVID 19 social isolation thing is over we will get together weekly or minimum 3 times a month, to go through 3 sets as efficiently as possible. This follows the golden rule of practicing at home in order to be ready for rehearsals, in order to be ready for gigs. We will be rehearsing in the Milton area. You should also be interested in partial band rehearsals, since all practice is good practice. It's important to enjoy each other's company and enjoy the rehearsal time - this always reflects well on stage.

Here are some of the tunes we are doing:

Summer Breeze, Seals & Crofts
Sausalito Summer Night, Diesel
Brandy You’re a Fine Girl, Looking Glass
Long Train Runnin’, Doobie Brothers
Lido Shuffle, Boz Scaggs
Do It Again, Steely Dan
