Hunter & The Dirty Jacks comprise a virtual all-star cast of Los Angeles and Orange County-area musicians that have been playing locally and regionally for over ten years apiece. Fronted by lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Hunter Ackerman, and anchored by Jon Siembieda and Carmelo Bonaventura on guitar, Aaron Barnes on bass, and Brian Lara on drums, the Dirty Jacks put forth an extremely high energy, emotionally compelling performance coupled with a rare combination of soulful originals and tasty covers. The sound is rock and roll with a bluesy core, ala the Black Keys, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, and Jet. The band is very seasoned for all players being in the late 20s and early 30s. The Dirty Jacks debuted at House of Blues Sunset Strip on 9/29/12 to a resounding success and haven’t looked back since. In just a few short months, the band has gone on a tour of Northern California, set up a second tour in June 2013, a third leg in November 2013, and also has established a critically-acclaimed weekly residency that started at the beginning of 2013 at Harvelle’s in Santa Monica (the oldest blues club in Southern California), where all of the admission proceeds and a portion of drink sales benefit feeding the hungry in Santa Monica, as well as teaching foster children music.
