Founded in 1991, The House Jacks instantly redefined what people thought of as “vocal music.” Combining their virtuosic harmonies with spectacular stagecraft, these world-class performers continue to push the boundaries of the human voice, thrilling audiences around the world.
Founder Deke Sharon sought to create the first “rock band without instruments,” employing a deep bass and a beatboxer as a vocal rhythm section and developing various extended vocal techniques, coupled with innovative arranging to recreate the idiomatic and sonic impact of pop music – all with the human voice! The House Jacks took the vocal music world by storm and have been at the forefront of the contemporary a cappella scene ever since.
