Jumping Jack Flash
The members of Jumping Jack Flash are not entirely sure what it is about this music that causes such a reaction in audiences, but they see it on a nightly basis—they see it in the audience’s eyes, and on their faces. People rise to their feet and begin dancing, waving their arms in the air, singing along, but most of all– smiling! Soon the crowd is moving towards the stage, then packed up against it; some attempt to jump up on to the stage, while others lunge for one of the musicians.
JJF has performed at the elegant Winspear Performing Arts Center in Edmonton, Canada, the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, Ca., and at theaters, amphitheaters, festivals, and casinos all across North America; including in front of and audience of 14,000 fans in Mexicali. In 2015, JJF even performed at the famous west-coast theater the Belly-Up just three days before the actual Rolling Stones did!
