Jack Gregori – the Human Country Jukebox (Free Art on 8th Event)
July 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Country Music. Third Thursday!
With over 750 shows under his belt, you might call Jack Gregori the man who brought country music to the buttoned-up bar scene of Washington, DC. And while Jack has now honed a well-deserved reputation for genuine Texas-influenced country and western musical style (and attitude), his musical path began far away from the cradle of country music in Texas and Nashville.
In 2015, Gregori performed on NBC’s The Voice to an audience of over 15 million viewers and was selected by the judges to advance on the hit show, eventually ending-up on “Team Adam.”
Working alongside the likes of Grammy Award-nominee Ellie Goulding and three-time Grammy Award-winner Adam Levine, Jack’s charismatic baritone put him firmly on the country music map as a rising star to watch. Gregori’s multiple performances on the international hit show resulted in the eventual recording and release of two singles: Feeling Alright – the legendary Dave Mason song made most famous by Joe Cocker’s 1969 rendition – as well as Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire that were both released in the fall of 2015 through Republic Records (a division of UMG Recording). The national exposure has not swelled the native New Hampshirite’s head, however; Jack can still be found each week performing at his long-running residency in Washington DC’s favorite local bar, Madam’s Organ. Jack has plans to announce a 2016 National Tour in addition to a self-titled album release.
This event takes place on the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market (716 Monroe St NE), just steps away from Brookland-CUA Metro (Red Line).
The rain location for this event will be Monroe Street Market Artist Studio, 716 Monroe St NE, Washington, DC 20017
