Jack Gregori & the Human Country Jukebox (Free Art on 8th Event)

May 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

| $Free

Country Music. Third Thursday!

Front man Jack Gregori grew up singing and playing whatever musical instruments were around him.  “I got hooked when I was a kid in the 80’s and watched The Blues Brothers movie. That opened it up for me and I haven’t stopped since.”  Eventually, Jack started performing at open mic nights.  By 2010, he had picked up some local musicians, beginning the evolution into the Human Country Jukebox band. Since then, the band has performed well over a hundred times, mainly in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. Jack himself recently appeared as a contestant on The Voice.

The name Human Country Jukebox actually refers to Jack himself.  He’s memorized more than 200 country-western hits. Shout out the name of any song at one of their shows, and you’ll discover that HCJ can wing anything.

Taking requests and interacting with the audience is a signature of every HCJ performance. Audiences can expect a different show every time, filled with creative improvisations and reinterpretations of classic country tunes. Just don’t yell out Sweet Home Alabama.

PLUS: Learn the Texas Two-Step with Ben Pagac & Katarina Ranum!
