Hunter & The Dirty Jacks are California-Crafted Rock & Roll – like smoky whiskey with phosphorescent ice cubes in a blues-tinted glass. Led by frontman Hunter Ackerman and flanked by guitar players Carmelo Bonaventura and Jon Siembieda, with Aaron Barnes grooving the bottom end on bass and Brian Lara keeping the rootsy tribal beats, this band has been packing roadhouses and clubs in every town from San Diego to Seattle to Denver. Recently signed to the world’s leading independent record label, Spectra Music Group, the album “Single Barrel” is playing on 400+ radio stations, holds 14 television licensing deals including Discovery Networks, MTV, and E! Network, while live the band has been dazzling musical reviewers both nationally and internationally with its “uncompromising energy and theatrical dominance” (Broke Ass Stuart) “befitting of a band that follows the legacy of the Rolling Stones and the Black Crowes.” (jambandsonline).
