Make sure you don't miss the party when the House Jacks blow the roof off the Freight with tonight's massive 20th anniversary concert, featuring current members and band alumni performing hits from the band's two-decade history. Current members Deke Sharon (co-founder of the group), Austin Willacy, Troy Horne, John Pointer, and Nick Gerard host an astounding lineup of "Jacks past" including Tristan Bishop, Andrew Chaikin, Marty Mahoney, Bert Okpokwasili, Rob Penn, Wes Carroll, Garth Kravits, Roopak Ahuja, Antonio Medrano, and Jake Moulton. Wow!

A rock band without instruments, the House Jacks offer a "no-holds barred" a cappella style that obliterates all preconceptions about the limits of the human voice. The group runs the gamut from tender love ballads to mile-a-minute funk, complete with mind-blowing vocal percussion and riffs torn straight out of a whammy-bar guitar.

Taking their name from the Heavy Equipment section of the Yellow Pages (a "house jack" is what you use to move a residence), the band got to know each other on the collegiate a cappella circuit of the late 1980s. Since those days, they have completed several world tours, gained thousands of devoted fans, won numerous awards, and recorded seven albums including their latest, Level.

With their music occupying places as far-flung as movie soundtracks, radio station jingles, and computer operating systems, the House Jacks recently became the first a cappella group to be featured on ESPN's Monday Night Football.
