Jack's Bio

JJack Was born in Massachusetts in 1976 and started playing guitar with his friends at 9 years old. Drawn initially to punk, hardcore and metal, he and his friends started trying to learn all of the songs by their favorite bands.  As he got older and his music tastes changed so did his playing and most of his influences from rock, punk and metal to jazz and Spanish classical can be heard in his playing today. He played locally in Boston with prog and rock bands until 2003 when he joined Bayside where he still remains as the lead guitar player.
