Meet local band Jack9

Self described as “pretty straightforward rock/Americana,” Oteen-based Jack9 is brothers James and John Humphries (their father, Don is also a musician and songwriter) with Brian Wardrep on drums and Mike McHugh on bass. The Humphries brothers spent time in Nashville and Los Angeles before heading back east to be closer to family. Writes John, “James has been writing some killer songs and they have been in the studio working up a three-song EP.”

Jack9 has had a Wednesday residency at MoDaddy’s throughout September. There are still two more chances to catch them there (9 p.m. on Sept. 21 and 28, free), as well as The Root Bar on the Saturday, Oct. 1 and at Jack of the Wood on Friday, Nov. 4.
