Formed in 1994 by Dave Noren, Bad Jack originally featured Troy Castellano, Kevin Fransen and Darrel Aulrich, concentrating on southern and hard rock with a huge party atmosphere. Instant success followed as they tore up the MN music scene.
In 1996 the line up changed with the addition of Lyle Maurico, Peter X and Brad Foss along with short stays with great musicians such as Dale Wheeler, Trent Bolt, Spinny, and Darrin H.. The song selection and show stayed true and the band stayed rocking up to 2001.
After the release of their CD "The Sons of Anacreon" the band decided to take a break and Dave,Pete,Lyle and Brad went to play in separate bands, including "To The Core", "Bones Gang", and "Aultimate Ozzy".
After an almost 10 year absence, Dave Noren with the help of Matt Whaley from "To The Core" reformed Bad Jack adding past members Lyle and Pete.
Many a show, and many a Bad Jack night at the "Fort".... Lyle found his long lost love, and brought his blazing guitar work to Georgia...
Matt and Dave tricked Larry to come hang out one night, and he hasn't left yet. Larry Loftus of Wild Horses fame has helped the boys rediscover their musical roots, and add new dimensions to their music.
The songs may have changed, but the idea is still the same - a good time to be had by all!
