JAK'S ACTS
With over 15 years of experience on more than 200 stages nationwide, Jak Locke is a multi-instrumentalist and eclectic songwriter and entertainer native to and based in New Orleans.
Locke has performed shows with numerous acts spanning genres from folk and trad jazz to death metal and noise. Currently his original songs can be heard with his high-octane outfit The Jak Locke Rock Show, the experimental Jak Is A Four Letter Word, and solo performances under his own name. He also co-fronts the 1950s rock'n'roll/R&B cover trio The NOLA Treblemakers.

THE JAK LOCKE ROCK SHOW
Jak Locke is on a mission to see how many subgenres can be shoved under the "indie rock" umbrella. Taking a cue from eclectic artists like Beck and David Bowie, Jak experiments with injecting vastly different styles together and forcing them to coexist on the same setlist (sometimes the same song.)

The Jak Locke Rock Show is the frantic theatrical live vehicle for Jak's more uptempo musical work. Bringing an over-the-top stage presence to the mix, this group's foremost goal is to bring back the "show" part of "live show" and put on a gonzo performance that people will remember!

-- "Jak Locke's Rock Show has shown me the most entertaining and energetic set from a live band I've ever seen." (Euphony Zine)

-- "...an unapologetically original performance." (GulfCoastBands.com)

-- "More eclectic than switching radio stations constantly." (Wizerk.com)

-- "Jak Locke commands the interest of everyone in the audience." (Gumbo Entertainment Guide)

-- "Jak Locke has all the intense raw performance energy of Flat Duo Jets and Foxy Shazam with a soaring voice that must be heard to be believed. Just insane." (Blank Zine)

-- "...I believe he may actually be possessed." (SouthernBabylon.com)

THE NOLA TREBLEMAKERS
The NOLA Treblemakers are a high energy trio celebrating 1950's and early 1960's rock and roll by performing the greatest hits of iconic artists such as Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, Bill Haley, Buddy Holly, Little Richard and many more.

Guitarist / singer Jackie Callico (Jak Locke), pianist / singer Teddy Bear Elvis (Ted Dunaway) and drummer Ozzie Valentino (Osvaldo Briceno) bring a mix of the hip-swinging rock'n'roll tunes and the moody, slow-stepping, "hold the one you love" melodies that both defined the era.

JAK IS A FOUR LETTER WORD
Jak Locke's experimental one-man show is hard to pin down, as it evolves from performance to performance. With a focus on the unconventional, ranging from anti-folk to pure noise, every exhibition is different -- a vast array of instruments, extreme distorted noise, abrasive feedback, and histrionic self-abuse are the only mainstays.
