He has also performed on the same national tours as Pat, but just missed him by a few months when he moved from Denver to Phoenix in 1981.  If these two had known each other back then....God help us....It's hard to imagine any stage containing them back then!

JACK HOOLE  Drums, Vocals, Percussion

  Jack has lived in many places and played with many bands throughout the years covering quite a few styles. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Jack started playing the drums at age 10 when prompted by a friend to join the elementary school band. It also didn’t hurt that his mother played the guitar, dad played the Banjo, sister played the piano, and grandparents played the mandolin, fiddle, organ, and piano. As a youngster Jack also got to experience the free spiritedness of folk festivals and John Hartford concerts...as well as exposure to an 8-Track tape of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club band over and over again.

A couple of years after joining the school band he acquired his first drumset and began listening to the many influences that would shape his drumming style.  From John Bonham to Neil Peart to Steve Gadd to Buddy Rich to Simon Phillips to Stewart Copeland to Bill Bruford to Dave Weckl (and many others.) 

 Jack’s rock band experience began in his early teens when bands like Night Ranger, Poison, and Motley Crue ruled the day.  Later, in college, influences such as REM, The Minutemen, and Husker Du, with a more raw sound and different kind of edge, took over. 

Besides playing covers, Jack has also played with numerous groups who wrote and performed original music including, but certainly not limited to, the Phoenix based Celtic Folk Punk group Cockswain!

 Making the move to a large metropolitan area like Phoenix has had many benefits and has afforded Jack the opportunity to play music with some absolutely amazing musicians and groups like The Backstage Crew!!!
