“Exotic, passionate, and seductive. No, it's not an ad for a new sports car or a Brazilian model. It's the self-described Indie/Latin band, Jác that is taking hold over Mercer County's music scene.

They are real musicians who play any instrument they can get their hands on, which allows their shows to incorporate elegant transitions in which a singer becomes a trumpeter, the upright bassist and drummer create moaning backup harmonies, and the violinist swaps for an accordion. The diversity of instruments helps to create the sexy, surreal sounds that differentiate Jác from other bands. So, without making a mockery of the the Latin music that inspires them, Jác is able to produce melancholy, exotic music with the precision that is beyond the rocker wannabes. ”
