Jack comes from a little seaside town just north of Boston and was raised on a steady diet of Beatles, Stones & Kinks. He picked up the guitar as a teenager and right away started pissing off the neighbors. He went on to play in various garage rock outfits throughout the 1980s. Music was always important but took a backseat as young Jack began to establish himself and his professional career in the 1990s. There were jams now & then but mostly his Fender Telecaster slept quietly under the bed. Then due to a global economic downturn late in the 1st decade of the 21st century, Jack had some time on his hands and decided that the time had come to wake his sleeping electric guitar and annoy the neighbors all over again. He reached out to some other like minded souls and The 7CS were born!
