Since its birth in late 2004, Shackle Jack has accomplished a great deal. With a high-energy 13 song set, Shackle Jack has impressed audiences at every single show. In its debut competition in the summer of 2005, Shackle Jack placed 7th out of over 100 bands in Michigans World Series of Rock. Immediately following this competition, the Jack headed north to the Upper Peninsula to claim the Manistique Music Festivals battle of the bands 1st place trophy. Not long after that, Shackle Jack rocked the semi finals at Grand Rapids premiere rock club, the Intersection, for WKLQs Heavyweight Championship battle of the bands. Within the first year Shackle Jacks success has far exceeded even the bands own expectations. This band is comprised of talented professionals which is evident in the response of venues and bands that Shackle Jack has worked with thus far.
Shackle Jack music entertains a wide variety of listeners due to its unique blend of hard rock and heavy metal. Buddhas melodic yet rugged vocals are brought to life through Dustins powerful guitar sound then reinforced by Jesse and Justins air-tight bass and drum coordination. The bands influences such as Clutch, Velvet Revolver, Black Sabbath and Pantera are evident but not mimicked in Shackle Jacks sound. This band is comprised of true musicians that value integrity and professionalism and nothing will stand in their way on the road to success.
