The JackLords - Buffalo's Legendary Rock n' Roll Band!

The JackLords were Buffalo's premier partying rock and roll band from 1988 to 1990. With influences ranging from surf instrumentals, garage, and British mod, to 60s frat rock and grittty blues and country, they packed local clubs such as Marshalls and Nietzche's with masses of dancing partyers!

The JackLords only put out one complete album: "Mother's Rock," on Skyclad records (NJ). This little piece of vinyl is now considered quite a collector's item.

The JackLords played some amazing and fun rock and roll shows, opening for such bands as: Teenage Head, the Cynics, The Washington Squares, Roy Orbison, The Original Sins, and Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet.

In a "Buffalo Nighlife" poll, they were voted as Buffalo's best new rock and roll band for 1989.

After they broke up in 1990, their members went on to play in such bands as the Steam Donkeys (Buck), Death Valley (Blue), Sons of Hercules (Casino), and the Dark Marbles (Yod), most of which are still performing.
