Group Bio

Founded in 1991, The House Jacks instantly redefined the vocal music genre. Combining their virtuosic harmonies with spectacular stagecraft, these five world-class performers continue to push the boundaries of the human voice, thrilling audiences around the world.

 

Founder Deke Sharon sought to create the first “rock band without instruments,” employing a deep bass and a beatboxer as a vocal rhythm section and developing various extended vocal techniques, coupled with innovative arranging to recreate the idiomatic and sonic impact of pop music – all with the human voice! The House Jacks took the vocal music world by storm and have been at the forefront of the contemporary a cappella scene ever since.

 

In addition to their jaw-dropping performances and multi-award-winning albums of original music, The House Jacks are among the world’s leading a cappella educators, providing extensive coaching to scholastic and professional groups worldwide. With pioneering teaching methods in all aspects of a cappella music, performance and recording technology, The House Jacks are uniquely equipped to provide the specialized coaching required to create truly world-class vocal performances. As such, the members have worked behind the scenes of mainstream hits like Pitch Perfect, NBC’s The Sing-Off, BBC’s The Naked Choir and Pitch Battle, working directly with the cast to hone their performances for the camera. The group has also been the featured artist-in-residence at countless International music, choral and jazz festivals around the world as master clinicians, adjudicators and performers.

 

The House Jacks have been seen or heard on NFL Monday Night Football, NBC’s The Sing-Off, Chili’s and Schlotzsky’s advertising campaigns, Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution video game franchises and have performed at the many of the most prestigious venues in the US with an extensive domestic touring history, as well as over 30 European tours and various other international appearances in France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Brazil, Sri Lanka, the UK and more!
