Human Country Jukebox featuring Jack Gregori
A taste of Texas in the nation’s capital, a bit of Dixie in the District, Human Country Jukebox plays the best classic country and western songs by the likes of Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and more. If these songs don’t get your hands clapping and your feet stomping you should probably see a doctor. And don’t say, “I don’t like country music.” If you like great singing, expert playing, soulful, bluesy, “I’m so sad I could drink, so happy I could drink some more” music then you’ll enjoy Human Country Jukebox.
Front man Jack Gregori grew up singing and playing whatever musical instruments were around him. “I got hooked when I was a kid in the 80’s and watched The Blues Brothers movie. That opened it up for me and I haven’t stopped since.” Eventually, Jack started performing at open mic nights. By 2010, he had picked up some local musicians, beginning the evolution into the Human Country Jukebox band. Since then, the band has performed well over a hundred times, mainly in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.
The name Human Country Jukebox actually refers to Jack himself. He’s memorized more than 200 country-western hits. Shout out the name of any song at one of their shows, and you’ll discover that HCJ can wing anything.
Taking requests and interacting with the audience is a signature of every HCJ performance. Audiences can expect a different show every time, filled with creative improvisations and reinterpretations of classic country tunes. Just don’t yell out “Sweet Home Alabama.”
