Lightning Jack is multi instrumentalist, Jack Ceriani – 25-year-old performer who incorporates foot percussion with his resonator guitars and various lap steels. His Blues Roots Grunge style of music is a percussive sound that is very much his own. His heavy slide driven grooves and mature vocals are steeped in roots but very fresh. His first EP The Road Begins sold three pressings independently from side of stage.
With many years performing music on the road, Jack is a veteran of the live circuit, festivals and soggy seedy venues since the ripe old age of 11. He’s supported acts such as The Angels, Ash Grunwald, Dave Hole and Blue Shaddy. Current music projects include playing lead guitar for Lance Friend in the Murky River band, toured with Pop Standem and Phil Emmanuel.
Recent studio work with songwriter Roshani Priddis has led to Jack becoming her full-time guitarist. Since appearing on 60 Minutes with her life story earlier this year, Roshani has been receiving great reviews. Recent performances at this year’s Byron Bay Blues festival were a hit with large audiences going off.
Jack is performing with Reasonable Doubt featuring Callum Kramer on drums, as well as an intimate solo show at this years festival. Now is your chance to see and hear the exceptional work of this young artist up close and personal – don’t miss it!
