Jack Spann Band’s return to the Barn.
Singer songwriter and master keyboardist/pianist Jack Spann has worked with some big names in the music business most notably David Bowie whom Spann spent time with working on what ultimately became Bowie’s Blackstar release. Aside from a sought-after musician in the studio and on stage, Spann has also logged time performing on Broadway including Hank Williams’ Lost Highway and War Horse, and preformed at SXSW and Milwaukee’s Summer Fest. Spann’s original songs are soaked in blues, country and rock that are simultaneously thought provoking yet wildly entertaining. His new release “Propaganda Man” is now on most major platforms and physical release is July 26th, 2019. His 2017 release “Beautiful Man from Mars” is a tribute to his time spent with Bowie and was met with critical acclaim earning him a headlining spot at Summer Fest, the world’s largest music festival.
Known for his impossibly fast hands on the keyboard, Spann is a storytelling songsmith with a warm vocal tone that perfectly balances out the ferocious piano playing reminiscent of Fats Waller, Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis.
