The technically skilled quintet of Colin Ball (lead vocals, guitar) Billy Rommal (lead guitar) Bobby Scott (bass, vocals) Erik Hildebrant (drum) Ian Hildebrant (keys, vocals) came together after various jam sessions inspired by acts like Mute Math, Tool, and Minus the Bear. Tirelessly touring and working on their sound, The Dirty Jacks have evolved towards more dynamic song compositions including three part harmonies and complex rhythms.
Along with their internal build, the band has grown out on the road playing some of Maryland's largest venues including The Fillmore, Jammin' Java, The Reacher Theatre and Rams Head Live. Their success on tour includes winning the 2012 Washington Auto Show's Battle of the Bands and Jammin' Java's Mid-Atlantc Band Battle 6 leading to The Dirty Jacks being voted band of the month, April 2012, on the Deli Magazine. Their latest music video, 'Mr. Derailer' was just released, blending alternative and progressive rock showcasing their signature style.
