The Jack Sass Band was one of NYC favorite showbands. We performed in clubs throughout NYC, Rhode Island, New Jersey (including the legendary Stone Pony one night a young Bruce Springsteen & David Sancious were in attendance). We were back up bands for The Coasters and Chuck Berry playing Madison Square Garden’ We were later to become part of NYC’s “NO WAVE” movement featured as a the “Punk Funk” element and performed with James White & The Blacks at the Peppermint Lounge as well as other official and unofficial Bowery Clubs. We shared a 2 month stint of Weds and Thursday afternoons at the “Queens College Rathskellar” events with a girl named “Madonna”. Our band held court at famous New York clubs such as Leviticus (Pictured Here with Nile Rodgers and Tony Thompson of Chic) and was one of the house bands at “The Cellar” home of “Kinky Foxx” (Johnny Kemp, Timmy Allen) and Platinum Hook (Bobby Douglas).The funkified sounds of Jack Sass was largely based on 70’s Funk, British Punk and we shared many similiarities to Rick James & Prince and the Minneapolis sound (although at the time we had no knowledge of our common sensibilities). Some of the recordings here were an attempt to tone down the rockin’ dirty funk to a more polished smooth sound at the yearning of our engineers & producer. The band had several incarnations and line ups, the latter including members from the best bands “Jamaica Queens” had to offer. The name came from our motto “Jack Sass Kicks A**”.

OUT OF THE BASEMENTS
GARAGES AND SUCH
A BEAST WAS RELEASED
CAUSE THE FUNK WAS TOO MUCH

FOUR KIDS FROM THE HOOD
ROSE UP FROM THE GROUND
AND BROUGHT TO THE PEOPLE
A NEW KIND OF SOUND

RAW ENERGY SHOCKED
EVERY HEAD THAT COULD MOVE
THEY COULD'NT AVOID
THE PULSATING GROOVE

OF "LA LA" AND "LIZ",
"VICTOR" AND "MIC"
KNOWN TO THE HIP
AS THE "JACK SASS" CLICK

WITHOUT THE TECHNOLOGY
WE NOW HAVE TODAY
THESE FOUR SOULS OF MUSIC
EXPLORED EVERY WAY

TO RHYTMATIZE BEATS
AND ROCK A BIG SOUND
HEARD BY THE THOUSANDS
AS THEY TRAVELED AROUND

THEY HIT ALL THE CLUBS
AND DESTROYED EVERY BAR
MADE YOU RIP UP THE FLOOR
AS YOU DANCED TO GUITARS

IT WAS DRUMS AND A BASS
AND THE VOCALS THAT FLEW
IGNITING A FLAME IN YOUR SOUL
THROUGH AND THROUGH

AHEAD OF THEIR TIME
IN THEIR CONCEPT AND THOUGHT
THERE WAS NO WAY TO FAKE
THE SOUL THAT THEY BROUGHT

ALL OF IT REAL
SO HONEST AND PURE
WHEN THEY PACKED UP THEIR GEAR
YOU'D MOST LIKELY BE SURE

THAT YOU'VE EXPERIENCED SOUL
IN IT'S RAWEST OF RAW
WHAT'S THAT YOU JUST HEARD ????
WHAT'S THAT YOU JUST SAW ??????

JACK SASS FO'EVER ( BABY!!!!!)
