From the first time they played together these guys decided to walk the roots of Rock. This means a lot of Pink Floyd, Queen, Deep Purple, Van Halen and Led Zeppelin waft in the air and so Black Jack’s Star began to shine…

After 2 years spent seeking for a real rock frontman they found him in Paolo Ceritano and then Black Jack began composing their first EP, including four typical hard rock songs with powerful riffs and a new great rock sound. The guys began to play live to Italy to show them what they have and the following for this wicked band begun!

BIOGRAFIA ITALIANO
I Black Jack nascono nel mezzo dell’estate del 2005 in una piccola città chiamata Teramo, grazie ai suoi membri fondatori: Mario Alessiani alla chitarra, Lidio Pietrofaccia al basso e Lidio Mancini alla batteria. Dalla prima volta che i 3 suonano insieme decidono di percorrere le strade del rock. Questo significa molti Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Queen, Van Halen e Led Zeppelin nel loro repertorio e la stella dei Black Jack comincia a splendere… Dopo 2 anni spesi nel cercare un vero rock frontman il gruppo trova Paolo Ceritano e i 4 cominciano a comporre il loro primo EP, composto da 4 tipiche canzoni hard rock con riff potenti e un nuovo sound rock. Così i ragazzi continuano a suonare live per mostrare al mondo intero quanto suonano forte! A conclusione del primo anno della nuova formazione la band si lega a una delle migliori agenzie di rock italiane: Bologna Rock City, grazie alla quale acquista grande visibilità e stringe rapporti con le migliori rock band della penisola.
