Jack Romano is the Last of the Singing Cowboys. Playing classic Country-Western, Rockabilly, and Folk in their traditional forms, he will take you from the Blue Yodels of Jimmie Rodgers, through the trail songs of Gene Autry, the heart-filled twang of Hank Williams, the lonesome train calls of Johnny Cash, to the outlaw anthems of Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson. He plays a wicked Boogie-Woogie piano, too.
Jack holds a B.F.A. in Acting from the Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Purchase College, and putting all his skills together, he performs as a storyteller--switching between both instruments--to bring you a dynamic live performance that the guests at your bar, restaurant, party, private event, wedding, festival, or farmers' market will not forget. Keeping the Country-Western lore alive, the old songs that you thought had been forgotten with the age of Vinyl, is what Jack is all about. If it's about an old train, riding the trail, driving a truck, dusty roads, triflin' women, trusty steeds, or a burning campfire--he knows it.
He is friendly, relaxed, punctual, and professional. His act is family-friendly. Below are some testimonials from past venues and guests, as well as a list of artists Jack covers.
