Here to Stay
On a sunny day in September 1963, young Jack Moriarty, an American kid living in Ireland was riding to school on a double decker bus when a fellow classmate named Seamus, turned to him and said in a high pitched pre-pubescent, Dublin Irish accent, "The Beatles are the telly this week. Aire ya gonta watch em? " Within days of that first awareness of this thing called The Beatles, Jack began the journey from "Chubby Checkers', 'Twist' and Shelly Fabares 'Johnny Angel' to the music, the questioning lyrics and the musical drive train that has been with him ever since. Some years later, Mike Fevola was born with a drumstick in one hand and a Yamaha Bass in the other. He is the driving musical force behind the Jackmo sound, carrying Jack's songs and lyrics to new heights and providing rich interpretations. Mike has been a recording session player since the age of 14. He has performed around the country with a variety of bands and is currently finishing up his first solo project, entitled 'Purple Distortion', which he expect to release in late 2007. Says Jack Moriarty, "Fev breathes music like the rest of us breathe air. He is an incredible, intuitive talent."
