Named after the pop culture phenomenon of the Magic Conch from Spongebob Squarepants, their songs are catchy and worth listening to, similar to their namesake. Their songs, "Break" and "Unsettled," demonstrate the band's versatility, and are sure to have you shouting "All hail the magic conch," by the end of the night.
Hi/Jack is: Ron (drums) and Max (vocals and guitar). The story of Hi/Jack begins with a fateful meeting at a Milwaukee area music venue in early 2014, during a period of time when Max had a stockpile of material he had written since the disbandment of his previous group. The two came together to play a show and rapidly found they had musical chemistry and common influences. These influences include Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and similar classic hard rock legends. By Spring of 2014 the two were already practicing regularly and writing songs as Hi/Jack and quickly began to make a name for themselves due to their high energy show, their skilled musicianship and their unique instrumentation, being a 2-piece hard rock group without a bass player.
