Artist Bio

Jack Mack and the Heart Attack walk a straight line between Stax Volt and Muscle Shoals with a stop for lunch in Macon Georgia.


“Jack Mack’s music is a kick in the guts, like John Hiatt channeling Bobby Blue Bland punched up by Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes with the Tower of Power horn section sittin' in”. Grant Britt – No Depression Magazine.

Jack Mack’s sweet and funky soul music has earned a critically acclaimed thirty year legacy of success in the music business that includes: seven records, blockbuster movie soundtracks, and hundreds of global television and stage performances.

They've circled the globe performing concerts, clubs, festivals and some of the world's most outrageous private affairs. Their individual style of smokin’ R&B /Soul music, is inspired by the legendary artists that made up  the sounds of Memphis Stax Volt, Muscle Shoals, Motown, Philly and James Brown.  They have garnered an ever expanding and loyal following cementing their legendary reputation.


You can find their infamous horn section, “The Heart Attack Horns” included on countless collections and numerous award winning recording artists albums worldwide. But what the band is most known for is their solid, energetic and stellar live performances.


The band’s latest album, “Back To The Shack” combines their strong American Soul roots with the classic sound and traditions of the Blues.
