Jackyl officially formed in 1987, but wouldn't put out their first album for five years. After half
a decade of building hype and honing their song list, Geffen Records would hear Jackyl's inventive sound and sign them for
a record deal. Their debut in 1992 would be a platinum hit, pushing Jackyl into the spotlight and paving their way into the
mainstream. Two years later the band would play the iconic Woodstock festival in 1994, promoting their second album and drawing
huge crowds all around.
The band would fade into obscurity in the mid 90s, going through lineup shakeups and record
changes as they tried to find the rhythm that they had lost since their platinum debut nearly a decade earlier. Not to be
disheartened by flagging sales, the band channeled their energy and frustrations into their music, eventually releasing another
album with new label Shimmer Tone. The album would again fly under the radar, but Jackyl would receive their big break with
the song "Open Invitation", written after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Riding on the coat tails of patriotic fervor, Jackyl
reestablished themselves and released another full length album in 2002 that would reinvigorate their careers and allow them
to tour extensively for the greater part of a decade.
The band would continue to become a part of heavy rock Americana,
as lead singer Jesse James Dupree would make the rounds on broadcast television promoting the band. Jackyl would even form
a partnership of sorts with the Nigel Dupree band, with the Nigel Dupree band being fronted by Jesse James Dupree's son. The
two groups released their 2012 albums concurrently, and both bands experienced commercial and radio success from the stunt.
the lineup of Jackyl has shifted over the years, today they are made up of original guitarist and vocalist Jesse James Dupree,
along with Jeff Worley also on guitar, Roman Glick slapping the bass, and Chris Worley on percussion.
The band's debut self titled album would feature four hits and eventually go platinum. Every hit would hit the
mainstream rock chart, with "Down on Me" hitting the #10 position and fan favorite "The Lumberjack" hitting #24. They also
would late release the single "When Will It Rain" which would climb to #11.
The band's follow up album Push Comes to
Shove would feature just two single releases, "Headed for Destruction" and "Push Comes to Shove". The latter would be the
band's best performing single yet, charting at the #7 spot. The band's momentum would continue to grow with their 1997 release
Cut the Crap, with the single "Locked and Loaded" almost becoming a top ten hit, but would stop just shy at #11.
a long hiatus from the mainstream, the band released When Moonshine and Dynamite Collides, which would feature such hits as
"My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine's Ass" and "Deeper in Darkness". The band's most recent release, Best in Show, featured "Favorite
Sin" which would be the band's first return to the charts in over a decade, eventually hitting the #42 spot on the Mainstream
Lead singer Jesse James Dupree is the head of a musical dynasty. His son Nigel Dupree
has experienced mainstream success as well. Much of Nigel's musical influences stem from his father.
The band collaborated
with famous hip hop artist Run-D.M.C. to produce the single "Just Like A Negro", which would become a hit single.
