New England audiences know what they’re in for at a Jack Babineau show: natural talent and unrestrained energy. He began playing out professionally at the age of seventeen as a solo acoustic performer and recorded his first CD of original music in 2010 - which included the participation of legendary blues harpist, James Montgomery. In his strong, soulful voice, you can pick up strains of DMB, The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers, and Johnny Cash.
Jack has performed at a variety of venues including Lupo's, Newport Blues Cafe, The Met, The C Note, The Bull Run, The Pelham, The Stadium Theatre and opened for some great acts such as Blues Traveler, Clint Black, Devon Allman's Honeytribe, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, and John Cafferty. He has also performed on several college radio stations. When Jack covers a well-known song, he always finds the right balance between honoring the original and making it his own. And, as that inventory grows and grows, Jack is also hard at work writing original music.
Jack's first album, Generation of Need, was recorded at Satellite Studios in East Greenwich, Rhode Island under the direction of Emerson Torrey. The album was released in January 2010 and a band was formed to play the music live. "Don't Blame Jack" made their debut at The Blackstone in Pawtucket, RI. They burned down the house and the buzz began. Six weeks later they were opening for Blues Traveler at Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, RI. The band participated in The Brothers and Sisters Blues Tour in 2011 and continued to play throughout New England until Jack took a break from music for military service. Jack is currently back in New England and performing as a solo acoustic performer, as a power trio, or with the full band - Louie Likes It Hot.
