Manic Jacks was formed by Alan Margetson (ex Dusty Earth Band) and Titch (ex Constitution Hillbillies) after a chance meeting on Oxford Street Swansea during this conversation they decided to put together a Bluegrass band.............. What the hell went wrong!

Not long after they were joined by Ian ‘The Rev’ James on Bass (a local legend on the acoustic scene in Swansea) and classically trained Marc Elton on fiddle (also ex Constitution Hillbillies) and the music started to take a very different direction. They were then joined by compulsory percussionist Huw Rees (he’s in every band in the area!).

Manic Jack's music is fun, up tempo and is a mix of Bluegrass and Irish standards mixed with popular songs from the 60’s, 70’s 80’s and worth watching if only for the bizarre face pulling that is exhibited.

Watch Out this train ain’t stopping! Yee Haa!
