Jittery Jack & Amy Griffin hail from Boston MA, USA, and play a wild brand of Americana music with an East-Coast Bang. They’re fast becoming a household name on the roots/rockabilly circuit worldwide, headlining festivals such as Viva Las Vegas & the UK's Rockabilly Rave. They have shared the stage with Imelda May, JD McPherson, Big Sandy, The Bellfuries, and Deke Dickerson, and toured all over the world from the dive bars of Providence and Tacoma to festival stages in Finland and Australia.
Jittery Jack & Amy Griffin honed their chops performing together over the last 25 years, first in The Raging Teens during the late 90’s/early aughts, and then in Jittery Jack since 2012. Their latest release strolls in like a tall glass of lager, with 8 originals and 5 covers for your listening and dancing pleasure. Highlights including “Gonna Have A Time”, “Dance Adrianne Dance”, “Boston Baby”, and the stellar “Something Wicked This Way Comes”. There’s even a ballad for the morning after!
