GET UP JACK was founded in 2013 by lifelong friends, John Haggerty and Mike DeAngelis, together with long-time musical collaborator, Scott Apicelli. Originally inspired by The Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem, and The Wolftones, they have had the distinct pleasure of sharing the festival and concert stage with all of them over the years, as well as with a true “who’s who” list of the greats in Irish folk and Irish rock music. GET UP JACK has played and toured throughout Ireland and the USA, including many of the top Irish Festivals and concert venues.
Described as Celtic/Americana, GET UP JACK takes the great Irish folk music of yesterday and merges it with the energy of American classic rock music, forming an incredible combination of outstanding vocals and musicianship. Ever evolving, GET UP JACK features Irish-Americans John Haggerty on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Scott Apicelli on drums and vocals, Crick Diefendorf on mandolin, banjo, steel drums, electric guitar and vocals, Doug Johnson on harmonica, ukulele and vocals, Tucker Callander on fiddle and vocals, and Mike McLean on bass and vocals.
