Buffalo's Handsome Jack give lots of muscle to its 1970's big rock inspired boogie and soul. It's essentially a garage band that outgrew the garage as it moved into bigger sounds and grooves. The guitar is boss in this band, driving neck and neck with the rest or the group's thunderclap and groove. They've consistently blown my head off every time I've seen them. Now's your turn, pal.
Handsome Jack plays Friday, January 15, at Monty's Krown, 875 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. handsomejackmusic.com.
