Freaky, funny, funky mind-bending music direct from Chicago. Among other things Jack is the World's Greatest Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band Tribute Band.

“I'm walking down 18th Street in the Bottom on a Saturday and I see this big guy in a tux with a lime green tie and green suede shoes standing on top of a Jeep, wailing on a guitar. After some staring and eye contact, he points to the door of the Cobblestone Brewery and tells me to go in, so I do. The rest of the night was an experience I won't forget. The big guy, Lem Roby, is one hell of a guitar player and showman. He walked around the bar talking to people while he played, strolled into the pool room, grabbed a cue stick, and played some of the best slide I've heard in a while. His band, Jack Salamander, covered everything from John Lee Hooker to Zappa.” –Richmond Music Journal

The live shows have been called: “Tasteful and tight, filled with the magical experience of the unexpected.” “Our kids had as much fun as we did!”
