Jack Flash is a folk/punk 6 piece based in Toowoomba. Originating in the spring of 2006 they developed a style which brings traditional Australian folk sounds and themes to a punk audience. Jack Flash is influenced by such acts as Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphy’s, Red Gum, The Pogues and The Bushwhackers Band. Drawing on a rich background of Australian, Celtic and American tunes, the Jack Flash boys have forged their own sound and deliver a fresh contribution to the Folk/Punk genre. In the past four years the band has performed extensively around South East Queensland, with regular forays into New South Wales and Victoria, supporting the likes of Wolfmother, Leftover Crack (USA), Defiance, Ohio (USQ) The Snowdroppers, 6 Ft Hick, Giants of Science, Zombie Ghost Train, The Go Set, Sydney City Trash, Steve Towson, Blowhard and The Quickening.
