Internet Gig #4 – The Final Lockdown – 19:00h 27th March 2021

Sunday, February 21st, 2021

It’s been six months since our last online gig and the clamour for more has been undeniable so we relent under pressure: Okay we will do another online show! This could easily be the best online party of the what we’re all hoping is the “final lockdown”!

Join us!

People said the last few shows were too short, so we bring you a 50% longer show!

A full 45 minute set from 7pm on the last day before British Summer time, Saturday the 27th of March 2021.

Expect four people in separate bedrooms all around London playing with each other live. There will be guitars, keyboards, singing, drums and bass to entertain you with songs and jokes and graphics effects.

Thrill at the danger of the precarious knowledge that it’s a wonder any of this technology works and it could all fail at any time.

Maybe even a new song!

Nobody else is doing a show like this.

We bring back the well received “clap-o-matic audience-o-tron” crowd feedback system. You can cheer and clap and boo without even opening your mouth just at the click of your mouse.

The sound in the audience room should be *amazing* compared to last time so no need to head youtube for good sound, if you have a laptop you can join the audience and show us your face! Please do!

The bar chat-room will be open for you to chat to each other before and after the gig. Some of the band might even join you after our debrief.

Android/iOS machines will still be better off at the youtube link.

Either way, join us at 19:00 GMT on Saturday 27th of March, wherever you are at https://watch.handsomejacks.co.uk/

Internet Gig #3

Saturday, July 18th, 2020

Up beat and bouncy live music for your Friday night, pour yourself a cold one and put on your dancing shoes.

Join us without leaving home at

For the first time, featuring our clap-o-tron.

That’s right everyone, for the very first time our online show will feature our experimental clap-o-matic audience-o-tron crowd feedback system.

Designed and implemented exclusively for Handsome Jack’s Showband Internet Gig’s this crowd feedback system allows those viewing the event live in the audience room to clap and cheer and give feedback to the band without un-muting your microphones at the mere click of a button.

With these experiments and constant improvements to the Handsome Jack’s Showband Internet Gig Experience you can be sure that nobody else has quite the same quality of experience as Handsome Jack’s fans.

Online Gig – 28th May 2020 – The Internet

Sunday, May 24th, 2020

Thought we’d try and do a internet gig thing.

What happens when four people in different houses all try and play a live gig thing for twenty minutes in front of a video-conference audience?

Help us find out, this Thursday 28th may at 9pm BST.

Join the audience, or watch the live-stream. Or if you’re too square to be there, watch the recording of the live-stream afterwards.

Coming to you live simultaneously from four different rooms across London, Handsome Jack’s Showband present a live online experience you’ll treasure.

Get bragging rights, get a story for your grandchildren about how you were there, in the beginning, at the very first Handsome Jack’s Internet Gig, before it became a global phenomenon.

The show will be live-streamed here on Facebook-live, or join us in the audience room to cheer and heckle and have your beautiful smiling faces featured.

Turn on and tune in at 9pm on Thursday 28th of May for about 20 minutes of whatever this turns out to be like.
