Jack O Roonie
Few musicians have devoted their passion and energy to the pursuit of excellence to the same extent as Jack O Roonie. Having made a name for himself back in the eighties as a member of sulphurous Belgian roots outfit The Wild Ones, Jack relocated to Los Angeles and soon became that most precious commodity in the business: a go-to backing musician prized for his versatility and rigorousness. It’s no accident that the likes of Wanda Jackson, Andre Willams, Bill Tapia, Slim Jim Phantom, Ronnie Dawson, Danny B Harvey among many others have called on his services time and time again.
You see, to call Jack O Roonie a rockabilly bass player would be a grave mistake. Weary of the limitations – and narrow-mindedness – of the so-called rockin’ scene, Jack set out to hone his craft by broadening his horizons. After an eye-opening – and gruelling – stint at the Music Schools, Jack began to embrace music genres as far removed from the fakeness of the modern rockabilly scene as is possible. Jazz, classical music, chanson, film music, Charles Mingus variations... the only common thread is a complete dedication to the Art of the double bass. Those – myself included – who knew him as “le petit Jacky” back in the day never would have imagined that the once infamous hellraiser would become this revered musical polymath. Jack plays Labella Strings.
