Described as a "...fusion of orchestral cello and upbeat piano with catchy pop rock that creates a sound that's well beyond traditional categorization."

A reviewer for their upcoming self-titled album writes, "The first thing likely to strike you are the dramatic & darkly tinged lead vocals, set among the backdrop of classic Pop hooks that bring the various likes of early Blondie, Talking Heads or Austrailia's The Triffids to mind. All of which doesn't do justice to the quirky & melodic delights herein. Propelled by muscular bass lines, laced with of all things, cello, one can hear elements of "chamber pop" along with handfuls of VU grit."

Fresh from the success of Real Live Girl (which included airplay on college radio across the US and Canada, TV appearances, and being sponsored by Chrysler Financial on the 100,000 copy pressing of Jeep Trax 2005), JACK BRAG started in 2007 when primary songwriter/bassist TONY DONATO teamed up with vocalist/keyboardist JIM ROBERTAZZI (with his extensive musical theater background) and cellist JAY VARGA. With a direction established and much determination, the live band is rounded out with guitarist RICH FERREIRA and drummer BILL QUINN.
