Welcome to my little tribute to Jack Lukeman and the Black Romantics.
Or, Jack + band as they are affectionately known to us. The first 2 sets of pics were taken by yours truly
in Boston during the Fleadh weekend. The rest were taken in NYC in November at various venues.
I have decided to create a link list rather than compromise
the quality of the pics by shrinking them too much, so please enjoy! Links to the other wonderful Jack-sites
are at the bottom of the page, and I have quasi-lyrics for a few non-recorded faves
