Biography

Germany (1996 – 2005, 2008 – present)

There are two musical projects behind this moniker. One is an Electro-Funk/Electro-HipHop Artist having released two 12” in the mid 80’s, the other is the following Eurodance production team:

Captain Jack was a German Eurohouse/pop production team formed in Germany in 1996, fronted by core member, songwriter and vocalist Francisco Alejandro Gutierrez, who adopted the stage name Franky Gee. The original female vocalist on the group’s first two albums was Liza Da Costa, who attempted a solo career after leaving the Captain Jack team. She was replaced in 1999 by Maria Lucia ‘Maloy’ Lozanes, who in turn was replaced by Ilka-Anna-Antonia Traue (stage name: Illi Love) in 2001. Singer Sunny was the final female singer with Captain Jack.

The gimmick to Captain Jack’s music (and Franky Gee’s persona) was that of military training. Franky’s costume consisted of a stylized military general’s uniform, with a red hat based on that of the US Marines. Gutierrez chose this gimmick because of his service in the United States Army, a career he despised but was forced to follow when he was strapped for cash. After ending his time in the US Army, Gutierrez remained in Germany, where he was last stationed, and began a recording career under the name Westside.

    I think that Captain Jack had the best chart success here in Finland... Same with Scatman John, whose album went #1... This country was too deep into the gimmick eurodance, they even made a shitload of Finnish "Smurf" albums, which were covers of popular dance songs done with sped up voices. Believe me, it was terrible.
