This South African band, turning 34 this year, has always stayed true to its original brand of Rock and Roll. Fiercely independent, Jack Hammer has somehow survived the strange machinery that is the SA music industry and produced some sterling original albums over the years. Since their first performance way back in 1984 the one constant factor in the band has been the man affectionately known as “The Hammer”, Piet Botha.
The current Jack Hammer line-up has now been together for around seven years and consists of Paul van de Waal (“The Duke”) on drums, Tertius du Plessis (“Beano”, bass guitar and Jonathan Martin (“The Kid”) on guitar and vocals and occasional cello.
