Jack Erwin A Colorado native, Jack Erwin started playing bass at the age of ten. Since then, he expanded his broad music taste far beyond the classic rock and metal of his teen band, Entity. he started playing the local Denver blues jams and fell in love with the blues and soul. Jack played with Dan Treanor's Afrosippi Band with Erica Brown and Merrian Johnson. Jack jokes about how his small sausage fingers get in the way of his bass playing, but his friends and colleagues know otherwise. While comfortable being in the back line, his playing and personality bring him out front.
