Jack Russell's Great White play a couple of New York area shows this week. The band plays Venu in Buffalo Thursday, May 12 (tonight) and The Chance in Poughkeepsie on Friday, May 13.

Since 2012, Jack Russell has continued to tour under the name Jack Russell’s Great White. Great White formed out of Los Angeles in 1977 and gained success in the 1980’s with exposure on MTV and the 1989 album …Twice Shy with songs like “Once Bitten, Twice Shy”. The cover of the Ian Hunter single earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance. The album went platinum in the summer of 1989 and double platinum by the fall of that same year. I recently had a chance to speak to Jack Russell on The Metal Box and we talked about the New York area shows and lots of other topics. You can check out the full interview below. Tickets for tonight's show in Buffalo at Venu can be purchased here. Tickets for the Friday show at The Chance in Poughkeepsie can be purchased here. The Chance show starts at 7pm and will also feature the Gregg Woods Band, Albany's own Moriah Formica, and Let go Daylight.
