“[Songwriter Günter Voelker] sho nuf know[s] how to put words together, and the band knows how to play, when to lie low and be quiet and when to stand up on hind legs and bark in your face. Wonderful.”
- John Walker, John Walker and the New Hokum Boys

“[Good Sons and Daughters is] one of the best sounding records Lincoln has ever heard.”
- Tree with Roots, KZUM

"This is a Lincoln band?! These men are whizzes with their instruments."
- Annie Bohling, Seeds Entertainment

"Jack Hotel is a joy to watch for its pure precision... What could easily be an unorganized mess is a beautiful orchestration in Jack Hotel’s hands."
- Hear Nebraska

Jack Hotel contains multitudes. A listen to the band's 2014 Sower Records debut, Good Sons and Daughters, reveals a range that encompasses Ry Cooder and Leo Kottke, Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt, Mississippi John Hurt and Etta Baker--but this band is no mere product of its influences. Since their start in 2012, Jack Hotel has proven itself one of the best, and most original, folk/Americana acts in the midwest. A storyteller's sensibility prevails in their songs. Bandleader Günter Voelker writes with a novelist's powers of observation and a poet's ear for language. Instrumentation--typically a violin (Josh Rector), a mandolin (Casey Hollingsworth), an upright bass (Marty Steinhausen), and a dobro (Joe Salvati)--meets the same standard. Each addition serves the song, advances the story, or drives home the emotion. Jack Hotel has earned respect on both regional and national stages, performing alongside such acts as J.D. McPherson, Pert' Near Sandstone, Frontier Ruckus, and Charlie Parr. In 2014 they opened for Willie Nelson and Neil Young at Nebraska's Harvest the Hope concert. Following the success of their first record, which landed a #3 spot on Hear Nebraska's Favorite Albums of 2014, they are now at work on album number two, slated for release this year. [+]
