JACK & JACK



18-year-olds Jack Gilinsky and Jack Johnson, known to their combined 14 million social media followers as “Jack & Jack”, have been best friends since kindergarten. Their classroom antics were known throughout school and they always talked about pursuing a career where they could tap their crazy humor and passion for music and entertaining. The summer before their senior year, they began making Vines, and within 18 months they propelled themselves into the hearts of over 5 million loyal fans. Their Nerd Vandals Vine went viral and was hailed by the Huffington Post as “the perfect Vine.”. They have since created vines to increase public awareness for skin cancer awareness, anti-bullying and safe driving. In addition, they have worked with a number of national brands in various capacities, including Verizon, Pizza Hut, Michelin, MUDD, and Material Girl, to name a few. They also partnered to create two hot games on the app store, the Jack & Jack Vines Game and Let It Goat.

Jack & Jack have over 5.5 million followers on Vine alone and are developing their skills in delivering longer format sketches and music videos on their growing YouTube channel. With over 6 million views, their most popular YouTube video is a music video of their hit song, “Wild Life.”

Jack & Jack have independently released 15 original songs on iTunes, all of which have charted on iTunes. To date, they have sold over 1.5 million songs with 9 of their 15 songs finding their way on numerous Billboard Charts, most notably Hot R&B/Hip-Hop, Hot Rap, Bubbling Under Hot 100, Pop Digital, Top Twitter Tracks and the Billboard Hot 100.

In the summer of 2014 Jack & Jack successfully headlined Digitour’s 18 city tour. They were also the headline performers at the Teen Choice Awards Pre-Party, and attended the TCA’s for their nomination in the Viner of the Year category. In September 2014, they were the Musical Headliner for INTOUR, a YouTube celebrity concert at the Pasadena Convention Center. In November 2014 they closed down Michigan Avenue with their performance at the Verizon Michigan Avenue Destination Store Grand Opening, and in January 2015, Verizon asked Jack & Jack back to perform for 1500 lucky winners at the Bayou Music Center, as part of the Verizon Houston Destination Store Grand Opening. In December 2014 Jack & Jack headlined and produced their own show to a sold out crowd, at the 3,000 seat Ralston Arena in Omaha NE.

They have appeared with DJ JoJo Wright on KIIS-FM twice and featured as KIIS-FM’s NextUP’s Artist of the Week. They were interviewed by Ryan Seacrest in the summer of 2014 and at his request, participated in his 2015 Super Bowl #MakeItHappy campaign, which encourages kindness on the internet and in social media. Their hit “Wild Life” has had major play on a number of stations across the country. Currently their latest hit, “Like That”, is getting spins on KIIS-FM Chicago and POWER 106.5 Omaha. In February 2015, Jack & Jack appeared on ABC’s The View, performing their hit song, Tides. Later that same day, Jack & Jack entertained an in-studio audience at Z100, New York’s #1 Hit Music Station on DJ Maxwell’s show.

Most recently, Jack and Jack performed in front of 8,000 fans at Wembley Arena in London, and in front of 15,000 fans at SOTS in Hershey, Pennsylvania opening for Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes. Jack and & Jack have a UK tour planned for October/November 2015.

On July 24th, 2015, Jack & Jack self-released their long anticipated four-song EP titled Calibraska. Calibraska claims a musical first of a self released album sitting at the #1 album in the world spot on iTunes within hours of the EP’s release.

Jack & Jack were honored to be nominated for a 2015 Teen Choice award in the Digital Music Category along with other well known recording artists.

“We have the most loyal fans in the world and we couldn’t do any of this without them,” state Jack & Jack of their 18 million combined social media followers.
