In 2010, Jack invented the band Rubix Wheel with the idea of having pro players behind epic songs. The name is based on the light show which compliments the colorful sound of the music. Since 2015, Rubix has had the same three members. Although the drummers have changed, 2015 was the year Rubix was Officially Established as a Mainstay on the Regional Jam Circuit. Rubix made multiple appearances in cities around the Midwest. They honed their craft and strengthened their presence in the Ohio Valley. By 2017 they were headlining festivals such as NORML Harvest Fest(OH) and Super Sessions(WV). They even took a trip to Chicago to play the Elbo Room, a famed venue where Umphrey's McGee played their first Chicago show many years before.
All four band members have day jobs that help them contribute equally to the production side of music. Jack took a part time gig in 2015 writing live show reviews for touring Rock and Jam bands. After reviewing The Stones, McCartney, and many well known Jam and Rock Acts, Jack turned the focus back to music. He went ahead and booked the band a Fall Tour through OH in 2016, and they had so much fun they kept playing shows, with the band's first Homegrown Festival in 2017(Super Sessions). Jack got hired at GetGo later that year, and has been there nearly 3 years . He's happy living the single life. Mark works Construction, and has been with the same Woman for nearly seven years. Andre has a nice Desk Job, and is happily Married. Steve works for a Pawn Shop, and is also happily Maried.
After parting ways with NOS records in 2013, Jack used what he had learned to continue the growth and touring abilities of Rubix Wheel. Although the lineups were changing, in 2015 that all changed and is STILL the same today. Mark, Steve, and Jack continue to front Rubix Wheel as a band of brothers who are bonded by love, faith, and musical skill. Andre is the newest member on drums, and he is fitting in quite well. Jack and the boys play shows year round while working day jobs, making pro-shot music videos, playing festivals, and recording in the Studios. 2020 begins the next chapter in Rubix Wheel's life, and we can't wait to see how it unfolds.

"The song “Feels” opens the record with that tasty old school and true jam band flavor. The guitar is plucky and soaring while the bass holds a steady and deliciously thick groove. I like the way the drums and keys get laced through each song on this album." The Jamwich
''Feels' is the kind of friendly rocker that requires serious instrumental expertise to attempt - and its still rare to encounter an act that can turn such transcendent skills into a radio-ready hit like this." The Akademia - Los Angeles, CA
"The band crackles with intensity and a tight groove formed from a few years on the road." Independent Music Reviews
