It was in 2007 when The BlackJackits charged into the Southern California music scene! Armed with a unique blend of punk, psychobilly, and dark melodies, the BlackJackits high energy live show immediately set them apart. Formed by Kenny Hill, multi-instrumental commando, The Blackjackits first line up was: Kenny Hill - Guitar/Vocals, Vic Yamasaki (Barnyard Ballers) Slap Bass, and  Mike Garcia on Drums.

   Kenny was also playing slap bass in legendary international headliners, The Quakes, from 06-10. During this time the BlackJackits performed as many shows as possible, in between world tours with the Quakes. Playing venues such as: Zombie Lounge, Key Club Hollywood, Brick by Brick, the Shakedown, Soda Bar, etc. In 2010, Kyle Olson, aka Kro, joined as slap bass assassin. Kro was also a journeymen of the international circuit, well known for his time in Rezurex, Altar Relics, and formerly endorsed by King Doublebass. In 2011, Manny Lutz, hard hitting drummer formerly of Altar Relics, was recruited to keep the beat on drums. Now with a solid line up, 6 years of writing, recording, and performing under their belt, the BlackJackits are poised to decimate audiences with their hard hitting, melodic, blitzkrieg of sound, one show at a time, on their climb to the top!
