Union Jack and the Rippers
Formed in 2016, Union Jack and the Rippers is bringing the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) to Northern California. Guitarist Kiyoshi Morgan pulled together five talented musicians with years of experience to create one of the North Bay’s best Heavy Metal cover bands. Union Jack and the Rippers cover favorites from bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Saxon, Angel Witch, Def Leppard and Diamond Head.
The set list is made up of not just the hits from your favorite British Heavy Metal bands, but the deep tracks you listened to that really made you feel connected to the music, the songs that made you a true fan.
Because of the depth of experience of each band member, the first rehearsal was unbelievable. Each player contributes impressive skill, professionalism and commitment not just to the band but to every song they play. The group gelled from day one and the buzz began.
