It’s the rare rock band nowadays that rocks a baby grand as its primary weapon of choice, but Jack’s Mannequin is that band.

The band is the creation of frontman Andrew McMahon, starting in 2004 on a break from McMahon’s previous band, Something Corporate. In short order, McMahon released an album with Jack’s Mannequin and was diagnosed with leukemia. His successful battle with the disease is chronicled in a DVD and accompanying EP entitled “Dear Jack.”

The band’s follow-up album, The Glass Passenger, was released in September 2008 and became one of my favorites that year.

The current tour, entitled “Sing For Your Supper” will be in many US cities over the next few weeks. We saw the band in SLC tonight at In the Venue, and though my tolerance for that place is seriously running low, it was a energetic show that really showcased McMahon’s talent and that of his band. If you have a chance to see it, definitely check it out, it’s well worth your time and cash.
