Jack Hall (Wet Willie)

Granted,  the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd enjoyed more commercial success…. however Mobile Alabama’s Wet Willie were/are among the most soulful, hard-rocking, hard-working, and influential ensembles from the Southern rock genre which they helped establish in the 1970s. 


Founding bassist Jack Hall, still going strong on the bandstand with his charismatic front-man brother Jimmy in a revamped line-up of Willie, is the consummate pocket-player working a funky disposition akin to the Motown, Muscle Shoals, Memphis Stax greats. 


In addition to their rhythm & blues modus operandi, Wet Willie also distinguished themselves from the south of the Mason-Dixon Line motley with their female backing vocal duos, most notably Jim and Jack’s sister Donna Hall, along with Ella Brown Avery.
