Jack Romanov

with Spo, Ian Cat, Mint Green
When all four members of Jack Romanov started studying at Suffolk University in the fall of 2012, none of them could have predicted meeting each other and practicing in the cramped up basements of downtown Boston.After running into each other while trying to use a practice room at Suffolk, Luke Bergamini and Nico Renzulli quickly became friends and started playing together. While both students were multi-instrumentalists, Renzulli took care of the drums while Luke jammed out on the guitar. Bringing metal, classic rock, and blues influences along with them, they started searching for a bassist and a charismatic singer to add on to their jam sessions.Along their Suffolk class they found the theater and A Cappella backed singer, Nick Aikens and bassist Sean Egan. The four quickly settled on a direction and started playing and writing together.After a few months however, Egan decided to leave for personal reasons while still remaining friends with the band. With a growing list of upcoming shows, Bergamini found and recruited Esteban Cajigas to the band. With each member coming and growing up in a different part of the country, (Aikens from New Hampshire, Bergamini from New Jersey, Renzulli from LA, and Cajigas from Florida) all four members brought a different tone to the band, particularly Aikens with a pop-driven edge.With their self release of their "Get Some Sleep" EP and shows in Boston, New York City, Somerville, Jack Romanov is trying to get their name and sound out for anybody who is looking for a new band.
