It’s hard to know where to begin talking about Jack. After his incredible turn as Liberace in the Milwaukee Rep’s Stackner Theatre, I began to use the names “Jack Forbes Wilson” and “Jack Wilson” as exclamations, as in, “Jack Wilson, it’s a beautiful day today”, and “Jack FORBES Wilson, that was an incredible concert”. No doubt, the name should be a household word, and practically is in Wisconsin.
Jack is active as a music director, actor, pianist, church musician and teacher. In all of these capacities, he absolutely excels. He’s many people’s first call for a musician, and he is so sought after in Milwaukee and Madison, that it’s not always easy to get him to do your gig. But it’s still very much worth a try. You won’t find a finer, more energetic, kinder or more capable pianist in these parts. Jack Wilson, that’s the truth!
