JaFco is a catchy alternative pop/rock band formerly known as Echo Park based in Portland, Oregon. The band is mainly  focused on writing and performing their original brand of eclectic pop/rock music. However, they have been known to play select shows assaulting it's audience with a very large repetoire of cover tunes from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and beyond.

If I Can't Have Her  

Dear JaFco Nation, 

When we were recording Echo Park the Originals in 2010-11, we tracked several of our very first tunes together. This particular tune written by Jim Doyle before he joined Echo Park in 1988 became a favorite of ours. In fact we recorded a version of it on our first demo in 1988. This version of "If I Can't Have Her" was recorded in 2011 and was finalized in January of 2012. It did not make the record, but it is still one of favorites to play. Enjoy.

New JaFco Music Update! 

JaFco Nation, 

We are hard at work on the new record and have a solid side 1 now. Those of you that remember LPs know what we are talking about! We have several dark horses in the running to round out the next album and are fine tuning those bad boys now. 

New JaFco Music Update 

Nation, it has been awhile since we last blogged. Hmmm, we suck. 

We are working on the next record. It is really coming along nicely. We have several tunes in the works and this new offering will be full of magical moments and we are eager to share it with you all. No word yet on the release date, but be on the lookout for updates and news as we work on it! 

For now, here is a little treat of Mac laying trax to a new tune!

Unsure- Last But Not Least! 

Dear JaFco Nation!

So often the last song on an album goes undiscovered. Well here is your opportunity to listen to the last song wrapping up the Entire Stripes Black album. Unsure sounds like a song off of Groove Gallery because it was originally written around the same time. We just brought it to life for the ESB record.

Check it out on our website or here on Sound Cloud!


Make Believe - CD Contest  

Hello JaFco Nation,

For this weeks blog post, we thought we would share a tune that didn't make it on the ESB record. But, we had played it live several times in 2015-2016. So here's the rub: Doyle wrote and sang the verse lyrics in French. If you can figure out what he is saying and post the lyrics in English in the comments section, we will send you a free signed Entire Stripes Black CD. Que la fête commence!

Contest ends April 15th, 2017!!!

All Things Sinatra!   

JaFco Nation,

It is no secret that we are all big fans of Frank Sinatra. In fact we always squeeze some Sinatra cover tunes in our sets. There is one song in particular that we really like. Wandering, originally released in 1966 on the album Cycles. We thought we would add some JaFco treatment with Jim Mckenzie on vocals and let you all hear it. Leave your comments below as we pay homage to the Chairman of the Board!
