Spring Heeled Jack Bio:

Spring Heeled Jack U.S.A. (more often known simply as Spring Heeled Jack) was a third wave ska band based out of New Haven, Connecticut. The band was formed by guitarist/vocalist Ron Ragona and drummer Dave Karcich in 1991. After a short breakup, Ragona and Karcich reformed the band with a new lineup. This lineup went on to record two albums before announcing a hiatus in 2000. While the band members moved on to perform in several new new bands, their intention was to play the occasional reunion show. This plan was would never come to fruition as a cerebral aneurysm would be cause for Karcich's sudden death in 2002.
