Butch Whacks and the Glass Packs - Bob Sarlatte  

What IS Butch Whacks and the Glass Packs?

Simply a one-of-a-kind thirteen member entertainment phenomenon that has combined the best of vintage rock 'n roll with hilarious comedy sketchwork for over thirty years!

Started as a college-age diversion, Butch Whacks and the Glass Packs evolved into both a solid nightclub attraction as well as a fitting complement to such certified concert "draws" as The Doobie Brothers, Pointer Sisters and Boz Scaggs.

After Butch Whacks' initial heyday in the '70s,the band, founded by now-attorney Jerry Murphy and his longtime successful writer-producer brother Gary, and anchored performance-wise by actor-comedian BOB SARLATTE, collectively put away the gags and guitars in 1976--not to surface again until 1983.

It was then that The Glass packs embarked on a series of annual "Farewell Performances" that have been instant sellouts for twenty years, originally at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, and now at the retro-hip Bimbo's on Columbus Avenue in historic North Beach.

Coupled with SARLATTE's upfront skills as not only a singer, but also as a hybrid comedian/emcee and sometimes auctioneer (!), in addition to the reunion shows, Butch Whacks has lent its collective talent to a myriad of special events, corporate and charity functions.

This combined package has been an unabashed hit at this year's "Hands Across the Valley" at Rutherford's Niebaum-Coppola Winery as well as for shows for San Mateo County's St. Vincent de Paul Society among many others.

Whether utilized as a top flight show band or simply as a purveyor of danceable pop from the '50's and '60s, Butch Whacks and the Glass Packs is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
