Introducing Ace Acker
Ace Acker: the one man party
Steven "Ace"Acker has been making music and hits since his teens in Warren, Ohio. He founded the band LAW in 1971, which was discovered and signed to MCA Records in 1975 by The Who. LAW toured throughout the decade with The Who, Bob Seger, Boston, Bad Company, and nearly every other major rock act of the era. He was (and is) widely regarded as one of the finest and most exciting rock and blues guitarists to ever emerge from the Northeast United States.
In 1978, Steve left the band and joined his family in Jackson, Mississippi, where his father was running two General Motors plants. Two years later he scored a regional hit 45 rpm record with a rock college fight song titled "Bulldog Blitz" for Mississippi State University. He joined the state's largest advertising agency in 1982, where he composed many popular jingles and created numerous award-winning ad campaigns. He left Jackson in 1985 after graduating from Mississippi College, to work as a creative director for a Nashville advertising agency, where he remained for 14 years. During this period his work earned numerous national creative awards. He created an adult education program for Dollar General Stores in 1987 that earned a Special Presidential Award from President Ronald Reagan and has, to date, resulted in 1.5 million Dollar General customers earning their GED Certificates or learning how to read.
In 1999 Steve returned to Jackson and promptly produced hit CD's of original, contemporary college fight songs for several major universities. After scoring a songwriting/production deal in New York City in 2007, Steve left Mississippi again to spend two years in his native Ohio and then back again to Nashville.
Now Ace is taking his exciting brand of boogie and blues, rock and soul, beautiful ballads and blasts from the past, to Key West, Florida. He is available to perform his vast repertoire of originals, blues, and classic hits--live guitar and lead vocals performed over his own professionally produced backing tracks--for clubs, parties, and special events. An evening with Ace Acker is an evening of rollicking entertainment and dazzling musical skills that will satisfy any listener in the audience...drunk or sober!
Enjoy his videos. Listen to his music. This is ACE ACKER. THE ONE MAN PARTY.
