This German Eurodance group appeared in 1995. It was founded in Darmstadt. The most well-known single of the group is entitled “Captain Jack”. It was included in the list of Top 10 hits in a number of charts across Europe.
Originally, the group involved Sharky Durban and Liza da Costa. They released the singles “Dam, Dam, Dam” and “Captain Jack”. The debut EP of the band “The Mission” was released only after Sharky left and was replaced by Franky Gee (real name is Francisco Gutierrez). Gutierrez contributed greatly to the style of the band’s music and suggested a costume that looked very much like the uniform of a US Army officer. The style of the hat the members of the band were to wear was based on the style of the hats worn by the US Marines.
Together with Liza da Costa, they presented to the public the singles “Drill Instruction” and “Holiday” as well as the albums “The Mission” and “Operating Dance”. In 1998, Liza left the band to pursue a career as a solo-musician.
Maria Lucia Lozanes (known under the stage name Maloy) that replaced Liza da Costa wasn’t a part of the band for long. She took part in the production of the singles “Dream a Dream”, “Get Up” and “Only You” as well as the 3rd album entitled “The Captain's Revenge”. She left the band in 2000.
Five next albums were released together with Illi Love. In 2005, the project was put on pause by its producers due to the sudden death of Franky Gee.
The band reunited in 2008 with Bruce Lacy and Jamie Lee as its members. The style of the first single “Turkish Bazar” released on the 18th of September was a mixture of dance-pop and hip-hop that was significantly different from the original style of the band’s music. The new album “Captain Jack is Back” was released not long after it, on the 17th of October.
In 2010, Jamie Lee was replaced by the winner of the first season “The Voice of Germany” Laura Martin. In 2011, the album “Back to the Dancefloor” was released. It consisted of the remixes of the most popular Captain Jack’s songs and new singles.
Currently, the band consists of Bruce Lacy and Michelle Stanley. In 2016, they gave 80 concerts all over Europe. In the beginning of 2017, the band started working on its new album. The teaser for the future single was released on the 4th if February. In the beginning of May 2017, it was announced that the band is going to shoot a videoclip in Germany. Pulse Music TV nominated the band for Best of YouTube 2017.
