Drill Instructor

Hey this is Captain Jack!

Do you really follow me into the light,
Drill instructor's on, drill instructor's on my side
Do you reall make commands of dynamite
Love and peace is our fight
All for one, come together friends - we have to take this chance
All for one, come together friends - we gotta take this chance tonight

Drill instructor tell me what to do
I'm your man, I will follow only you
See us making love all through the night
That's the reason my drill instructor loves to fight

Now sound off 1-2, bring it on up 3-4
Bring it on down 1-2, 3-4, 1-2, 3-4

Refrain: ......

C/130 rolling down the strip
Airborn lady's going to take a little trip
Jumping out planes in the midnight hour
As soon as we land this place is ours

Now sound off 1-2, bring it on up 3-4
Bring it on down 1-2, 3-4, 1-2, 3-4

Refrain: ......

Peace, love and happiness in our hands
Is up to us, come on in and take commands
Come together and see the light
All for one like a stick of dynamite

Now sound off 1-2, bring it on up 3-4
Bring it on down 1-2, 3-4, 1-2, 3-4

Captain Jack became one of the most controversial groups of last weeks. Franky Gee (born 02-19-62) and Liza Da Costa (born 03-26-68) are performing in army uniform. In spite of attire they sing about love and peace. This singing couple from Darmstadt (Germany) have recently released their first album The Mission.

http://www.eurodancehits.com/jack1.gifFranky Gee (his real name Francisco Gutierez) was born in Havana, Cuba . He and their parents immigrated to US and settled in Miami, Florida. He wanted to become a pilot and even had studied aeronautics in College in Miami. Because of the strike the college students were forced to serve three years and Franky did not like the idea and dropped the school. His parents were not rich and he had to find a job. The easiest way was to join the army, so he did. His memories from this time is not the nicest one. He was later sent to Germany and in 1988 he was released from the duty. He decided to stay in Germany. At the beginning he worked as an insurance agent than become a broker in Frankfurt (Germany). He did not like the job, even if he was well paid. He became a DJ and started producing a dance music with his friends. He released the single "Oh Well" under Westside. He was previously married and has three children.

Liza Da Costa was born in Portugal. His mother is Portugese while her father was born in India, however they have moved to Germany when she was a child. When she was 12, she started to sing. She had in her repertoire songs by Whitney Houston. His friend has a recording studio where the music for TV movies is being produced. She was a part of female jazz group.

Everything started quite recently. Liza, Franky Udo and Richard (these two guys are their producers) known each other from Frankfurt (Germany). Franky remembered from his earlier days during his time in the army that drill commands had something quite specific about it. He talked about it with Udo, and he produced a track with sharp dance beat. That's how everything started

Captain Jacks' songs are quite unique. You will find sound of army drill commands with a nice dance beat. Captain Jack is far from being a militarist group. http://www.eurodancehits.com/jack1.jpgThey are soldiers of a dancefloor and their weapon is groove. They only joke about real army. They say that when soldiers are doing drill, they move rhytmically and are very energic. If you would place them in the dancefloor and start play the music, they would do quite good. In their opinion, soldiers are good ravers but they do not know about it. Beside that, Liza simply likes unforms.

With the group are three cute dancing girls: Yvonne, Sandra and Sabine. At the very beginning Franky was not performing on stage. One of his friend: Durban was performing, however voice was coming from Franky. In December of 1995 Durban left, and Franky decided to start performing.

Their first track released in 1995 was "Captain Jack" and just recently "Drill Instructor". Both of these songs are in their first album: The Mission. Captain Jack was on extensive tournee in Germany in the Summer of 1996, when they promoted their nextsingle "Soldier, Soldier" which is also part of this album.

In the beginning of 1997 they released the new single "Together And Forever" (cat# 7243 8 83738 2 1, EMI) that appeared on their second album released in March 1997 entitiled: Operation Dance. Please refer to Dance Review Page (http://www.eurodancehits.com/review.html) for sampler and review of this single.

Captain Jack (band)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Jump to: navigation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Jack_%28band%29#column-one), search (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Jack_%28band%29#searchInput)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/9/94/Franky.jpg/120px-Franky.jpg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Franky.jpg) http://en.wikipedia.org/skins-1.5/common/images/magnify-clip.png (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Franky.jpg)
Franky Gee

Captain Jack was a musical duo, specializing in eurodance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurodance) music, originating from Germany (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany). Its members (since 2000) were Francisco Alejandro Gutierrez (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_Alejandro_Gutierrez) (stage name (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stage_name): Franky Gee), now deceased, and Sunny. The original female vocalist on the group's debut in 1995 was Liza Da Costa, replaced in 1999 by Maria Lucia 'Maloy' Lozanes, who was replaced by Ilka-Anna-Antonia Traue (stage name: Illi Love) in 2001.

The gimmick to Captain Jack's music (and Franky Gee's persona) is that of military training. Franky's costume consists of a stylized military general's uniform, with a red hat based on that of the US Marines (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Marine_Corps). Gutierrez chose this gimmick because of his service in the United States Army (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army), a career he despised but was forced to follow when he was strapped for cash. After ending his time in the US Army, Gutierrez remained in Germany, where he was last stationed, and began a recording career under the name "Westside".

While recording music under that name, he proposed the idea of a dance track based on a drill routine. That idea became his style: songs about peace and love in the style of a military regime, in protest against his years in the US Army. The hat a US Marines "barracks cover" hat, in the color scheme of the Russian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russia) Red Army (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Army) further protests the idea of the military, while symbolizing the idea of national unity.

The group has earned 19 gold and platinum records throughout Europe. Fans of the Konami (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konami) arcade game (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcade_game) Dance Dance Revolution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dance_Dance_Revolution) know them from the numerous songs that, through the Dancemania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dancemania) series of albums, have been used in the game series. The group's music was also featured in other Konami (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konami) music games such as beatmania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beatmania) and Dance Maniax (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dance_Maniax).

The future of Captain Jack suddenly came into doubt when Gutierrez suffered a cerebral hemorrhage whilst walking with his son in Spain on October 17 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_17), 2005 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005). Doctors predicted that the damage was fatal, and Gutierrez died on October 22 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_22), 2005 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005) after spending five days in a coma. Also referred to by many fans as "Captain Jack", the band's future without frontman Gutierrez is currently unknown.
