In the days of MTV and cassette tapes, HAMMERJACKS was one of the most important rock clubs in the world. In the '80s and '90s, the club was the heartbeat and musical identity of blue-collar Baltimore, MD. A favorite venue and hangout for artists like Iron Maiden, Warrant, KIX, Cinderella, Extreme and Wrathchild America, HAMMERJACKS closed it's legendary doors in 1997.
Twenty years later, a group of entrepreneurs are planning to re-open the club.
ENCORE: THE HAMMERJACKS ROCKUMENTARY memorializes the iconic original club, and follows the quest to reopen the club from Hammerjacks Entertainment CEO Kevin Butler's leap-of-faith decision to buy the Hammerjacks trademark to years planning and the eventual rebirth of a rock-and-roll legend.
