Who knew that the Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law & Justice had his own all-star rock ‘n’ roll band? Enjoy some classic rock with The Jay Sekulow Band.
Most conservatives are familiar with the many achievements of Jay Sekulow’s American Center for Law & Justice, as well as his frequent media appearances on behalf of conservative issues, but few are aware that when Sekulow isn’t advocating for the ACLJ agenda, or hosting his own daily radio talk show, or representing President Trump as part his his personal legal team, he is rocking out on drums and guitar with The Jay Sekulow Band.
Sekulow publicly revealed his musical alter-ego back in November of 2014, when he quietly published a page on Facebook announcing the band. Since that time, The Jay Sekulow Band has released dozens of videos showcasing covers of rock & roll classics, as well as a number of original compositions.
Sekulow’s bandmates include John Elefante (vocals / percussion), Scott Kirkman on bass, guitarists Marco Pangallo and Mark Lee Townsend, Steve Guthrie on keyboards, and vocalist John Schlitt.
Astute rock historians might recognize the name of band member John Elefante, best known as the former frontman for the rock band Kansas. Vocalist John Schlitt was formerly the long time lead singer of the pioneering Christian rock band, Petra.
The bands videos have featured luminaries such as Ricky Skaggs, Joe Vitale, and Lee Greenwood.
So sit back, relax … and sing along with the best Capitol Hill cover band on either side of the aisle as they perform your classic rock favorites.

About the American Center for Law and Justice
Founded in 1990 with the mandate to protect religious and constitutional freedoms, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) engages legal, legislative, and cultural issues by implementing an effective strategy of advocacy, education, and litigation that includes representing clients before the Supreme Court of the United States and international tribunals around the globe.
As ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow continued to build his legal and legislative team, the ACLJ experienced tremendous success in litigating cases at all levels of the judiciary – from the federal district court level to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Over the last two decades, Sekulow has appeared before the Supreme Court of the United States on numerous occasions, successfully arguing precedent-setting cases before the high Court: Protecting the free speech rights of pro-life demonstrators. Safeguarding the constitutional rights of religious groups to have equal access to public facilities. Ensuring that public school students could form and participate in religious organizations, including Bible clubs, on campus. Guaranteeing that minors could participate in the political process by protecting their free speech rights in the political setting. (ACLJ.org)
