Familiar to most as the “other guitar player in Dire Straits,” Jack Sonni is a writer, musician, nomadic raconteur, father and grandfather who has taken to heart the reality in the hard-learned lesson that Life is Short. He has embraced a philosophy to Live Well and Live Now in pursuit of creating memorable moments with friends and family.
