Jeff Jacobs Band Our Featured Artist Starting Sunday June 9, 2013 On A1-Country, Lightning Country

The Jeff Jacobs Band is a rockin' Texas quintet that blends country, rock, and a little southern spice to create a sound like no other. While guitar driven you will hear the songs blended well with vocal harmonies as well as some steel guitar and the occasional mandolin. The rhythm section stays tight in the pocket to compliment all the creative sounds coming out of the guitar trio. Original songs are the way of this band. You may here an occasional cover but the passion of the band members has them constantly working on and performing their own creative material. A very eclectic group that pound for pound can take the stage with just about any group in the scene.

The Jeff Jacobs Band was formed in San Antonio by veteran musicians Jeff Jacobs and Nathan Schmidt in the winter of 2012. Both were in previous Texas bands such as Vendetta Mind, Distorted Reality, Thumbs Revenge, and Jeff Lubin and the Jtrain. Jeff and Nathan wanted to form an original band unlike what they have been hearing in the scene. Jeff posted an online ad looking for musicians. CJ Gore (Rockus Circus, The Standouts) answered the ad and Jeff went to see him perform. Jeff then invited CJ to take part in a jam session with Nathan and himself. The three hit it off and were ready to get the train down the tracks. Shortly after words Gil Ramirez answered the same ad and joined the group. He was a perfect fit. The guys rehearsed a handful of times and felt that something was missing from the group. Jeff decided to call up his friend and former band mate Jeff Cox. After one rehearsal the group knew he was the right man for the job. The Jeff Jacobs band continues to rehearse and is taking their show on the road.
