Jeff Jacobs Band interests a wide variety of fans. “We appeal to people who listen to country and even some that regularly don’t. People tell us all the time that we don’t sound like anyone else,” and this is a natural reaction to Jeff, as he puts it, “because every song speaks to those who listen.” This individuality has earned them notice at every venue, and there is a common response. “We’ll play a set and take a break and fans come up and say ‘Where the hell have you been!’ like we’ve been hiding in plain sight,” chuckles Jeff.
Since their latest release in October 2015, they were nominated for best new band of 2017 and Jeff Jacobs took home the Best New Male Artist of 2017 from the Big Star 97 awards. Other notable mentions are a Finalist for Homer’s Backyard Ball battle of the bands, Hard Rock Cafe’s Battle of the Bands runner up, and two charting singles on the Texas Regional Radio Report. Jeff Jacobs Band also collaborated with The Roundup in Boerne, Texas to create the Black Friday Texas Music Festival to support Texas music. Jeff explain his reasoning for promoting the festival “We need to start taking care of each other and this festival was meant to be just that. I see so many great artists in Texas and it’s time for them to be heard!” Jeff Jacobs Band is set to return to the studio in 2018 for their second, and this time, full-length album.
