At 26, this young performer has established himself as a mature and talented improviser, connecting blues, jazz, gospel, R & B and soul. His powerful live performances have already heard Europe, the United States and Asia. This evening, the Will Jacobs Band will fill your evening with juicy and sleek, author and well-known blues tunes.
Will was born in Chicago, where at the age of 12 he already played in clubs, performing on the backs of the best blues performers. In 2009, Will and his first group, Dirty Deal, attracted attention by performing at the Blues Show in Memphis, immediately after winning the Chicago Blues Challenge-Youth Division competition. After that, Will continued his studies at the Boston Berklee College of Music. Then followed sessions in Chicago, an American tour with CJ Chenier and even a performance in Sri Lanka. Will Jacobs honed his skills in an old-fashioned, but effective way - experience. In 2016, he began playing in Berlin with Marcos Koll, as well as performing with world-class musicians at festivals in Poland, Spain and France. Today he is one of the most famous young blues performers.
The musicians of the Will Jacobs Band perform blues standards and original compositions with passion and incredible dedication. Each time proving that their level of skill is far beyond their age. Will’s hoarse, deep voice to the accompaniment of a mixture of blues, R & B and soul brings good old blues to a whole new level. They say that these guys have a future.
