The Matt Jacobs Band set out to prove that you don't have to be in your fifties and drink a bottle of Whisky a day to play the blues. Seeing them on stage proves their point.
Guitarist Matt Jacobs formed the band in 2005 together with three friends who share his ambition to hit the Dutch stages and treat the audiences to powerful bluesrock.
Their first mission was to record a CD. 'A tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan' is both a compliment to the late guitarvirtuoso and a token of their confidence. You'll find the recordings on this site.
The Matt Jacobs Band plays songs originally recorded by artists such as Johnny Lang, Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Kenny Wayne Shepherd as well as classics from Fleetwood Mac, Derek and the Dominoes, Led Zeppelin and a growing number of original work.
The Matt Jacobs Band consists of Matt Jacobs on guitar, his brother Bram on drums, Dirk Pauwels on bass and vocals.
