Matt, Dirk and Bram are born rockers. Their music is influenced by classic seventies rock, ‘over the top’ eighties rock and of course the blues. By combining these influences and their personal talents they have created a unique style. The Matt Jacobs Band is a small band that creates a wall of sound and living proof that you don't have to be heavily bearded and drink a bottle of whisky a day to play the rock and blues as it should be played. This power trio is gaining popularity fast and has proven to be one of the best live bands around. Come and check it out! You'll find some fine music videos in our media section. The band can also be booked as an acoustic act! Click here to send us an e-mail!

The new cd will be released on FRIDAY OCTOBER 30! 't Oude Pothuys in Utrecht will be packed on that friday evening. We will start our show around eleven in the evening and you will be able to buy the cd. Check our Facebook page for news and listen to our songs on Spotify! 

The Matt Jacobs Band plays original songs and songs from artists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, ZZ Top and Focus. Matt Jacobs Band on Spotify

The Matt Jacobs Band are:
Matt Jacobs on guitar
Bram Jacobs on drums
Dirk Pauwels on bass and vocals


The band has proven to be one of the best live bands around. Come and check it out. We'll be playing near you very soon! Want to book the band? Send an e-mail to info@matt-jacobs.com

  • Matt Jacobs is the guitarist and founder of the band. Beware of the furious guitar solos and powerful riffs produced by the dexterous hands of Matt! Matt uses hand built Ernst Fliek amps and his Piet Visser guitar exclusively. Tone from the lowlands of Holland!

  • Dirk is the lead vocalist and bass player in the band. This guy can do almost everything. He’s not only a great musician, but he can fix and build stuff as well! Dirk never parts with his precision bass; rumour has is that Dirks even sleeps with his precious...

  • Bram plays the drums. You know Animal from the Muppet Show. Animal is a sissy compared to Bram. He shows skill, power and perfect time and takes care of most of the bookings. Some guy, huh? Bram always plays his sparkling white Ludwig set.
