After 10 years fronting the Baltimore band The Bridge, Cris Jacobs is continuing to show his depth and range as a gifted songwriter and performer with the new Cris Jacobs Band. This line-up of stellar musicians, featuring the upright bass wizardry of Jake Leckie, the textured drumming of former Bridge bandmate Mike Gambone, the beautiful pedal steel guitar work of Dave Hadley, and the blissful harmony singing and percussion of Ed Hough, is a perfect complement Cris’ deeply expressive vocals, passionate, gritty guitar playing, and poignant songwriting. The unique instrumentation and rich sonic palate create an instantly engaging sound that ranges from intensely rockin’ to sublimely sweet to hauntingly psychedelic. Cris’ prolific songbook provides the fertile ground for this amazing group of players to express their distinct voices, and with their monster chops and improvisational fearlessness, CJB can create a truly transcendental live experience.
