Well, If you had told a year ago that I would part of a release with not only my old band mate Sweetpea Atkinson but my very good friend Mindi Abair I might not have believed it. A sit in with the Boneshakers by Mindi last year at the Hyatt Newport Festival turned into a full on tour and a new CD. Make sure you all check it out via Pledge Music.
If you haven’t seen this joining yet you are missing out. After another standing ovation performance last night at the Jazz on the Vine Fest at Lake Elkhart, Wisconsin, the band (Mindi Abair, Randy Jacobs, Sweetpea Atkinson, Derek Frank, Third Richardson, and sitting in for (keyboard master Rodney Lee) David Yaden are looking forward to upcoming shows on the west coast.

Hello Beautiful People, as the Dave Koz and friends summer tour is almost done I want say what a fun time this tour has been. Nate Kearney Jr. (bass) as been a fine new addition to the band and his playing and humor are both awesome and fun. BeBe Winans is incredible and vocalist Margaret Bell is a star in her own right.Anyway,look for me elsewhere for September, October and early November with various artists including my own Boneshakers and Randy Jacobs Dynamite, Plus Soul 7, Richard Elliot and Brian Simpson (and a few more to come). Starting late November I will once again join the Dave Koz Xmas Tour for a month and then in January 2013 I will be on the Smooth Jazz Cruise for two weeks.Check my Showdates page for updates.I will see you all somewhere.
All my best Randy
