The Piano Man's Piano Man

Cabaret Series Featuring Jeff Jacobs

Jeff Jacobs, "The Piano Man's Piano Man," brings his "one man, one piano" solo rock-n-roll piano show to Raue Center For The Arts at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 19! This live show will feature the music of Billy Joel, Foreigner, The Beatles, Jeff Jacobs... and too many classic rock songs to mention. Jeff takes you on a nostalgic musical journey through his solo piano/vocal interpretations of some of the greatest rock, pop, and soul music ever written.

Jeff Jacobs is an accomplished pianist, vocalist, keyboardist, producer, composer and storyteller. A member of Foreigner from 1990 – 2008, Jacobs is currently touring with Foreigner vocalist, Lou Gramm. Jacobs has appeared on several Billy Joel albums and tours most notably "Storm Front" and "River of Dreams," and has earned the title of "The Piano Man's Piano Man." Joel himself has used this name to describe Jacobs on many occasions.

In addition to his work recording and touring with Foreigner and Billy Joel, Jacobs has also toured with Julian Lennon and has performed as a keyboard player for artists such as Dennis De Young and Grayson Hughes. Jacobs has also recorded with Laura Brannigan and worked as a musical director for Australian giant Tina Arena.

Jacobs has written and produced for blues artists including Lonnie Brooks, Sugar Blue, Honeyboy Edwards, Pine Top Perkins, Carl Weathersby, Wayne Baker Brooks, Ronnie Brooks and Shemekia Copeland. Jacobs has also written and produced songs for gospel artist and Tony-Award winner Heather Headley, as well as rappers Twista and GLC. Jacobs' songwriting credits also include co-writes with Mick Jones and Lou Gramm of Foreigner as well as Jim Peterik of Survivor and Ides of March. His latest release is the critically acclaimed "All Blue To Me."
