He’s made a lot of them. He also makes records for other people. You’ve probably heard some of them. Mike also likes swords and looking at weird things in antique stores. He raises ducks and geese or some kind of bird. He also raises kids. Life is funny and Mike McClure laughs at it.
Jeff Jacobs Band
Jeff Jacobs Band maintains a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in Texas. Their old school approaches of reaching fans one by one has definitely helped them earn this title and are touted by industry insiders as the way to succeed in this music economy. Jeff says, “It’s like knocking on doors. Eventually one will open and when it does be prepared! We want to build relationships with our fans and this is the way to do it.”
It helps when the music interests a wide variety of fans. “We appeal to people who listen to country and even some that regularly don’t. People tell us all the time that we don’t sound like anyone else,” and this is a natural reaction to Jeff, as he puts it, “because every song speaks to those who listen.” This individuality has earned them notice at every venue, and there is a common response. “We’ll play a set and take a break and fans come up and say ‘Where the hell have you been!’ like we’ve been hiding in plain sight,” chuckles Jeff.
