Jacob Stiefel Band w/ Trade Day Troubadours live at The Hummingbird in Downtown Macon

June 17, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 2:00 am

| $5

ON THE HEELS OF HIS 3RD RELEASE, “THE MEMPHIS SESSIONS,” JACOB STIEFEL (STEE-FULL) IS BUILDING STEAM, AND ISN’T PLANNING ON SLOWING DOWN ANY TIME SOON.

JACOB, CURRENTLY BASED IN NASHVILLE, TN, WAS BORN AND RAISED IN FORT PAYNE, AL, WHERE HIS LOVE AFFAIR WITH MUSIC BEGAN. HIS EARLIEST MUSICAL MEMORIES ARE HIS MOTHER DANCING WITH HIM AT 2 OR 3 YEARS OLD TO WILLIE NELSON’S “RED HEADED STRANGER,” AND LISTENING TO HIS GRANNY’S CASSETTE TAPES OF ELVIS PRESLEY AND LITTLE RICHARD, AFTER KINDERGARTEN. AFTER TWO YEARS OF PIANO LESSONS AT 7 & 8, HE STARTED GUITAR LESSONS AT AGE 9 AND HASN’T PUT IT DOWN SINCE.

THROUGHOUT CHILDHOOD, JACOB CLAIMS HIS MUSICAL TASTE & SOUND WAS MOLDED BY THE RECORD AND 8-TRACK COLLECTION FROM HIS FATHER. “I CAN REMEMBER DAD FIRST SHOWING ME HOW TO LOWER THE NEEDLE ONTO THE GROOVES OF THE VINYL RECORDS. WHEN I GREW TALL ENOUGH TO REACH THE RECORD SHELVES, AND HE TRUSTED ME ENOUGH TO ALLOW IT, I WAS OFF TO THE RACES. BOB SEGER, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, WILLIE NELSON, WAYLON JENNINGS, TED NUGENT, AC/DC, CHARLIE DANIELS… IT WAS LIKE AUDIO HEAVEN…” DURING HIGH SCHOOL, JACOB WOULD LEARN AND PERFORM MANY OF THESE SONGS FOR HIS FRIENDS AT PARTIES AND GET-TOGETHERS. AT THE AGE OF 15 HE BEGAN PLAYING BASS IN “THE SHARPS”, A GOSPEL QUARTET/BAND THAT TOURED AROUND THE SOUTHEAST. THROUGH BOTH OF THESE, HE REALLY BEGAN TO DEVELOP HIS LOVE FOR PERFORMANCE AND TRAVEL. A LOVE THAT WOULD CONTINUE TO GROW.
