Welcome to the Gulf Coast! Home of The MJB. Where the sea, salt, lime, and tequila flow as fluently as the music. The Music of the Gulf Coast is a unique mix. Due to the geographical location, musicians growing up in the Houston area seem to have a birthright to a wealth of musical influences from around the region. From the Zydeco of neighboring Louisiana, to the Tejano of Mexico, The Mitch Jacobs Band has been exposed to it all.
Mitch has strived over the years as a native Houstonian to recruit players indigenous to Houston, and the Gulf Coast. His current five man band of pirates are all Houston natives, thus keeping their unique versatility alive and close to home. Mitch goes further to keep it close to home by calling on the help of other bands, musicians, and songwriters in his own backyard on recording projects as well. It’s evident on his latest release on the Indie label, SteadyBoy Records, recorded at Houston’s famed Sugarhill Studios, titled “Gulf Coast Jamboree.” This is where Mitch and his producer, Texas Music Hall of Famer, Freddie Krc, used the help of more Houstonians, Norma Zenteno/duet vocal harmony, and Norma Zenteno Band members, Javier Zenteno/percussion, Randy Holland/trumpet, and Richard Saldovar/sax and keys.
Live, The MJB is a Gulf Coast “Gumbo” of Cajun, Country, Rock, Border, and Blues that is a “must see.” We thank you for visiting the website, and hope you will visit as much as you like for concert dates, band news, booking, discography, and other info.
