Jacob Jeffries Band at Seaside July 14
Seaside Amphitheater – 7 p.m.
The Seaside Summer Concert Series every Wednesday hosts popular acts from across the southeast, and beyond, in the Seaside Amphitheater.
July 14, Jacob Jeffries Band will perform Jacob Groten is a vegetarian, has broken fourteen bones and, most importantly, has managed to cull a musical range that walks the line from John Lennon to Freddy Mercury, with inflections of Jeff Buckley vocal perfection, Tom Petty jive and the mere joy of the rock n’ roll musical. Though Groten had played on albums for Latin Grammy award winner Obie Bermudez, his biggest break came when the young musician signed on with Warner Chappell publishing. His band, the Jacob Jeffries Band, started making waves in South Florida, but has recently rolled its rhythm over state lines. This past January, the band played the Sundance Film Festival and SXSW in Austin, Texas. A Miami Herald article on the Jacob Jefferies Band’s recent release said that their EP is “bursting with hook-filled melodies and dramatic, instantly likable vocals, which foretells a bright future for the piano-popster.”
