Their approach to music is characterized by pure harmonies and tight rhythms. They play crowd pleasing songs covering the biggest hits from bands like Aerosmith and Journey to Bruno Mars and Maroon 5. Nominated by the Maryland Music Awards for Top Cover Band in 2014 and 2015, the band has performed with many amazing artists over the past ten years.

Chris Jacobs

Cris Jacobs

Cris Jacobs is a fixture in Maryland’s music scene - even called "The King of Baltimore rock'n'roll" by Baltimore magazine. With a mix of rock, folk, soul, and funk – Jacobs’ music is a celebration of life and a reminder that there's beauty to be found everywhere, if you just take a moment to color where you are. "What am I trying to do with my music?" Jacobs muses. "The simple answer is this: I’m trying to connect with people…”.

Jah Works

Jah Works

Jah Works is a true grassroots success story that emerged from Baltimore’s reggae scene over 20 years ago. This is music made by and for lovers of real, authentic reggae music. Consistently performing hundreds of shows a year worldwide, they have forged their sound in clubs, festivals and on the sun-drenched beaches of Negril. Their sound is firmly planted in the roots of Jamaican music and culture, encompassing rock steady, reggae, and elements of dancehall and dub. What Jah Works does best is introduce the novice music listener to the fullness of reggae music and culture.
