Jakob M. (Write Review) Florence, TX
Hey, guys. I'm a transplanted musician born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. I play many different styles of music on various instruments including guitar, saxophone, clarinet, flute, piano, and a few others. I take every opportunity I can to play music in any genre. I have played gigs ranging from Reggae, modern Pop and Hip-Hop all the way to 1920's swing music.My biggest influences on guitar are Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson and Stevie Ray Vaughan. My main influences on saxophone are Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and the more modern sounds of 'Blue' Lou Marini on the blues side. I grew up listening to classic rock and went to college at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. I now have my Masters in Music and plan to pursue the dream of teaching, playing and recording music professionally. I have a wonderful wife named Devin and a brilliant and beautiful son named Greyson. My ultimate dream is to be able to give them a happy and comfortable life by doing what I love: making music.
