Jerry Jacobs Live at ENVB

97.3 Eagles Nest Virginia Beach
600 Nevan Rd
Virginia Beach, VA  23451 (Map)

Jerry Jacobs band is coming to the Virginia Beach Eagles Nest. His high energy shows are one of the best we have seen.
Country artist and songwriter Jerry Jacobs landed onto Nashville’s music scene in early 2014, and has been making noise in Music City and across the nation ever since. Hailing from the coast of the Carolinas, the Charleston native draws influences from country legends and 90’s rock hit makers alike. “My first musical experience was a Hootie and the Blowfish concert when I was 5,” explains Jacobs. After finding his musical calling as a child, he immediately fell in love with the stage – a love affair that continues to this day and is apparent in his electrifying performances.

Only weeks after graduating from Clemson University, Jacobs scored gigs at some of Nashville’s most famous honky tonks. After putting together a band and breaking in his boots on lower Broadway, Jacobs hit the road to the tune of 250 shows a year. Jacobs and his band are nationally renowned for a high-energy live show that seamlessly drifts across genre lines and feels like a Saturday night dirt road dance down memory lane. It has captivated audiences from coast to coast as Jacobs has headlined shows from New Jersey to San Diego, and almost everywhere in between.

Jacobs’ love of performing is only rivaled by his passion for songwriting. Diving headfirst into Nashville’s iconic songwriting community was intimidating at first. “It was absolutely crazy and incredibly nerve-wracking to sit in a room and work with the writers of my favorite songs growing up,” Jacobs explains. A devotion to well-crafted songs has awarded Jacobs multiple opportunities, including a song placement on a major TV network and interest in his songs from major and up-and-coming artists alike.

Jacobs’ first single ‘Maybe Tonight’ was met with glowing reviews and sparked interest in the young artist’s energetic blend of country and rock. Whiskey Riff comments, “It’s fresh and fun but still has a bit of twang to it.” The overwhelmingly positive response sent Jacobs right back into the studio to work on his full-length record, 'Carolina Tonight'. Jacobs comments, “I love and have lived every song on this record, and I couldn’t be more excited to share them.” The highly anticipated full-length release debuted as the #15 country album on iTunes, and the excitement around Jacobs' young career continues to grow. Jacobs and his band hit the road in support of the release on a national tour beginning on March 9th, 2017. If ‘Maybe Tonight’ “may be your new favorite song,” Jerry Jacobs might be your favorite new artist. Check out the debut album and catch a live show in a city near you.

Jerry Jacobs is joined onstage nightly by:

Bronze James / Lead Guitar, Vocals
Chuck Miracle / Drums, Vocals
Jimi Jones / Bass

Vienna Boys Choir

Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
201 Market St
Virginia Beach, VA  23462 (Map)

Beloved for its pure, heavenly sound, this internationally revered choir can trace its history as far back as the 13th century, and despite the youth of its singers, represents an art form steeped in tradition and history. Today, boys audition for the choir from around the world; many of them have fathers or even grandfathers who were choir members. The full choir is divided into four equally gifted touring groups, each led by its own conductor and accompanied by tutors. The group who will be presented by the Virginia Arts Festival includes boys from Austria, Cambodia, China, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and the Philippines. They will be led by their spirited Italian choirmaster Manolo Cagnin, who has traveled with the group throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia. He chooses repertoire to match the boys’ voices and personalities—including, in the case of these December performances, some of the best-loved holiday music ever written. Order your tickets early, as previous Virginia Arts Festival performances of the Vienna Boys Choir have sold out!... See MoreSee Less

Black Jacket Symphony performs Tom Petty's Damn The Torpedoes

Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
201 Market St
Virginia Beach, VA  23462 (Map)

***Tickets on Sale Friday, November 17 at 10am ***
The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. A selected album is performed in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, with no sonic detail being overlooked--the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album - in this case, it’s Tom Petty’s Damn The Torpedoes

The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features Tom Petty’s Damn The Torpedoes being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set, which features a selection of Tom Petty's "greatest hits," opens in full contrast to the first set with an incredible light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show.
