Lead Guitar – Mike Jacobs

Born in South Africa many rock n roll years ago.  Grew up in the Eighties playing pop rock in a band called Fennix who were a popular club and Festival band.  After a failed recording deal Mike  joined Mr Nobody who had considerable success playing concerts and arenas, the largest concert crowd being 20,000.  After dissapointing sales of the debut album and a sex change of the bass player the band split.  A hard rock band called Skin Palace was his next venture but this was short lived with only one moderately successful single being released.  He then moved to the UK settling in Telford.

Mike then studied Jazz piano and guitar and released 3 smooth jazz albums between 1996 and 2006.

Mike has always had a passion for recording and is currently in the studio working on a fusion style of music.

Mike is still a virgin.

Likes – PRS Guitars, Tequila, Biltong, Cape Town, Leather

join a band playing the 80’s songs that he grew up listening to.
