“Hillbilly-roots guitar/stompbox maestro”
After a long and seasoned career as a bassist and sideman to many, clocking up an impressive list of albums and international tours along the way, Bill Jacobi has more recently been embracing the role of singer/songwriter, solo performer and one-man-band. Jacobi has played and recorded with some of Australia's most iconic artists such as Shane Howard, Neil Murray, The Warumpi Band and Gangagang.
As a solo artist, Bill plays rootsy folk that uses foot percussion, lap slide, open-tuned guitars and banjo, with a combination of fingerpicking and bassline driven rhythm. The result is a repertoire of up-beat and engaging material that runs the gamut from folk to funk to hillbilly stomp and beyond.
This is lively, driven music played by a pro whose skills tell of miles of roads and years at the helm. It's going to warm the cockles of your heart and get your toes tapping!
Authentic, fresh food, with Khanthaly's already legendary Asian street-market delights on offer and a cocktail, wine and beer selection for die for. We recommend a Stone and Wood beer to accompany this wonderful music!
