Cris Jacobs

Cris Jacobs

Cris Jacobs is a Baltimore, MD resident and a fan favorite in the DMV. Cris spent a decade as the principal songwriter, guitarist, and frontman for The Bridge (2001-2011). Jacobs has toured nationally with such musical greats such as Steve Winwood and Ivan Neville.

We are extremely fortunate to have Cris and his Fender Telecaster delight audiences throughout the DMV region performing solo, with friends, or as part of a composite band such as Everyone Orchestra.  Jacob's yearly pre-Christmas shows, A Very Jerry Christmas, are a fan favorites and not to be missed.
