Back on the road

It’s felt like a long time coming but Jacob’s Story are back gigging and having fun in towns and cities all round the North West. With the addition of Sam and Leigh on guitars we hit the road in January and have had a busy schedule since the start of the year only stopping for a small writing break in March.

At the end of the month (27th March) we put our hand in to compete at band royale in Southport’s Fox and goose. Bourny and Danny hXc went to the opening night and if that is anything to go by the competition is going to be a lot of fun with some awesome acts, so we hope to see you down there! Details found here:

Make sure you keep an eye on the facebook page for all our upcoming gigs

Also keep checking our reverb nation page to hear our stuff and as an added bonus an acoustic cover of Kryptonite





How time flies! It’s been almost a year since we played as a full band, and despite several promising starts with replacement members nothing concrete has come from it. So now we’re looking for a new guitarist. Ideally someone who can sing as well, although that’s not a deal breaker so don’t worry if you can’t.

If you can travel to Preston twice a week for practice, dedicate time and energy to the band and be committed to recording and gigging then you might be just what we’re looking for.

As you may know our guitarist Bourny also pulls double duty on bass for those noisy bastards known as Rotcor. They recently recorded a live video for their awesome new track Dead, filmed at the one and only Rampage. Check it out below!

We’ve got a rather tasty unplugged gig coming up at Where’s Mavis on 29th April. We’ll be playing with the super talented Jamie Brewer and Heisenberg Project. Seriously, go check those guys out.

BUT ALSO the 29th is our BFF Alex’s birthday so it’s double the reason to come out and party with us!

No drummer? No problem!

Despite the drum stool sitting vacant we’ve been hitting rehearsals harder than ever. With no drummer practice has become an acoustic affair; we’ve written a ton of stuff and it’s been an interesting experience to write and play a different style of music. Since these songs are unlikely to see light of day in the full band we’re planning a few special unplugged gigs to showcase them and keep the Jacob’s Story machine well oiled and gig-ready! Keep your eyes peeled for the dates, we can’t wait to get back on the stage.

Drummer needed!

Our drummer Kieron has unfortunately decided to step back from Jacob’s Story. We wish him all the best for the future and feel gutted we never got the chance to play live together.

That now means we’re on the hunt for a new drummer to join our ranks. We’re looking for a committed musician with a professional attitude and their own equipment. We need someone who can commit to both the time and financial needs of a band; we rehearse twice a week and band room rent is around £35-40 per month, plus ad hoc costs for transport to and from gigs.

We’re looking for someone with the drive and the passion to make being in a band work, someone who is eager to write, record and play live and most importantly who enjoys it and wants to have fun with it! We take our band and our music seriously, but the foundation of Jacob’s Story is that we all have fun doing it.

If you’re interested please get in touch!



Not a drummer? Don’t know any drummers? Please share this post with your friends, you never know who might know someone!

Playing at the Variety in Preston. Great gig, great bands, great company. If you missed us check the calendar for the next gig or get in touch for an EP.

We’re super sad to announce that our drummer Phil is leaving the band after our gig this Friday at Rampage.

This means it’s a show not to be missed, come on down and let’s give him the send off he deserves!
