Steve Jacobs (aka Stevie Swing) is a popular Chicago Jazz Crooner, top Sinatra Tribute Artist and versatile Retro-Pop Entertainer.
He's been bringing music lovers to their feet and dance floors across Chicago and The Midwest for over 20 years with his refreshing brand of classic sounds!
Steve's first gig was his 6th Grade Variety Show in Park Ridge, IL., performing Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head. "When I was a kid I got a guitar, bought Beatles Records, watched Elvis Movies & listened to my Dad play Sinatra on his old 78's. I guess I was taking it all in." His music appreciation grew with Mary Seat Of Wisdom Sunday Guitar Mass, Maine South Choir & Jazz Band, High School Dance gigs and performing with his pal at Chicagoland Ground Rounds ("We were probably responsible for those closing.")
With a degree in Communications and emphasis in Italian & Music from NIU, his passion for singing & songwriting has included performing over the years with his own groups and top Chicago Orchestras & Big Bands at Performance Arts Theatres, The Alpine Valley Music Theatre, The Copernicus Center, Italian Festivals, Milwaukee Summerfest, Charity Galas, Weddings, Special Events and Concerts across Chicago & The Midwest.
Steve is grateful to be performing the music he loves with some of Chicago’s
most renown working musicians, from Swing, Rat Pack & Jazz to Classic Pop,
Rock & Country. It is his acclaimed Chicago Rat Pack Tribute for which he is most known, capturing the sound, style and vibe of 'Ol Blue Eyes In Concert (Dino too!)
More true Sinatra Stylist than attempted look-a-like Sinatra Impersonator, with power house vocals and exceptional jazz ensembles, Steve performs favorites, rarities and iconic live albums such as “Sinatra at the Sands” and "The Main Event". Solo, Duo, Trio & with the swingin' Summer Wind Band, expanded shows may also include his spot-on "mini-tributes" to other American Musical Icons such as Dean Martin, Elvis, Neil Diamond & Johnny Cash!
