DANNY JACOBSON takes you on a fantastic ride with tributes to the greatest singers of the 20th century including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Tom Jones, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond and Louis Armstrong. His vast vocal repertoire also includes spot-on impressions of over a hundred TV & Movie Stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood like Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Jack Benny, Cary Grant, Ed Sullivan, James Mason and Stan Laurel.
Danny demonstrated a gift for mimicry at an early age and began by entertaining his family and friends with impressions of Ed Sullivan, James Cagney, Walter Brennan, Ricky Nelson and Dennis Weaver (Chester on "Gunsmoke.") He was influenced as a youngster by master impressionists Frank Gorshin, Rich Little, Fred Travalena, Will Jordan, Guy Marks, David Frye, John Byner and Bob Anderson and never missed their appearances on TV.
Danny has enjoyed varied careers in the music industry as a radio broadcaster, music magazine publisher, concert promoter and voice-over talent. He has produced concerts with such music legends as Lou Rawls, Chuck Berry, B.B. King, Nancy Wilson, Mickey Gilley, Etta James, Conway Twitty and others.
Upon retirement from the music business, Danny felt the time was right to pursue a career as a professional impressionist. His big break came in 2007 when Danny was invited to team up with Las Vegas and network TV variety show veteran Jill Jaxx to form the duo "Jaxx & Jacobson." It was Jill who took note of his raw talent potential and, with her show business experience, helped him develop into the seasoned entertainer he is today. In addition to their own solo acts, Jill and Danny still perform together frequently for audiences all over Southern California.
Although Danny has been involved in other music related careers, he never stopped practicing and perfecting his TV, movie star and singing impressions. Today, he performs well over a hundred shows each year and is living the dream that began over 50 years ago as a young boy.
