There’s always a party happening somewhere, and Jakubi provide the perfect soundtrack. That’s why the Melbourne, Australia quintet— brothers Jerome [vocals,
keys, talkbox] & Jacob Farah [bass, moog], cousins Jesse Rehaut [drums, guitar] & Adam Kane [guitar, keys],
and longtime friend Rob Amoruso [guitar, keys, drums]
—immediately attracted a growing audience with their swinging, slick, and sizzling sonic buffet of pop, R&B, hip hop, rock, and soul since first emerging in 2012.

It all started as a good time... Jacob began hanging out at the Melbourne house Jesse and Adam shared. Soon,
he invited his brother, while Adam reached out to Rob. Unassumingly coming together, they would rock all night in an upstairs jam room, inviting patrons of the bar below to
experience the burgeoning magic.

In 2013, they uploaded “Can’t Afford It All” to Soundcloud, and it swept the internet with 500,000-plus plays in a month. A Kygo remix would swiftly cross the 5-million mark as the boys received an invite to tour with Fish Bone in the United States during early 2014. And they have been lighting up stages across America & Australia ever since. “I believe our live shows are our strongest point,” exclaims Jerome. “That’s where we’re really at home.”
Jul Big Green
Jul Big Green
Jul is a diverse musician from Cleveland, Ohio with styles that range from Pop-Rock, Hip-Hop, and Jazzy acoustic. Growing up in a musical family led him to develop a passion for the art at a young age. This passion would later drive him to receiving a degree from Akron University in music and also to start his solo and group projects under the name Jul Big Green. Through his music he conveys a positive message to his listeners while also giving them an enjoyable musical aspect. While he reaches to younger generations, his diverse arrangement of songs pulls in an even more diverse group of people.

“I have such a wide musical interest and I can’t pick just one style, so I figured why not make music for everybody…I want my music to be positive. I want my music to convey a positive, not to be confused with happy, message. Whether it’s Rock, Hip-Hop, Love or Pop Song.”

Jul can be seen performing either as a solo artist or with his full band at many locations around Cleveland and has also done several tours touching Florida, Michigan, and New York. This unique artist truly accomplishes his goal of having at least “one song for everyone”, so if you’re someone who can never decide what to listen to check out this artist.
