Our Story:  

Jacob Daniels started writing and performing his original music at a young age.  Two monumental influences of his were Richie Havens, and the Woodstock Festival. He began honing his craft at coffeehouses and small venues. He and Dan met by chance in college and automatically clicked. They have been regulars on the cover band circuit since, under the name 'Jake & Dan'

Jake & Dan have become a well known staple in NJ over the years, having had the honor of performing as the house band for the 2013 NJTC Awards at the Hyatt in Princeton, NJ. They have opened for Eric Martin (of Mr. Big fame) at Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ. They've played the Atlantic Highlands Breast Cancer Awareness Event, the 2014 & 2015 Highlands, NJ Chilifest, the Rahway Culture Crawl as well as many other festivals and street fairs. Jake & Dan have also been a featured monthly act at World of Beer in New Brunswick and Off the Hook in the Highlands.

Bassist Kevin Krueger & Drummer Andy Herschman are the back bone of the band. They have been involved with Jacob for years, as well.  Playing with Jacob and Dan in Top 40 cover bands, original bands, trios. and four piece bands;  these guys are a strong, tight, and powerful rhythm section... The glue that holds together the band.

Dan, Kevin and Andy have played together both in studio and live instances, adding their unique style and touches to Jacobs material.  The result is a one of a kind Alternative, Bluesy, Folk Americana Rock & Roll. There has always been something that naturally clicks and gels.

Jacob, Dan, Kevin and Andy's hearts have always been in original music, but they've never had any professional release with this band.  Over the years Jacob has written a large catalog of music, and has brought those songs to the stage with Dan, Kevin and Andy.  Jacob Daniels & the Rounds are looking to make this dream into a reality, and professionally record and release an EP album.

Hey everyone!

The Jacob Daniels Band is hard at work recording in Red Bank, NJ at Hi-Voltage studios!

We're more than halfway done, and just about halfway to our GoFundMe goal.

We've released a video showing some unmixed, unfinished demos of our songs. This is what we've accomplished so far. They aren't anywhere near done, but we wanted to give a treat to all of those watching our page, and donating.

We're thrilled with the progress and how everything is coming together so far. We wouldn't be here without any of you.

We will be going back into the studio next week to start recording vocals and our 4th track 'Thank God I Can Sing'.

Thank you so much to all of those who donated, shared our link, and believe in us.

Please check out the video, and see the progress we've made. See the dream you've helped us turn into a reality.

We're so excited to finish this EP, and start performing these songs live. We know everyone will love it and can't wait!

Stay tuned!

Jacob, Dan, Kevin, & Andy

Hello to all our donors! We havent forgotten about you at all. Without you we wouldn’t have gotten this far. Thank you all.

Some updates!!!

We have just finished recording bass on 3 out of 4 songs and we’ve moved on to recording lead guitar and vocals (more vocals at the next session). With every session you can hear these songs take form and we couldnt be more psyched!

After a lot of thought and discussion, we have decided to change out one of the songs. Instead of “Pedictable” we are recording “Thank God I Can Sing”. This wasnt an easy decision but we feel that it was too new of a song to get all the parts ready in time and “Thank god...” is one we all know and already have direction for. This will cut down on production time and will make sure that every dollar donated will be used efficiently.
To hear a solo version of the new song go to:

Your faith and support is not taken lightly and we owe it to you and ourselves to make this happen! We will not let you down!

We can't thank you enough for your support! We just wrapped up recording the drum tracks for 3 out of the 4 songs and we're going back to the studio to lay down some bass and acoustic guitar! Any and all help is greatly appreciated, especially around this time of year, even simply sharing our link or video.
