Jason Cale is originally from the deep south with roots ranging from New Orleans to Mobile, Alabama. While spending 20 years as a professional musician performing all over the world with both the Army and Air Force Bands, he has worked diligently on his craft producing albums and
working/collaborating/touring with artists including Grace Potter, Melina Leon, John Popper, Sandra Bernhard, Joe Bonamassa, and many others. After retiring from the military in 2019 and gaining a deeper understanding of music, the music industry, and business, he’s been blessed to find unity with his bandmates (two of whom are also retired military musicians) that are equally as passionate about their musical gifts. Out of this passion is how the Jason Cale Band was formed.
In addition to producing, performing and writing music, Jason spends multiple days a week teaching music and guitar to students ranging from ages 6 to 81. This is a position that Jason honors with great esteem and gratitude. His students can even be found gracing the stages of Jason’s performances from time to time.
Blending soulful blues rock, New Orleans funk, and jazz fusion elements into a musical gumbo, The Jason Cale Band creates a style all its own. Full of heart and soul, the music is inspired by the fearless musical offerings of the late 60’s and early 70’s. The band hails from Virginia Beach, Virginia, but has taken the show on the road, touring nationally and internationally, performing at venues of all sizes and also has conducted masterclasses and workshops at numerous conservatories and schools around the world.
