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.
The band has opened for Eric Gales, Foghat, and many other touring artists and has recently been accepted by the Virginia Commission for the Arts Touring Roster through FY2025.
They are currently working on their 3rd album with 4x Grammy winning producer, Robert Carranza.
