“Jeff Jensen Band features blues the way it’s supposed to be: firm in the grasp of tradition while offering a fresh voice that can be enjoyed by any audience.”
— Jim Santella (Southland Blues Magazine)
Growing up listening to 50’s, 60’s and 70’s Rock –N-Roll, the Blues was always just a step away. So when Jeff started playing guitar at age 11 the significance of blues was overwhelming. Flirting with different styles of music like Rock and Roll, Funk, Punk Rock and Jazz through high school, Jeff landed his first blues gigs at age 19 as a guitarist. Soon after he was hired to front a southern California blues band that gigged a few times a month from San Diego to Ventura.
In 2003 Jeff Jensen and Chris Sabie founded the Santa Clarita Blues Society. Jeff and Chris traveled to Memphis for the 2004 IBC. Jeff came home from that a member of the Blues Foundation and fully charged and inspired to form his own band.
May 2004 the Jeff Jensen Band was born. From 2005-2009 the band performed 200+ shows per year. During this time the Jeff Jensen Band was in the 2005, 2006, and 2007 IBC’s, regularly performed west coast blues festivals and opened for BB King at part of his 80th Birthday tour. READ MORE
