Wherever Rich Jacques is in the world, you can be sure he has a song to sing.
Born in Virginia and raised in Maryland, this proud former U.S. Marine and graduate of Texas Tech University has always kept music at the core of his existence.
His second grade teacher honored his request and let Rich sing to his classmates at the end of each school day – and he hasn't stopped performing since.
At venues big and small across the U.S. and even in China, Rich has always found a way to share his joy of music with anyone that will listen.
From leading roles in New York shows such as 'Grease' (Danny Zuko), 'The 1940's Radio Hour' (Johnny Cantone), many other stage productions, and longstanding gigs at numerous restaurants and bars throughout America, including a two-year run as a singing waiter on Broadway, this versitile performer with a wide range of stage experience has been pleasing audiences for many years.
Ask Rich and he'll be the first to tell you he is first and foremost a saloon singer. Influenced by greats such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Sammy Davis Jr., the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Don McLean, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, Charlie Pride, Temptations, Jackie Wilson, Willie Nelson, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Dick Van Dyke, and Judy Garland, Rich is always honing his craft to bring his audience the best he has to offer at every show. When his audience is pleased, he is pleased.
Rich continues to expand his musical horizons.
