Rich Jacques hasn't stopped performing since the day his second grade teacher in Maryland allowed him to get up in front of his classmates and sing songs at the end of school days. From then on, at venues big and small throughout the U.S. and even in China — this former U.S. Marine and Texas Tech University graduate has always managed to find ways to share his love of music with anyone that will listen.
Since 2018, Rich has held the same weekend gig in Granbury, Texas, at Christina's — one of the most popular restaurant's on the historic downtown square there. Otherwise known as the "The Voice of Christina's," Rich has built a following of regulars that enjoy coming out to watch him play the guitar and sing the hits.
Rich has recently began performing regularly with his six-string in the Nashville area at the beautiful Bella Notte at City Cafe in Brentwood.
Along with writing and producing many of his own songs, Rich has earned leading stage roles in New York shows such as 'Grease' (Danny Zuko), 'The 1940's Radio Hour' (Johnny Cantone), and other stage productions. He has held longstanding gigs at numerous restaurants and bars in New York, New Mexico, and at resort locations on Hainan Island in the South China Sea. China. He was part of the world-famous singing wait staff at Ellen's Stardust Diner on Broadway for two years.
Ask Rich and he'll be the first to tell you he is first and foremost a saloon singer with a love for swinging with a big band. Influenced by greats such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Gordon Lightfoot, Charlie Pride, Willie Nelson, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Dick Van Dyke, and Judy Garland, he's 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.
