Music Director Jeremy Jacobsen
The Chicago musician Jeremy Jacobsen, better known as the Lonesome Organist, is a true
one-man band. His simultaneous proficiency with a wide variety of instruments -- including the organ, drums, guitar, harmonica, toy piano, tap-shoes, and steel drum -- makes his music suitable for a variety hour or a circus show as well as a rock album. Never lacking in novelty, the Lonesome Organist mixed styles such as rock, yodeling, blues, circus music, and soundtrack music on his records. He collaborated with bands such as the Blues Explosion, 5ive Style, and Euphone.
