"I use the power of music to shift people's experience of reality and inspire their imagination."
Jonathan E. Jacobs is a multi-dimensional entertainer, DJ and writer whose work is inspired by the way music can shift people’s experience of reality and unlock their imagination. Collecting and curating some of the most inspirational music of the 20th Century, all on original vinyl, his alter-ego, The Vintage DJ, initiates audiences into the transformative power of music from other times and places, creating an immersive experience that sometimes feels like time travel.
Jonathan’s alter-ego, The Vintage DJ, is part super-hero, part DJ. After all, DJs need to be super heroes in order to 'save lives.' Armed with twin tube-powered classroom record players and only original vinyl, The Vintage DJ spins a mouth-watering selection of mid-twentieth century Jazz, Latin, Soul, R&B, Rock ’n’ Roll, Reggae and much more. The Vintage DJ harnesses music to create one-of-a-kind magical experiences for weddings, secret soirées, dance parties, launches and live events.
Whether he's conjuring his next children's book or penning an out-of-the-box adventure for the stage, Jonathan is always telling stories. Music is often the inspiration for his artistic process, whether writing alone, collaborating with others or interviewing fellow artists about their writing practice.
