Jonathan’s work is often channeled through his alter-ego, The Vintage DJ, presenting the authentic sounds of yesteryear as they were meant to be heard. Spinning only original 45s, 33s and 78s from the 1920s through the 1970s on two tube-powered vintage record players, The Vintage DJ arrives and we lose the limiting idea that we are somehow stuck only in the here and now. His palette includes Jazz, Latin, Soul, R&B, Rock ’n’ Roll, British Invasion, Reggae and more.
Along with the music, artfully choreographed performance, dance, and spectacle add to the sensation of timelessness. Here, audience participants are taken on a journey into another dimension – one where anything is possible; where music is the key to unlocking the imagination. The experience is empowering, fun, and sometimes a little bit trippy. For Jacobs, listening to original vinyl on vintage record players is the closest one can get to actual time travel, a subject that has fascinated him since childhood.
