Jesse Davis makes San Diego his home and performs regularly in Southern California and Nevada. He has performed throughout the U.S. including, Los Angeles/Hollywood, San Francisco, Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Miami, Washington DC, and Phoenix/Scottsdale, just to name a few. Internationally, he has performed throughout Australia (Sydney, Brisbane, Perth & Melbourne), New Zealand (Auckland), Mexico (Acapulco & Mexico City), Puerto Rico (San Juan) and in the Bahamas (Nassau). He has appeared on many television and radio shows in the U.S., Australia and Mexico, and filmed throughout Europe during the making of The Phenomenon of Benji.
Gifted with a powerful voice and smooth style, Jesse's large repertoire includes Jazz, R&B/Soul, Standards, Pop, Latin, Swing and Soft Rock favorites......as well as his numerous original compositions. He is backed by his Soul of Jazz band.
The Northern Soul devotees (England, Italy and other European countries, as well as Japan) are fans too. These are avid fans and vinyl collectors. His Hollywood Gypsies album is increasingly in demand, and three of Jesse's 45rpm recordings (from over 20 years ago) are heavily sought after collector items. The rarest is a song called Gonna Hang On In There Girl. One of the last times we saw one of these 45's appear on E Bay-UK, the final purchase price was just over $1500.00 (U.S. Dollars).
