Jacqui Walker Band
Amidst the ballads and impassioned lyrics, the instrumental breakdowns within songs she’s spent two decades refining to fit just right, Jacqui Walker’s ethos shines through like a red hot sun.
“I’m a rocker,” the Cedar Park resident says confidently, as if there was no question of her type. “I’m a blaring guitar-loving chick. I just love rock & roll.” A Long Island native raised in Philadelphia, she was a student at the University of Pittsburgh when she got tabbed to perform as the jazz queen Billie Holiday in a one-woman performance of Rob Penny’s Crawford Grill Presents Billie Holiday. On stage and behind a microphone she’s at home and at her most comfortable, whether out opening for famous figures like the Neville Brothers or Morris Day or in a juke joint nightclub back in Austin.

Jennifer Lindsey (Jennifer B) writes original music that leans toward her musical roots, Americana/country.

The band established as Jennifer B & the Groove (Kings) in 2003. While in this line-up, the band was nominated as Band of the Year through the NAMA awards; Nominated Best Female Vocalist (2003);Nominated and Won Best Female Vocalist (2004).
