Jacobs, Moss

VP of Talent, Nederlander Concerts

Nederlander Concerts VP of Talent, Moss Jacobs is a concert industry veteran, known for mastering and promoting the unique attributes of mid-sized to large-sized venues to create memorable and high-yielding concerts with a wide variety of artists. Moss has produced the annual Bob Marley Day Festival in Los Angeles and San Diego for 25 years. The 3-day festival, which is held over President’s Day Weekend (Saturday/Sunday in LA and Monday in SD) draws more than 36,000 people annually and is the single largest reggae gathering in the US. Among national promoters, artist managers and agents, Moss is regarded as the most experienced and knowledgeable reggae promoter in the US. Reggae, however, is just a small portion of what Moss produces in a given year. In addition to over two decades of experience promoting concerts in Southern California, Moss has developed exceptional concert seasons in other secondary markets, most notably the Santa Barbara Bowl, where he has made the venue a must-play for major artists such as Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Santana, Pearl Jam, Gwen Stefani, Norah Jones, The Eagles and Aretha Franklin.
