I have booked Jason into our summer music festival for several years. He is an audience favorite who never fails to deliver a great show. Jason has a great voice and he covers pop tunes, jazz, show tunes, R&B, and standards. His stage presence is warm and often very funny too. He has the talent and expertise to make any show, wedding, party or other event memorable. I hope to work with Jason for many years to come.

As far as Jason Brock’s personal life, he was born in East Texas, and then moved all over the country with his family – no they weren’t a military family – he’s still trying to figure out why they moved so much during his childhood. Anyway, Jason has lived in many places, but finally settled in San Francisco, California. It’s a great place for him to live because it’s diverse, beautiful, has an interesting political scene, and San Francisco was featured in several of the books (Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin, Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, The Color Purple [writer Alice Walker lives near the city]), that inspired Jason to live as his true self. He now resides at home with his partner and dog (not the same person) with a beautiful view of the Bay.
