Al Jacquez

I'm writing the business plan to a movie titled A DAUGHTER'S HOPE. It's the theatrical version to the effort a couple years ago we called TIGER'S HOPE. In the fall of 2009 we were a month from principal photography when our funding was pulled and we shut down. Now we're getting ready to try again. In the process I was editing into the BP bios for some of the key personnel. One is AL JACQUEZ who hopefully will play the husband of our protagonist. In the movie, as in real life, JAKE is sort of a rock star that never got the recognition he still deserves.

Al was the lead vocal for SAVAGE GRACE that years ago opened for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Three Dog Night, The Who, Rod Stewart, Jethro Tull, Credence Clearwater Revival, John Sebastian, The Allmann Brothers, Grand Funk and others. 

His current band is MEASURED CHAOS (Blues, Soul, and Rock 'n Roll). We've caught several of their shows locally and really like the music and Al out front. Last year, out in L.A., they shot a music video for one of my favorite tunes titled LIVIN' THE DREAM. Here's the embedded Youtube link. If it hangs up playing, double click on the picture and you'll get better "reception" directly on YouTube. 

Check out SAVAGE GRACE's album "ONE NIGHT IN AMERICA" on iTunes. Al sings lead on most of the cuts.  The "COMIN' HOME" cut is a song about love for a woman and love of/for Jesus. That's Al belting it out. 
Al attends Northridge church in Plymouth, MI and often gets to sing during their extravaganzas. This next video is from their Christmas program a few years back. It's JOY TO THE WORLD.
