I first met Debbie Jacobs back in 1984 I had booked her for a show at Rich’s in Houston, TX . It was the largest club in the city. From the get go we hit it off and she was a true professional in every sense of the word. She sort of became a the “House Mother” at the club and performed more there than any other performer we booked. She knew that we were professionals at what we were doing and we knew that we could always nothing less than perfect from her. She showed up, did her show to a full house which would have been 1500 people give or take a hundred or so. She ‘d get down in the crowd and connected with everyone there. If you attended her show you thought she was singing just for you.. And afterwards she’d stay and visit, sign autographs, dance, have a cocktail with the staff and when she was there she was at home and we had the extraordinary experience of a true performer

And most of all a true friend., She performed at Rich’s San Diego back in the late 90’s and for a Studio Disco Ball Anniversary Party back in 2002. She had not changed a bit, still just as warm and loving as the first day I met her.

I'll never forget the first time I met Debbie Jacobs, along with 5,000 other guys that loved dancing to her music! I had not yet come to know Patrick Cowley, and 1982 was at least 2 years ahead. She was headlining The Salute To The Men Of San Francisco party, performing one after another, after another, after another of her loved by the crowd hits. As I watched her stir the crowd, as she truly did, it came to me in a rush that I wanted to do that! I had no clue that in
a few years she would be one of my closest 'Disco' friends, and I would actually work with her and her friends in the studio whenever possible. She recorded one of the first songs I penned, In The Heat Of The Night, co-written with Jeff Mehl. Debbie Jacobs, one of the closest life friends I've had, and to meet her is to know why.
