If you’d like a unique alternative to the ubiquitous assortment of classic rock bands found in our area, the funk and bluesy sound of the Rockin’ Jake Band might just prove to be the remedy you seek.

“My first professional gig was in 1980,” Jake said. “I play harmonica and sing. Back in the ’80s I started a blues band and people started calling me Rockin’ Jake. The name just stuck. The first incarnation of the Rockin’ Jake Band dates back to 1996.”
