Tom & Jerry’s: Jake to the Nineties Post-Mortem

Great Scott! Jake has returned safely to the year 2016! Thank you to those of you who traveled back in time with us to the late 1990s as we all had an opportunity re-live an historic Jake lineup and set list.

Did Jake create an alternative timeline?

Did Jake accidentally create an alternative timeline? Was anyone actually ready for Marty McFly’s guitar solo at the Enchantment Under The Sea dance? Can we possibly milk this movie reference any further?

To say the show was both fun and successful would be a profound understatement. Jake owes each and every one of you a huge thanks for making it out to Tom & Jerry’s, and is relieved to hear that all traversed home safely during the insane weather that finished off the evening. Attendance was at an all-time high, and spirits followed suit. Jake is not the few of us on stage, but the collection of all of us together. Thank you, everyone.

Take a peek at some photos and stop by the Bootlegs page to listen along.

And now, we send Jake to the Future!

Kindness Over Muscular Dystrophy Fund Raiser #KOMD

This past Saturday, Jake and the Mountain Men proudly donated their time to a worthy cause: The Kindness Over Muscular Dystrophy project is dedicated to finding a cure to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This was their first annual fundraiser, and it was a huge success!

KOMD PosterCaptain Lawrence Brewing Co. hosted the event in their spacious campus in Elmsford, NY. The event featured live music from yours truly and The KOMD Band, a live DJ, dinner, cornhole tournament, silent auction, raffle, and the release of a limited edition KOMD beer.

Some noteworthy food favorites of ours included Chez Lenard (specifically Le Hot Dog Garniture Suisse), Northern Smoke, Willy Nicks, and Croton Creek Steakhouse & Wine Bar (fried Philly Cheesesteaks? Don’t mind if I do!).

Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy & KOMD raised 30k in ticket sales. Tickets were $100 each and sold out a month prior to the event! If you missed the opportunity to participate there are numerous ways you can help contribute to the cause.

Members of Jake and the Mountain Men were honored to join The KOMD Band in performing Tom Petty’s hit, “I Won’t Back Down,” in honor of the cause. Jake looks forward to returning to the Captain Lawrence campus some time in the near future. Stay tuned!

Lucy’s Lounge 4/29/2016

“Didn’t you guys just play Lucy’s?”
“Yeah. But they asked us to come back, so here we are!”

It’s only been 5 weeks since the last Lucy’s show, but we returned with a vengeance. It was a rainy night, so turnout was a bit low- but that didn’t discourage us one bit.
