We at Jake consider Pete, our live sound engineer, to be a full-fledged band member. If you were at the show this past weekend you probably learned that Pete was on vacation- and well, we really missed him!
The show was off to a somewhat rocky start as no able-bodied individuals could figure out how to get sound coming out of Pete’s board. After pressing every combination of buttons we could think of (including frantically texting and calling Pete) we eventually figured out a hack that worked pretty well. Massive props go to Mike Griffiths for running sound for us in Pete’s absence. He was dealt a pretty
shitty bad hand and handled it well- with a few beers and a big smile.

After a “fashionably late” start, we got right into the business of hard rocking. Acoustic guitars can’t hold Jake back from melting faces [photo gallery]! The venue was packed with our regular fans and quite a few locals who, admittedly, may have only stuck around to see if we’d ever be able to get the sound system working… Nonetheless, we made some brand new fans, rocked hard, and played loudly- the only way we know how.
