Rockin' Jake has been hailed by many as one of the premier harmonica players in the country. His original sound is a hybrid of second line, swamp funk, blues and zydeco with influences from Paul Butterfield, Big Walter Horton, James Cotton, The Meters, WAR, J. Geils Band, Clifton Chenier, and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Based out of New Orleans since 1990, Rockin' Jake relocated since being flooded out by Hurricane Katrina, and now lives in Southern Florida. Jake has toured nationally with G. Love & Special Sauce, blues and pop legend Maria Muldaur, and bluesman T.J, Wheeler.
Jake's work has also been heard on the soundtrack of "The Big Easy" television series, the theme for the "Mike Ditka Show, " and a Miller Beer commercial. Jake is a five-time winner of Off Beat Magazine's coveted Best of the Beat award for best harmonica player. He and his band pour out their souls in every performance with high energy and electricity which consistently brings the audience to their feet.
