Jake’s Leg has been in existence in the St. Louis area for 35 years now. Although different players have come and gone in the band, its musical spirit and intent has remained. It was started as a duo by guitarist and vocalist, Randy Furrer and Tim Fahy in the mid-1970’s. Lead guitarist, Dave Casper, joined soon after. Joe Trunko (bass and vocals) joined in 1990, and Bill Noltkamper (keyboards and vocals) joined in 1991. The newest member of the band is Ryan Wilhite on drums/percussion (joined in 2005).
Over the years, Jake’s Leg has played to thousands of people, cutting across age and lifestyle demographics. To say they copy the Dead would be a mistake. They tend to interpret the material with their own identity musically and emotionally. For instance, Dave Casper’s lead solos pay homage to Jerry Garcia, but also Pat Metheny, Carlos Santana and Miles Davis. This hybrid of styles ends up working into the music.
There is a distinct joy that takes place on any given evening that transcends the typical musical experience. Somewhat irrelevant is the band’s thought process to the outcome of a Jake’s Leg performance. It seems to simply happen. People leave their troubles or concerns at the door and slide happily into “fun”.
Jake’s Leg relies on the energy of its audience, which is an integral part of the musical experience. This ongoing dialogue between the musicians and the listener is a component of the successful journey the band has realized for over 35 years. If people find this unspoken conversation between the band and its audience a bit bewildering, a quote from a Dead bumper sticker says it all.....
Born in Tel Aviv and now based in Texas (US), The Widdler is a veteran producer in the bass music community. Over the past several years, he has been delivering highly-original productions ranging over countless different sub-genres. In addition to his versatility, The Widdler's incredible concept of melody and dynamic range sets him apart from other producers and is something that is tough to find in the production world today. With an extensive collection of unreleased gems and quality releases on label's such as Dank 'N' Dirty Dubz, OWSLA, and Mal Label, this is one producer that never fails to impress. Taking inspiration from dubstep, hip hop, reggae, jazz, world music, movies, and the occasional dab, The Widdler is ultimately able to create an incredible amalgamation of deep, dark, heavy, emotional, and forward-thinking bass music. The music truly speaks for itself
