A crowd pleaser on the festival circuit and touring constantly around the US and Europe, Richard’s jaw dropping technique, versatility and light hearted presentation make for a musically well rounded show of barn burners, rags, comedy songs, Beatles tunes, fiddle tunes, originals, Bach to blues to fingerpicking to Sousa marches!
Having played all over Europe and the USA with the likes of Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Tommy Emmanuel, Bireli Lagrene, Sylvain Luc, Brent Mason, Mark O’Connor, Sam Bush, Stuart Duncan, Suzy Boggus, Bobby Bare and so many top flight country, bluegrass and jazz artists and virtuoso musicians, don’t miss the opportunity to see and hear this world class picker live right here in Portland.
Everything's Jake is a "Swing Nouveau" Swing Band. They play originals and hits from the Hot Jazz Age of the 1920's and 30's. Think Speakeasy's, bathtub gin, and dancing until dawn... Everything's Jake has been gracing club and concert audiences with its original brand of swing music for decades. During that time, EVERYTHING'S JAKE has been famous for its tight, polished and swinging sound, earning rave reviews wherever they play!
