Summer Concert Series Sponsored by Hilltop National Bank
Jake landed a gig at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Broadway in downtown Nashville just after college and has been playing there ever since.
Jake enjoys a mix of traditional and outlaw country while finding ways to insert original material. In describing the process of recording an album, Jake says, “I wrote at least 100 sub par songs to get 13 good ones. We are not getting worse .” He likes to write songs that are his life and his current CD includes several of those.
Jake is not only a talented song-writer, but is also a gifted singer, plays acoustic guitar and his best quality just might be his natural ability to entertain. He loves to talk to the crowd and make them laugh by saying just about anything that might pop into his mind; the more ridiculous, the better. People walk into Tootsie’s for a beer and before they know it they have spent four hours with the Jake Maurer Project.
Look for Jake’s newest album, “Lower Broad,” and his self-titled album, “Jake Maurer” on i-Tunes, on Facebook, at jakemaurer.com or at any live Jake Maurer show. He’ll be at Tootsie’s and anywhere else the wind blows him.
Opening Act: Whiskey’s Alibi
Whiskey’s Alibi is an impressive blend of country/rock with a little pop culture naughty and unexpectedness that you would be crazy to miss! Whiskey’s Alibi has not only given the heartbeat back to Midwestern Country Music, where the sound is strong, rough, proud, and everlasting, just like its the people, but they have set themselves apart from the most Midwestern groups because their fans, of all generations from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Wewak, New Guinea, fell in love with their ability and willingness to surpass the mainstream need to represent just one sound.
