Rockin' Jake kicked off the post-North Atlantic Blues Festival portion of the 2011 Monday Night Blues schedule at the Time Out Pub in fine fashion with a mix of rockin', funky blues (and he brought the hot sauce for a little added spice...). Jake is another artist, who has regularly performed at the pub, that we had not had the pleasure of catching previously. Jake is currently based in St. Louis after spending more than a decade in New Orleans (he was one of many flooded out by Katrina). You can read more about Jake (and the Who's Who of artists he's worked with) at http://www.rockinjake.com/rjb_003.htm .
