Jake's Room plays old, new and punk rock, ranging from Buddy Holly to The Ramones to Blink 182, with a healthy dose of The Beatles sprinkled in. Though there are only three members, the band offers the diversity of two singers and two guitarists who can each play lead, rhythm or bass.

Biography

Jake's Room is a band out of Lake Mills, Wisconsin (near Madison). The members of the band are quite young, ranging in age from 10 to 14, but the music they play has maturity and depth that many "grown up" bands would covet. These boys can rightly cite the history of rock and roll as their influence, and the band's material covers that history in a manner not commonly attempted by youth bands. The members share a love of the music, and that love is evident when the band performs. Unlike most aspiring musicians of their respective ages, the members of Jake's Room have had the opportunity to perform live on many occasions in many different settings. These opportunities, together with the hours of rehearsal leading up to them, have given the band a seasoned comfort with live performance, and a diverse repetoire offering something for every rock and roll fan.
