Save the date! Jake Loban and the Bender Band will be playing at The Merrow in San Diego on Wednesday, Nov 5th.
Big news! This Friday will be the official debut of The Bender Band. Jake & the band have been hard at work learning both original songs and several outlaw country hits by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, and Hank Williams. Join them this Friday at Last Call to see them live for the first time.
The Bender Band is:
Mike Hertel: Lead Guitar/Vocals
Matt Weiss: Bass
Mike Contreras: Drums
Jake is happy to announce that he will be doing an acoustic set this Saturday at The Til-Two Club in San Diego. A few close friends are moving back to Indiana, and this show is chance for us to say goodbye. Safe travels Jesse, Tyrone, and Ashley!
Josh and Jake are playing at The Saloon tomorrow night, come on out and enjoy some cold beers and live music!
Jake was joined on stage last night by his longtime friend & bandmate, Mike Hertel, at The Shakedown Bar in San Diego. They've got a new band together and will be playing shows very soon. Stay tuned!
I just finished reading Bob Dylan's autobiography; Chronicles: Volume One. The book is amazing, and lately I've been really inspired by Dylan and his body of work. This is one of my favorite songs by him and I just added it to my roster of covers that I do at acoustic gigs. Enjoy!
