The Jake Kershaw Band will return to Battle Creek in 2018, bringing the party on the 4th of July. This band has been taking the Michigan Blues community by storm.
Jake Kershaw is a performer with heart. He has the raw talent, the feel, the soul and the drive of some of the most popular blues musicians in history...from Stevie Ray Vaughn to BB King. Jake spent his entire lifetime playing the guitar and fell in love with blues music in 2014 after hearing Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Since then, Jake and his three-piece band have become an unstoppable force that everyone flocks to see! And did we mention that Jake is only a TEENAGER? That's right, he is in high school in Marshall, Michigan. He truly "blows the roof off the joint" and many have said he will be a blues monster by the time he is 20.
Terry Oosterhart is the bassist for the band. He is a veteran of the Michigan music scene and is an excellent singer in his own right.
Ryan McFadden is the drummer and he has been playing drums for twelve years. His influence is Rush's Neal Pert and Duncan Phillips of The Newsboys. Do not miss this rare young powerhouse musician and his talented band at this year's Field of Flight as part of our Field of Rock Concert Series on July 4th.
