2010 Band Line-up ! ! !

Have we got a great show planned this year. First, the details you know.
The show is April 17, 2010 from 5:00 to 11:00 p.m. at Wealthy Theatre in Grand Rapids.

BIG SURPRISE #1
Thanks to Presenting Sponsor Frames Unlimited, Jake's Music Festival 2010 will be a FREE show. That's right, no admission fee. But we will, of course, be accepting donations for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

BIG SURPRISE # 2
We have a fantastic line-up. (Okay that's probably not a surprise, since Clay Grueber does a great job every year booking the bands.)
Simien the Whale
Igby Iris
The Rhythm Dogs
Lynn Thompson Band
Those Eighty Acres
Spitting Image (Grand Rapids School of Rock)

We will be announcing additional solo artists soon. And there will be a silent auction. Is this going to fun, or what?

Thanks to all our sponsors who are helping make this year's show the best ever: Frames Unlimited, Magic Hat#9, Natural Landscape Services, WYCE, PJ's Sound and Backline, and Connie's Cakes.

Band announcement

We don't have the full line-up yet, but we are pleased to announce two great bands for this year's festival. Igby Iris returns after wowing the crowd at JMF 2009. And, after years of trying to get schedules to match, we are very pleased to welcome Simien the Whale to the show. We'll be announcing more bands very soon and some very exciting news about tickets.
