Jake’s Music Festival Celebrates 15th Year

15 years of great music for a great cause. Jake’s Music Festival takes to the stage on Saturday, April 13, 2019 for the 15th annual benefit event. This year’s festival returns to Elevation at The Intersection. Start times and bands will be announced soon.

“It’s amazing that this is our 15th year,” said festival organizer Tom Scheidel. “We started this back in 2005 and it’s gratifying to see the growth. We annually bring in some of the top bands in the Grand Rapids area for a night of fantastic music.”

Event sponsors Perrin Brewing Company, The Gordon Group, and United Bank cover the production costs of the festival. This means that all proceeds from the festival are donated to the local chapter of JDRF, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. 

“This is going to be a great year,” said festival music director Clay Grueber. “We have some excellent bands lined up and some special surprises to celebrate this milestone year.”
