Jake’s Music Festival: 13th year is a game-changer for popular music event
In a break from the past, Jake’s Music Festival shakes things up for its 13th festival by moving to The Orbit Room. The shift is enabling more opportunities for this annual event to continue to evolve in its mission to provide the best of the area’s music talent, who perform to raise funds for our local chapter of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
The lineup is a mixture of styles of music from some of our area’s veterans performers but also newer acts. Joining Jake’s Music Festival this year are The PotatoeBabies, The Autumnatic, The Jet Beats, Papa Vegas, and Lipstick Jodi.
The event will have a bar right in the room as the bands are performing, so you won’t miss a beat of the music as you grab a refreshment.
Also, besides a host of silent auction items will be the chance to meet and watch artist (and comic) Sarah Jean Anderson create an original work of art live.
If you are hungry, there is even food this year with Grand Rapids Pizza & Delivery on site and a pretty good chance that Connie's Cakes will be providing free samples of their delicious locally made treats.
As with almost every year, you can expect plenty of other surprises throughout the night but you can only experience them by showing up on Saturday night. One hundred percent of the face price of your ticket is a donation to Juvenile Diabetes Research -- so purchase a handful!
