Join Jake and the band for an intimate and enjoyable evening of holiday tunes and some selections from his new CD “Holding Back the Dawn”.
Jake Bergevin joins the ranks of many successful hyphenates as a singer-trumpet player. Like Diana Krall, Harry Connick, Jr. or he has continued to refine his craft in both arenas.
His first CD, “My Name is Jake”, available at CDBaby.com, is a combination of sensitive jazz vocals and romping party/dance music. Conceived as a tribute to his heroes Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles, Jake puts his own stamp on some classic tunes and demonstrates his crooning, blues shouting, scat-singing and trumpet solo skills in fine fashion.
Jake has played performances at many of Seattle’s most prestigious venues and events, including the Showbox Theatre, The Triple Door, Paramount Theatre, Bumbershoot, Folklife Festival, ten years running at the Ellensburg Jazz in the Valley Festival.
On his first visit to Bake’s Place, he plans to perform new material from his forthcoming CD “Holding Back the Dawn”; a mix of mostly bossas and ballads. Music will include new treatments of jazz standards such as “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face”, “No Moon At All”, “How Insensative” as well as music of Sting, Pat Metheny and some original compositions and new lyrics.
