    Jake's Leg

    Rock

    Deadheads in St. Louis know Jake's Leg.  The band has been providing music for the scene for over 40 years, playing thousands of shows to generations of like-minded fans who just wanna keep on dancin'.  Maybe you've heard them in some dumpy little bar like the old Twenty North or at Busch Stadium: they've played 'em all and continue to do so on a regular basis.  And the band keeps growing.

     

    Started as a duo by guitarist and vocalist Randy Furrer in the mid-1970s, lead guitarist Dave Casper soon joined the fold.  Players were added and the music grew, friends came and went.  Some of them had 10-year-or-longer stints with Jake's Leg, which is a long career for most non-touring rock bands.  Bassist Joe Trunko came on board in 1990, followed in 1991 by keyboardist Bill Noltkamper, completing the core four that have been playing and singing together for the past 26 years. Ryan Wilhite, after a short stint as percussionist, took over the drum kit in 2005.  The sum of this is one of the longest-lasting bands in the country that plays a whole lot of your favorite songs and you'll find them playing in and around St. Louis.

     

    It's not The Grateful Dead and it's not supposed to be.  While they draw mainly on the repertoire of America's favorite psychedelic blues-rock jug band, Jake's Leg naturally bring their own sensibilities to each part.  The introspective singer-songwriter, the jazz stylings of an improvising soloist, rock-solid dance grooves, mind-bending jams:  all are in play at their shows. The music can take you anywhere you want to go.  And with their long-term unity and very capable musicianship, Jake's Leg makes it a great-sounding trip.

     

    What's happening at a show?  Music. Joy. Love. Peace. Singing. Dancing. Good Times. Fun.  While making the soundtrack with lots of dedication and practice, the band knows that the audience is an integral part of each show.  People leave their troubles at the door and get down together in a celebration of life.  The audience members come in all ages and from every background, each bringing their own energy to the experience.  The band and their audience have an on-going dialogue based in their mutual love of the music.  It wasn't planned, it just happened.  And it's still happening after 40 years.  If you're a fan of the songs of The Grateful Dead, do yourself a favor and see Jake's Leg.  Your friends are there and the music never stops.
