Jay Rakes Band
Jay Rakes, leader of The Jay Rakes Band is considered to be a leader and innovator of driving guitar focused music on the Eastern Seaboard. His influences are many, and include Rock Legends Steve Morse, Joe Satriani, Frank Marino, and Gary Moore.
The Jay Rakes Band is Jay's second rockin' band and has further enabled him to continue his expansion towards his musical vision.
Musicians featured on the 'Perfect Tension' CD are Alan Felder on drums and George Gaydos on bass.
Jay is currently backed by a powerhouse rhythm section that includes Bill Landon on bass and Cody Thorton on Drums.
On JRB's debut CD, 'Perfect Tension' , you will hear every member shine through on each track. Once you hear the music clips it will be easy to see why the Jay Rakes Band is a must see - whether they open for a National Act like Pat Travers Band, Yngwie Malmsteen & King's X, or if you are lucky enough to get in the door when they play as the headliner.
Either way JRB will knock you on your ass with the wall of sound and the intricate musicianship, writing, that will surely amaze every ear.
