Jake and the Soul Professors & David Burchfield - 7pm | $10


Jake and the Soul Professors are a brand new 5 piece soul-pop outfit with R&B and Funk influences. Featuring crooning vocals, tasty licks, and some thick rhythms, these gentlemen cover the range from heartfelt to can't-stop-dancing. Assembled from a truly diverse background of musical experience, from jazz to metal to country, they have found their common voice and are ready to give you a taste (though you will undoubtedly leave hungry for more).

David Burchfield writes American folk music that’s not content to stay within traditional genre boundaries. Taking cues from Josh Ritter and Joe Pug, Burchfield’s literate lyrics meet emotive grace in nods to Gillian Welch, Mandolin Orange, and David Ramirez. There is a powerful candor in Burchfield’s writing – raw, emotive, and rich with details that bring the listener right into the scene of his passion. Solo, Burchfield performs with a surprising ferocity and emotional delivery that has silenced even the rowdiest of rooms. Critics have called his 5-piece band, David Burchfield & the Fire Guild, akin to “the Band meets the Stray Birds” – equal parts all out rock n roll party and sensitively arranged balladry. Burchfield has played the Middle of the Map Fest, Boulevardia, was featured in the Chevy Music Showcase, and has shared bills with Noah Gundersen, David Ramirez, and Joe Pug.
