Finally made it to see my buddy, Jake Keeble and his band Hedonistas open up at Smith’s Olde Bar this past Saturday.  Getting there early was worth it to catch this short but energetic set.  Jake is the frontman singer, doubling on guitar and keys, and has a great voice to boot.

Each member took a turn on solos and I especially enjoyed the high pulse axe work by Pete and Max and the interplay with Jake.  My favorite tune was a funky boogie with Jake on keys, which I believe was either Spanish Lava Lamp or Lucky Buddha (Jake, help me here.  Overall this is a band on the rise that I will keeping my eyes on as they rise up.  As Jake signed the set list (his first autograph), I hope it will be a big memorabilia catch for me!

Members: Max Blount – guitar Peter Brazeal – guitar Sawyer Drummond – drums Jake Keeble – vocals, acoustic guitar, keys Hunter Tredway – bass
