HOLLER JAKE: Chapter 1
Appalachian mountains to record with the legendary Godfather of Bluegrass,
Dr. Ralph Stanley. There, through the Muffin Man, they would connect and collaborate with Cuban bassist Ariel de la Portilla and the biggest voice in the mountains, Jake Baine. Over the next 10 years, a genre-bending world jukebox band would emerge, adding Phil Faconti on guitar, Nikki Guerra on vocals,
Evie Andrus on fiddle, James Bowman on keys, and featuring the unique musical tap dancing skills of Andrew Nemr. HOLLER JAKE's live show has rocked venues from the mountain tops of West Virginia to the riverboats of
New Orleans, including festivals such as Floyd Fest, Rhythm & Roots, and Rhythm & Blooms, just to name a few. Every show is joined by a cast of
local characters and creative surprises.
