Jake is a National and International award winning Elvis Tribute Artist that has performed all over Michigan, across the country, and as well as Canada. Jake performs all eras of Elvis’s music, the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s. He has performed for audiences of all sizes, sold out shows, and for many wonderful causes. Elvis tribute competitions were another layer of expansion in Jake’s career; the first being, the Saginaw Kingfest, where he won the Early Years contest in 2009. In 2011 he competed and won the title of King of Saginaw! Jake has the distinction of being the only King of Saginaw who has won both the Early Years and Concert Years portions of the competition as well as winning the overall title. In 2011, Jake competed in Branson, MO and Tupelo, MS in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist preliminary rounds. He then also competed in the preliminary round at the Windsor Elvis Festival in June 2011. It was there that he qualified and went on to represent Windsor, Ontario, later that year while competing in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition in Memphis, TN. Jake was one of only 26 qualifying tribute artists from around the world at the 2011 competition in Memphis. In April 2013, Jake was awarded 2nd place in the Branson Elvis Festival for the second time. He has performed four SOLD OUT shows at the Bay City State Theatre, with two of those sellouts in the same year, 2013. No other performer has accomplished this at the State Theatre.
