Jake La Botz returns to Europe for tour in June31-01-2019
Singer/songwriter Jake La Botz plays roots-drenched music that reflects his time performing in streets, clubs, churches, and even tattoo parlors. You can also hear the various places La Botz has lived in his music — including his time in New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta, and his native Chicago where, as a young man, he found kinship with some of the last of the pre-war bluesmen: David “Honeyboy” Edwards, “Homesick” James, and “Maxwell Street” Jimmy Davis.
In 2017 Jake released his studio album Sunnyside on Hi-Style Records to critical acclaim. Produced by Jimmy Sutton, the album won two Independent Music Awards. Jake has toured extensively in the US and Europe and has shared the stage with Ray Charles, Etta James, Dr. John, Mavis Staples, JD McPherson, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, Tony Joe White, Low Cut Connie and a host of other greats.
Nuremberg's Smokestack Lightnin' is probably the finest Germany has to offer when it comes to American Roots music. For more than 20 years now these guys have entertained audiences around the globe in their own unique and authentic way. A perfect fit to back La Botz on his upcoming European tour.
