Thunderís Tavern Welcomes Waitiní on Jake

Thunder’s Tavern Welcomes Waitin’ on Jake
Jessica DePineuil

On Friday, August 7th, 2007, I made last-minute plans to catch Waitin’ On Jake at their first Thunder’s Tavern show. Days prior, I’d looked up the band’s Myspace page after Marc mentioned them coming to Pascagoula to play that weekend, and from the sound of the band’s music on their stand-alone player to the high energy easily displayed in their photos, I was eager to check them out.

I arrived at Thunder’s Tavern as Waitin’ on Jake were finishing their sound check. The first thing I noticed was the professionalism the band and crew demonstrated as they adjusted their sound with incredible diligence. What I didn’t expect from them was the volume intensity the sound check foretold. I was slightly hesitant about how loud they were, but being in a cheerful mood, I was forgiving and still anxious to see them start the show.

For a Friday night, the Tavern’s crowd was small, but the band assumed position on the stage with smiling faces, as if they were playing for hundreds. They introduced themselves and jumped right into their first set. I was taken aback at how clear and precise their covers were in both instrumentals and vocals. The guys of Waitin’ on Jake collectively bring forth a standout style of performance, and still every song they played was perfectly mastered. From modern rock chart-toppers such as Disturbed’s “Down with the Sickness” to Cameo’s “Word Up” hit from 1986, Waitin’ on Jake catered to every musical taste and gave us all songs to sing along to.

Front man Justin’s vocal power really made each song come alive, and with Ra’s strong drum performance, Dave’s vigorous guitar riffs, and Aubrey’s energetic bass lines, the band gave the crowd that night a reason to party. My previous apprehensiveness about the band’s volume had been drastically proven false. Waitin’ on Jake is one of the strongest, most energetic bands I’ve seen, and their intensity was very well complemented by powerful sound.

All in all, Waitin’ on Jake brought Thunder’s Tavern an exciting, electrifying experience. Thanks, guys, for putting on a true show for us, and please…

Play it LOUD!
