Vintage Jazz Music

Jake Sanders

Jake Sanders

A self-taught guitar and banjo player Jake truly delved into into vintage music while working for renowned bandleader Vince Giordano in New York City. While living there he formed The Cangelosi Cards, planting a seed for the current, thriving, young, traditional jazz scene you find in New York today. He's played with many notable projects including The Fat Babies, a renowned hot jazz band playing in Chicago and beyond. He currently performs with Naomi & Her Handsome Devils and has collaborated with Naomi on numerous original arrangements for the band.

Jake Sanders will be bringing the vintage jazz jams all weekend with a quintet, a septet, and a trio for the late night dance.
