Welcome to the JD & the Wake Website!

JD & The Wake is a Funky Rock/Blues band playing songs by artists like Joe Bonamassa, Tommy Castro, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Steely Dan, Derek Trucks, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gary More, Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz, Robben Ford, Los Lobos and other great artists.

The band members are seasoned pros who love playing material that is rewarding to play and inspiring to hear.

The don’t play the same tired covers that bands tend to play over and over…Instead, our goal is to play mostly songs that are familiar but refreshingly different with a few staples that every band needs to know.

The band is headquartered in North County San Diego and plays frequently at some  of San Diego and Orange County’s best venues and events.
