The Jake Levinson Band has their own unique yet familiar sound- chock-full of the blues while blending soul, country, a little funk, and some latin and eastern spice all in the mix. The four piece band consists of guitar/vox, sax, drums, and bass. The Jake Levinson Band was started years ago in a little town in Guatemala by the name of San Pedro la Laguna. Now they are currently based in Austin, Texas.
