Jake Speed And The Freddies


Jake Speed & the Freddies are a Cincinnati based folk/bluegrass/ragtime band. They are a four-piece band made out of flat top guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass (plus harmonica, kazoo, washboard, and watering can). CityBeat writer Ezra Waller says, "Jake Speed is a fixture of Cincinnati's traditional Folk scene." Cincinnati Post's Rick Bird says, "Jake Speed has quickly become the Queen City's favorite troubadour." Their traditional and original songs come out of Depression-era freight train rides and thundering Ohio River steamboats. Read more on Last.fm

CityBeat writer Ezra Waller says, "Jake Speed is a fixture of Cincinnati's traditional Folk scene." Cincinnati Post's Rick Bird says, "Jake Speed has quickly become the Queen City's favorite troubadour." Their traditional and original songs come out of Depression-era freight train rides and thundering Ohio River steamboats. They play over 75 shows a year at local festivals, bars, coffeehouses, museums, and amphitheatres. They have performed opening sets for national acts such as Ralph Stanley, Yonder Mountain String Band, the Waybacks and Jay Bennett (from the band, Wilco). They also play monthly gigs at Arnold's, Northside Tavern, Jack Quinn's and Kaldi's. They are known also to take part in tongue-in-cheek stories and crowd-engaging antics, such as audience parades, watering can solos, and sing-alongs. The Freddies are Jake Speed, Kentucky Graham, Justin Todhunter, and Chris Werner.

Jake sings, plays guitar, harmonica, kazoo, and washboard. Kentucky Graham plays five-string banjo. Justin Todhunter plays mandolin. Chris Werner plays upright bass. Jake Speed & the Freddies play original songs as well as reviving the music of legends like Woody Guthrie, Jimmie Rodgers, Elizabeth Cotten, and Jesse Fuller. The Freddies got started on the streets of Cincinnati where they performed their songs for tips.
