Jake Hill & The Fretters family show

Jake Hill is a singer/songwriter from Plymouth, Massachusetts, from across the country, and from down the street. He has miles on his voice, blisters on his fingers, and stories to tell. Though born and raised in America’s Hometown, it was the American Southwest where he found himself. Then he came home.

Jake has released four full-length LP’s and a handful of EP’s, and has performed from Boston to Austin in front of audiences as intimate as a couple of bottle-throwing drunks and as rowdy as thousands of fancy people doing fancy things.

Chad Perrone

Frequenting renowned clubs in New England and New York, whether with a full band, as part of a duo (with his best friend Dennis Carroll on piano), or through an intimate solo performances, Perrone continues to bring his recorded music to life. “I know my songs end up being serious, but I’m really quite the goofball. I just try to keep the shows themselves light. We’ll be serious when the time calls for it, and hopefully laugh a lot during the rest of the time.”
