Jake and the Blue Midnights are one of Toronto’s premier live acts. Formed in 1997 by Jake Chisholm, the Blue Midnights combine consummate musicianship with a youthful energy that brings their music across with intensity and honesty.

Organic and enthralling performers such as Louis Prima and Sam Butera, Joe Williams, Louis Jordan inspires the Blue Midnights. There are hints of a spectrum from Count Basie all the way to Bill Haley and the Comets.

The band’s debut recording , "Jake and the Blue Midnights" was produced by Terry Wilkins. Sizzling with the upbeat sound that has made the band a hot draw on the club and festival circuit, it features five original compositions by Jake Chisholm and producer Terry Wilkins, and one song by Wilkins and Jack De Keyzer, as well as several fresh renditions of cover songs from a hipster’s record collection.

The band features Jake Chisholm on Guitar and vocals, Chris Gale on alto and baritone saxes, Scott Neilson on Tenor, Tyler Yarama on piano, Michael Carson on bass, and Paul Brennan at the drums.
