Jake Ilika will be performing live at Island City Brewing Company's taproom, on Friday, April 7th, at 8pm. No cover!
Jake Ilika is a former Winonan and currently Minneapolis-based musician. He relocated to the big city in 2013 to pursue music full-time, and has been doing that ever since. He regularly performs solo, with The Heavy Set, Ilika Ward Duo, and Land At Last (his most recent project with Winona's Mike Munson). His solo shows are filled with folk and blues, fingerstyle guitar, and great stories, his duos both mellow and rowdy in their own right, and his band, The Heavy Set, a full-on rock, blues, and alt-country experience. With four albums out (and one live solo album) since he made the move to full-time musician, he shows no signs of slowing down, with The Heavy Set's third album coming out later this year.
