Jake Hunsinger: Wrapped Around The Axle
Have you ever walked into a local bar and wondered to yourself, “Am I still in Providence?” That first happened when I stepped into Nick-a-Nees, and happened again when I saw Jake Hunsinger play a solo show at Union Station Brewery. I was transported to a town somewhere in Texas with Garth Brooks songs playing and people two-stepping all around me. I told Jake that his band, Jake Hunsinger and the Rock Bottom Band, reminds me of all things country. During our conversation he shared how a Pennsylvania-born, Providence-residing, singer-songwriter performs stories of everyday life with a twang.

Roots Report: Summer Shows (and standing at shows)
Okee dokee folks… I was just online and a friend of mine posted photos from a concert he is at. He commented that people had been on their feet the whole show. This was a positive thing to him. Me, not so much. At my age I don’t enjoy standing for concerts. I know that makes me sound old and pathetic, but in a way I am. I am falling apart and standing for that long would be murder on my back and knees. When I was younger I used to stand at concerts, hell, we used to stand on the chairs! When you’re young, you’re invincible, and have a well of energy. Mine is dry! If I know there are not going to be seats at a show, I am more than likely NOT going.
