Jake Clemons will be performing in the Set Theatre in Kilkenny on Wednesday December 4.

The nephew of the late great Clarence Clemons, band member with the E Street Band, Jake has since performed with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street members.

He took over as the saxophonist for the band after Clarence Clemons died and played in the Wrecking Ball tour with the band playing tenor and baritone saxophones, various percussion instruments, and also singing backup vocals.

There’s the hair, then there are the glasses, but ultimately there is a person who is a magnet for positive energy, emotion, and creating stories. While he feels a deep connection to his past – Jake Clemons continues to make a deep connection in the present by living life to its fullest through a musical journey.

Jake has been described as “taking the mysterious, rugged side of Johnny Cash and mix it with the soulful down to earth love child of Bruce Springsteen and Clarence Clemons – shaken not stirred of course – you end up with the unique and talented Jake Clemons.

He plays the guitar, sax, piano, and drums, he writes music, he sings, he loves rock ‘n roll!”

For those who are still wondering who Jake Clemons is then consider that he has shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, The Swell Season, The Roots, and Eddie Vedder to name a few.

This is the roster of a man who is leaving a legacy of storytelling.

Jake lives on a perpetual world tour, constantly releasing new music and engaging his growing fan base.

Tickets are priced at only €15 and are available now from the Set theatre.
