Big Wake is an original 4-piece band from Jersey City, NJ. With influences ranging from Southern and Prog Rock to Americana and Blues, Big Wake combines the types of melodies and lyrics you might hear from a singer-songwriter like Ben Folds or Conor Oberst, with organic and virtuosic improvisations that harness the power and ferocity of a straight up rock and roll jamband like the Allman Brothers and moe. Gerry Rosenthal (guitar/vocals) and Eitan Levine (keys) craft muscular leads with an intertwining duel-line guitar/keys attack, whil Jeff Fernandes (drums/vocals) and Marty O'Kane (bass/vocals) provide soaring 3-part harmonies while keeping the rhythm thundering underneath it all. They have released two full length albums, striking a balance between well-crafted, radio-ready songs and explosive improvisational musicianship full of catchy hooks, wide ranging dynamics, and tightly crafted instrumental breaks. Over the years they have shared the stage with artists as diverse as Better Than Ezra and Rusted Root. .
