The Jake Sanders Five





​Jake Sanders         Joel Paterson           Eric Schneider            Beau Sample         Alex Hall

Jake Sanders is a guitarist, bandleader, and arranger, whose musical career began in New York City. After years with the popular roots band, The Cangelosi Cards, Jake joined The Fat Babies. His last album with the group, Solid Gassuh (Delmark Records), made DownBeat Magazine’s "Best of 2017” list - a rare feat for a traditional jazz band in modern times.

Joel Paterson guitar, defines who the ideal session guy should be: selfless, musical, and born with impeccably good taste. He makes the jazz, country, rockabilly or swing he’s backing come alive. His life is dedicated to playing guitar and exploring the sound and history of the roots music he loves, including blues, jazz, country, western swing. He plays in Modern Sounds and other bands with Beau Sample and Alex Hall.
​Eric Schneider reeds; Schneider represents the true spirit of jazz: walking in the footsteps of the giants while expressing a vision that is entirely his own. His career and music represent a multitude of facets––constantly growing and responding to the challenge of remaining true to the great traditions of the genre while continuing to evolve as an artist.

​Beau Sample bass Chicago based upright and electric bassist performs with his own wildly popular Fat Babies and the Modern Sounds with Joel Paterson , among others. He has given an interview about slap bass playing based on his experiences after he discovered the string bass traditions of Slam Stewart.

Alex Halldrums. Both a musician and engineer, he spends his time playing with and recording a variety of local groups: The Fat Babies, The Flat Five, & Western Elstons,
When he's not behind the drums or keyboards on stage, you can find him at the helm of Reliable Recorders/Hi-Style Studio in Chicago, twiddling knobs ferociously and wielding heavy microphones with aplomb.
