Gainsville’s Less Than Jake will be playing the House of Blues February 3, on a bill with Reel Big Fish and Authority Zero.
Less Than Jake — currently comprised of lyricist/drummer Vinnie Fiorello, vocalist/guitarist Chris DeMakes, vocalist/bassist Roger Manganelli, saxophonist Peter “JR” Wasilewski, and trombonist Buddy Schaub — released their debut 20 years ago. In that time, they have built quite a following with their ska punk sound, and their interactions with their fans.
Along with past hits, like “History of a Boring Town” and “The Science of Selling Yourself Short,” the band is also still putting out new music. They just released their newest single, “American Idle,” from the album See the Light. Fiorello says it’s one of his favorite songs off the album.
