What pairs with great beer? Of course, Shelby & Jake are a husband and wife duo formed back in 2008. The two began playing music together in their living room and have since developed their unique acoustic style and full sound. Jake is a multi-instrumentalist playing guitar, drums, and singing in their band while Shelby sings lead vocals and plays rhythm guitar. They perform a wide variety of music from classic rock to country to current hits.
