Cloggeroo is bringing Bruce’s saxophone player Jake Clemons, direct from Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s World Tour, to Cloggeroo this summer. 

Clemons is a gifted singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist—a true magnet for positive energy and emotion. The Jake Clemons Band of top Canadian musicians will be on the Cloggeroo stage August 10 at Georgetown’s West Street Park in Three Rivers. 

Jake Clemons has become a familiar figure around the world, spending the last 12 years as the tenor and baritone saxophonist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, including appearing on Springsteen’s album Letter To You and the companion Apple TV documentary. He has also recorded and/or performed with The Killers, Eddie Vedder, Glen Hansard, and more. 

The Cloggeroo Music Festival brings a full weekend of music August 9–11. Joining Clemons in the lineup are The Sadies, Dave Sampson, Dee Dee Austin, Jah’Mila, The Hypochondriacs, Old Man Luedecke, Steve Somers, the Converts, and the funky jazz of Christine Tassan et les Imposteures. 

The Sunday blues show in the Boggeroo Blues Tent at Bogside Brewing is headlined by Monkey Junk, Theresa Malenfant, and Amanda Jackson featuring Route 225. 

Tickets will be on sale in early May. Check cloggeroo.com and watch for social media posts for updates.
