“Just Friends” plays a wide range of jazz and popular music from the Great American Songbook in addition to imaginative interpretations of contemporary songs from standards to the Beatles and beyond. The group’s four members have played around the Baltimore area for decades and its cumulative musical experience totals over two hundred years. Dr. Lake holds a degree in composition from Peabody Conservatory of Music and has recently completed writing his first opera – Lola. Weaving together a unique blend of musical styles is the hall mark of this creative, innovative instrumental collaboration. The group recently celebrated its first anniversary playing together.
