Michigan Jake

Michigan Jake was a barbershop quartet that formed in 1995. The quartet borrowed the name from Michigan J. Frog, the singing frog in the 1955 Merrie Melodies short One Froggy Evening.
The original line-up comprised the section leaders of the Louisville Times chorus of Louisville, Kentucky. After a few changes in the line-up, Michigan Jake won the 2001 International Quartet Contest in Nashville. They announced their retirement on July 1, 2004.
They will long be remembered for their innovative style, distinctive and natural approach to singing and their amazing understanding of swing rhythms.
Additional highlights of their career:
5 April 2001 - Michigan Jake is the winner of two Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards! Beginning to See the Light won best barbershop song of 2000, while For the Record was runner-up for best barbershop album of 2000.
4 October 2001 - Michigan Jake is the winner of a Harmony Award from the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, presented in Sharon, PA. Other 2001 recipients include the Lettermen, the Lennon Sisters, the Chordettes, the Four Freshmen, the Eagles and the Pied Pipers. Michigan Jake is the first barbershop quartet to receive this award.
