Drake was born at Temple University during jazz lectures in PHILLY, PA!

Its first signs of life came when a jazz history professor wrote "TRADITION" and "INNOVATION" on the board.

Three years later it began with an incredible group of musicians, who were mostly schooled in jazz, but interested in embarking on new and different music.

DRAKE has performed at venues such as: Cafe Nema (Washington D.C), Cafe Habana (Philadelphia, PA), The Tritone (Philadelphia, PA), World Cafe Live (Philadelphia, PA), Fergies Pub (Philadelphia, PA), Wildflower Cafe (Bethlehem, PA), The Delancey (NY), and The Bessie Smith Jazz Society (Lancaster, PA)
