Jake Mitchell

June’s lineup of the “Free Fridays” concert series in Gainesville — which begins with a performance by Little Jake & The Soul Searchers and ends June 27 with a Tribute to Bo Diddley at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza.

Mitchell, whose first record was with Chess Records in 1957, also recorded with Impact Records in Detroit and has performed at New York’s Apollo Theater. On Friday, Mitchell and his band will make their fifth appearance opening June’s lineup of concerts celebrating the month, Ballard said. “We had an estimated 2,400 folks for his concert last year,” he said, adding that such a crowd makes it the largest-attended concert of the series for the past few years.
