Currently Jake performs the Boston area with his Quartet of fellow Berklee Students, playing a collection of jazz, blues, gospel, pop, and original compositions.

“Koelzer already conjures the low-light ambience of hip uptown nightclubs and large downtown ballrooms, exuding confidence from flawless technique and spot-on intonation.”

“His is a straight-ahead delivery, fairly free of ornamentation, devoid of the histrionics that soil most popular music nowadays. How refreshing!”

– Mariss McTucker Lively Times

“Though he’s sitting at a piano, the passion in Koelzer’s music is through the vocals.”
