Although this does not relate to construction or development in Ann Arbor, Shakey Jake was an integral part of the urban experience in this city. He was a local institution. He will be missed.

Friends recall larger-than-life persona of Shakey Jake

"Wearing his trademark three-piece suit, hat and dark sunglasses, the man known simply as "Shakey Jake" could be seen playing his guitar on the street downtown for as long as many can remember. And when he stopped inside local stores or restaurants for breakfast or lunch, it was if a movie-star had walked in."
