Jellyroll has forged a sound that is at once assured and fine-tuned with freshly conceived arrangements, yet firmly steeped in the traditional form. From the beginning, the band has embraced a high energy swingin' sound which they continue to expand upon. Singer Belinda Blair fronts the band with verve and moxie while the musicianship is as precise as a well-made martini. The repertoire covers jazz, swing and jump blues of the era including the songbooks of Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Big Mama Thornton and other jump-blues greats. If that's not enough to rattle your bones by, Jellyroll offers up their own brand of high-energy original songs that have filled dance floors and captivated audiences up and down the west coast as well as their home base in San Francisco.
“Singer Belinda Blair scats like a young Ella Fitzgerald.”
