Jelly Bread, emerging from Reno, NV, is a tour de force of full frontal funk, thoroughly steeped in a Rock-Americana style, with a dash of rollicking indie alt-rock radio appeal. The band’s influences range from the likes of Stevie Wonder, James Brown & Parlaiment Funkadelic to the reaches of modern contemporaries like Robert Randolph, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Ben Harper and the John Butler Trio. Having shared the stage with Soulive, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, G Love & Special Sauce, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Roy Rogers & The Delta Rythm Kings, Rusted Root, and jamming with Jonny Lang, Jelly Bread has marked over 350 shows under its belt in its 3 year history.
Achilles Wheel, based in the foothills of Northern California’s Sierra Nevada, is a high energy fusion of World and American music played on numerous stringed instruments and a whole truck load of drums. Featuring the singing/songwriting and guitar playing of Paul Kamm and Jonny Mojo, this up and coming group came together in the wake of other projects including The DeadBeats, Buck Love and The HumperHeads, The Jonny Mojo Trio, D’arcana, Collage of I, Euthanasia, and Dead Ahead. The rhythm section of the band is Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and Shelby Snow on bass. Original songs are their focus, but they love old songs too and will use whatever tools are at hand to get a good jam going. Their new CD, Achilles Wheel, Thirteen Hours, recorded at the historic Nevada Theater in Nevada City California, is now available.
