Earles of Newtown is an eclectic 8 piece band featuring 8 vibrant and expressive soloists.  The music we refer to as Dixie Rag Funk-Jazz is originally composed, dance orientated and spans genres through prohibition era jazz, funk, dance grooves, and electro swing.  The Earles original compositions present elements of New Orleans horns, rockabilly guitar, and stride piano coming together to complete a circusy high-energy vibe that is inspired by dance club and Burning Man culture.



“San Francisco Style” is the best term Royal Jelly Jive can find in describing their unique and intoxicating sound.  Led by dynamic front-woman Lauren Bjelde, this sultry sextet rocks into unchartered musical territories with their infectious blend of modern and throwback sensibilities.

Armed with retro horns, razor-sharp beats, and groovy songs that are near impossible to resist, RJJ can pair with your fancy cocktail at that smoky jazz club or shake up even the funkiest dance party.
