About Jelly Bread
Jelly Bread¹s musical alchemy blends a core of rock’n’roll peppered with soul and funk, yet is thoroughly steeped in a Rock-Americana style with a dash of alt-rock radio appeal. The band¹s chameleonic playlist is highlighted by dual vocals, four part harmonies, in-the-pocket drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, and take-¹em-to-church organ that is downright appetizing. Jelly Bread has been delving into more extensive touring throughout the United States and being quickly noticed with appearances at festivals to include Joshua Tree Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Cascadia Music Festival, and High Sierra Music Festival. The band was tapped for direct support for Robert Randolph and the Family Band and The Robert Cray Band. The band has also opened for the likes of G. Love and the Special Sauce, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Dragon Smoke (members of Galactic), Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk and more. They shared the stage with Carolyn Wonderland and Dan Lebowitz of ALO during the Gospel set and opened for moe. at the late night set at High Sierra Music Festival. Jelly Bread also performed at the Cascadia Music Festival with Railroad Earth and Bruce Hornsby and the Noise Makers. Jelly Bread is fronted by vocalist, guitarist and lap steel player, Dave Berry, along side songwriter, vocalist and beast of a drummer Cliff Porter, Jeremy Hunt on bass, and Eric Matlock on the B3 Hammond. Jelly Bread shows to every show with a high-energy calling card that melds elements of desert twang and the urban tones of rock, funk, and soul that is balanced by exceptional songwriting and storytelling that keeps people wanting more.
