Join us as for rollicking party as Rootboy Productions kicks off our 6th year of bringing great music to Great Falls.
On Wednesday, January 21, we have our first show of 2015 featuring Jelly Bread
from Reno, Nevada. An eclectic mix of soul, southern rock, country, and funk. You will definitely want to bring your dancing shoes.
The Do Bar (1807 3rd St. NW) has added a new facility that is adjacent to but separated from the main bar. Great stage and sound–it will be ideal for music. Rootboy is excited to have this show there.
Jelly Bread’s musical alchemy blends a dash of alt-rock with soul and funk, yet is thoroughly steeped in Rock-Americana. The band’s 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-’em-to-church organ that is downright appetizing. Jelly Bread has emerged with a high-energy calling card that melds elements of desert twang and the urban tones of funk & rock, balanced by exceptional songwriting and storytelling.
Jelly Bread has been delving into more extensive touring this past year. This past year, Jelly Bread has been tapped to perform opening duties for the likes of Robert Cray, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Dragon Smoke (members of Galactic), The Motet, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Pimps of Joytime, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds and performed on a bill featuring Bruce Hornsby and Railroad Earth. The band has appeared at premiere festivals to include Joshua Tree, Strawberry and High Sierra Music Festivals.
“The band’s hefty combo of deep-groove funk and grizzled roots-rock is tailor made for an evening in the club spent dancing and swaying the night away.” –
