Yesterday I went to see Bob Weir & Ratdog along with the Allman Brothers Band at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Buffalo. (I’ll have more on this show later in the week)
In the parking lot there was an awesome jam band by the name of “Rebel Jelly” playing before the show. These guys are from Rochester, NY and are getting gigs all over the east coast even though they’ve only been together for a short time.
From the bands website they consider themselves to be Funk / Pop / Fusion with improvisation for a unique sound. R. Jelly’s members share a wide range of influences. We feel the one’s most touched upon in this musical context are Stevie Wonder, Bill Frisell, Carter Beauford, The Meters, Thom Yorke and Micheal Jackson – other influences include sleep deprivation, humor, free food and the inexplicable passion.
