THE JELLY PROJECT turned Studio 5 into a furnace! Great local band (for now), soon-to-be-national, bet on it!
We sure did NOT need our fur coats tonight!
The Jelly Project has already garnered the ultimate accolade a young band could ask for... biker cred.
Motorcycle gangs flock to see this band tear it up. Outlaws and hipsters alike seem to be smitten with Jelly, a fiery young twin cities girl who's voice and stage presence echo the great Janis Joplin, and her band of burly, bearded boys who lay down the funk like their life depends on it. The fact that this rag tag group stumbled into writing some of the most poignant and moving rock of 2012 should be duly noted.
In the summer of 2010 a freakishly easy collaboration between Angelica Thomas aka Jelly and the rhythm section of a local band quickly turned into The Jelly Project, with every member deciding it a worthwhile venture to back this enigmatic young woman. Fast forward a few months and the entire band is living under one roof, touring in their tricked out RV Rosie, unleashing their Primus-infused blues at Sturgis and other great Midwest venues.
