…a TREMENDOUS live band – a real crowd pleaser ! –Barnett English, Joshua Tree Music Festival
An intoxicating mixed drink of hard swingin’ soul-jive, Royal Jelly Jive dives deep head-first into the old school throwback sounds of the 1940’s with a groovy new twist. Rapturous horns, sleek bass, elegant keys and swingin’ cymbals are just some of the sweet tastes of the Royal Jelly Jive sound. All fronted by the sultry and soulful vocals of Lauren Bjelde, this band will have you stompin’ your feet with crooked delight until the moon comes back up again!
Since forming in San Francisco’s own Boom Boom Room in the summer of 2013, Royal Jelly Jive has quickly ascended to become one of the Bay Area’s most anticipated acts. After releasing their debut album to a packed house at Slims in late 2014, they hit the road and have been touring non-stop ever since. Playing high-energy shows and festivals in cities and towns across the West Coast, they have captivated the ears and hearts of almost all who hear them, intoxicating the masses with their unique and infectious music.
