*(4th Wednesdays of The Month)*
A Wednesday Night Dance-Your-Face-Off Event!
ROYAL JELLY are a San Francisco band which some have described as 30's gypsy swing meets Chuck Berry.
Royal Jelly is Tyden Binsted on stand up bass, Felix Macnee on drums, Jesse Lemme Adams on keys, guitar, accordion, and Lauren Bjelde on vocals.
"Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter..." We'll celebrate everyone of you!
"SF quartet Royal Jelly self-describes as “gypsy blues” and “garage jazz,” and either characterization is incredibly apt. Comprised of Lauren Bjelde on vocals, Tyden Binsted on bass, Felix Macnee on drums, and Jesse Lemme Adams on keys, guitar, and accordion, the band delves into sounds not often found around these parts, laying down throwback, jazz-infused, swinging tracks that call to mind the roaring ’20s and big band music, while maintaining a hint of garage rock edge. Crediting influences ranging from ancient Persian poets Rumi and Hafez, to jazz legends Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt, Billie Holiday, and Cab Calloway, and even the great Tom Waits, Royal Jelly brought a bit of them all to the stage for an October performance at BAMM.tv‘s studios, and the band recently released a video of their live take on the song “Don’t Lead Me On” from that show."
