Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds

Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is an eight-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw-dropping displays of musicianship, it's clear they're focused on delivering the band's infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band's live show is explosive.

Jelly Bread

Over a few short years of touring, Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a powerhouse quintet delivering their high-energy, chameleonic playlist throughout the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert roots-rock meeting the urban tones of soul, dashed with a splash of funkiness. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’em-to-church” organ, come together into a sound that is downright appetizing.

Here, There, & Everywhere, Jelly Bread’s new album was released in early October 2015. The album was mixed by renowned engineer/producer Justin Phelps (Cake, Galactic, Fruition, The Mars Volta, The Neville Brothers, and Dead Kennedys among many others). Jelly Bread has performed shows all throughout the U.S. and landed direct support for the likes of Robert Cray, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Rusted Root, JJ Grey, Dragon Smoke (members of Galactic), The Motet, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Pimps of Joytime, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Orgone, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Carolyn Wonderland, and The California Honeydrops. The band has also appeared at premiere festivals including the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Joshua TreeMusic Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, and Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluesapalooza.

Jelly Bread is singer/drummer Cliff Porter, singer/guitarist Dave Berry, singer/bassist Jeremy Hunt, singer/lead guitarist Sean Lehe, and singer Eric Matlock on keyboards/talk box.
