Buddy Jay's Jamaican Jazz Band
Buddy Jay's Jamaican Jazz Band was formed in 2012 by Saxophonist Buddy Jay Kieffer and Trumpeter John England Fisher.
A deep respect for all music Jamaican brought them together.
After amassing an all star line up of Portland based musicians, they set out to do the ska. Writing original Jamaican jazz and rocksteady tunes designed for dancing has been the delight of both band members and audiences.
Buddy Jay and the band's unique take on the genre of Jamaican jazz have allowed them to feel equally comfortable sharing the stage with bands performing a meried of styles including, Cumbia, Afro beat, Soul, and R and B to name a few.
The current lineup features members of All The Apparatus, Love Bomb A GO GO,Cherimoya, The Isrealites, The Dr. Joe Trio, Raffa De Alaska and the DCB, Dauman Brothers, and more.
The Band has finished recording music for a full length record to be released on vinyl early next year.
These heavy hitters always bring the party and never play a room without a dance floor.
Drop that Hemingway novel and prepare for Ska plunder.
Inspired by the likes of Madness, the Toy Dolls, and, well, Pirates — Postmodern Pirates is a horn-driven punk band playing originals and a handful of 80s covers reworked in a ska-ish format. Portland songwriter Kevin Hendrickson is best known as the pirate-core pioneer behind 90s glam rockers Pirate Jenny and the buccaneer band for all ages, Captain Bogg & Salty.
