Feeling a bit camera shy



Jam Balaya - Don’t let the name fool you. This is not some band from New Orleans talking about food. Jam Balaya is a four member band that is quickly becoming one of the most talked about bands in the Los Angeles music scene. According to LA Weekly, Jam Balaya’s CD “Focused Aggression” has become “one of the most sought after releases by an independent band.” Explosive lyrics, with powerful messages, compliment hard pounding drum beats that sit tightly under catchy guitar riffs. Their sound has been compared to bands like Rage Against The Machine and The Roots with a bit of reggae, funk and blues added into the mix. With combined sounds from Rock and Roll, Hip Hop, Reggae, Funk and Blues, you will understand what the excitement is all about once you get a taste of Jam Balaya. Songs like “Follow you Soul” and “Deranged’ ” have a fun type of feel, while songs like “War”, and “Judas” focus on very serious subject matters. The reggae songs like "Murderation" invite you to dance and have a good time. "Hip Hop got shot" deals with the fact that hip hop lyrics has lost it's substance. There is a song for everyone to enjoy. Jam Balaya songs have been featured on numerous soundtracks as well as Japanese Animation cartoons.

Jam Balaya’s live performance is what seems to set this band apart from the rest. “Go hard or go home” is the driving principle behind their live show. Singer Sean Ellis admits, “when I leave a show I feel like I left my guts on the stage. I give it my all. I wrote these songs from my heart, based on the way I feel about current situations of the world and how I feel about things I have experienced in my life.” Guitar player Marcin Janiszewski plays with passion filled intensity. He is more than just entertaining to watch. He connects with the fans, projecting emotion and rockin’ out while performing. He let’s you know he’s the real thing. Bass player Regina Zernay, gives you the feeling that she is having a passionate encounter (sometimes good and sometimes bad) with her instrument. This girl is BAD. She is intense and aggressive with her playing. Drummer Alexeev Dismuke is amazing. Coming from a background in hip hop, jazz, gospel, and funk, he brings something more to the band than the average drummer. All of these different spices make up what is becoming known to the world as Jam Balaya. After a show you can usually hear the crowd screaming... "one more song" over and over again. People just have a great time at a Jam Balaya Show.

This band Kicks Ass!
