Biography

Drawing from influences in funk, reggae, bluegrass, jazz blues and progressive rock, this 6 piece from South Bend Indiana is definitely on the rise. Jassy Grazz is growing into one of the Midwest's most exciting up and coming acts. Carefully composed originals are complemented and balanced by the band's ability to improvise into a musical playground that combines many styles and genres. Festivals such as Summer Camp, and Victor Wooten's Friends Uv Nature & Knowledge, gave the band an opportunity to share the bill with some of the top acts in the nation such as Keller Williams, MOE, Umphrey's McGee, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and numerous others. JG's first appearance at Summer Camp was highlighted by an impromptu set in the church, in which MOE bassist Rob Derhak, joined the band. Wherever they play, its obvious that this band enjoys what they do. Interacting with the audience in a lighthearted, almost comedic manner, the band weaves their originals in and out of a vast catalog of covers including Funkadelic, NIN, The Police, Stevie Wonder, Old Dirty Bastard, Bill Withers, INXS, The Roots, and Black Sabbath just to name a few. Jassy Grazz's popularity is growing fast, and they're sure to be in a city near you soon, so don't miss them!
