Jesse Schurr band

BandFolk

Mix of folk, jazz, funk and a little bit of country.

Biography

The Jesse Schurr Band blends a variety of styles and rhythms from folk & country to jazz & funk. This diverse mix has enabled them to attract a very wide-ranging audience. Jesse started writing songs when she was 9 years old. Her lyrics paint a portrait of her life experiences and the music is her canvas. All four members bring their ideas to the table to develop the band’s sound and voice, and four-part harmonies help to enhance the soulful expression of Jesse’s melodies.

The band has graced the stage of many major venues in the Philadelphia area, including the TLA, Grape St. Pub, World Café, Abilene’s, Pontiac Grille, Tritone, Dawson St. Pub and the North Star Bar, where they opened for Allanah Davis and Toby Lightman.

They have also branched out to theater, featured in the recent debut production of “LURE” for the 2006 Philadelphia Fringe Festival at Plays & Players Theater, an original play that was inspired by their music and produced by Good People Productions. They have also made guest appearances for the comedy groups Skitsoid and Madhouse Theater Co., as well as Night of 1000 Plays at the Adrienne Theater.
