"Danny Fonfeder (Founder of Blueberry Guitars) posted this..."

"I went to Miss Kitty's Salloon in Napierville (25 miles out of Chicago) it was Jam night, and I saw an unbelievable band called "Jet Black Comedy". The lead singer turned 21 on Sunday and this was the first time they were legally able to perform in a bar - the band is just fantastic." - Danny Fonfeder (September 2011)

"Jet Black Comedy" (2015)



Rock n’ roll is alive and well for four musicians from the Chicago suburbs. Two brothers, Henry and Daniel Scherrer, poured their love for nostalgia and classic rock into a band called Jet Black Comedy. Henry, with influences stemming from blues, soul, garage, and psychedelic acts, and Dan with hard rock, classic rock, and metal influences, wanted to start a project that combined the passion and creativity of yesterday with the innovations of today. Started in Wisconsin, the brothers went through many different lineups before settling in Woodridge, IL. Bassist Bob Redman joined the band in 2010, providing thumping bass lines and the graphic design work for JBC. With the newest addition, drummer Eric McCutcheon, joining the group the band is ready to play the biggest festivals and the smallest dives. With the release of their self titled EP “Jet Black Comedy” the band aims to put themselves on the map and plans to gain the respect of their audience and peers, both as a cover and original band.
