Jimy Young

Jimy Young


Finally, a musician for the times! What you’ll get is a fresh take on classic R&B, Rock, and Blues tunes, with innovative and fresh originals in the mix.


Jimy Young, or ‘JY Jelly’ as his friends know him, started off as a kid in Bayonne, New Jersey playing drums, keyboards and guitar with local school bands and eventually progressed to area DooWop groups.

He relocated to the West coast in the ‘80s, concentrating more on honing his guitar skills, and managed to hook up with members of bands such as Blondie, the Adapters, and the Jets. After sowing his oats there and venturing into studio and live performance work, he returned to the East Coast and began playing live shows at local NYC coffee houses.

JY also formed various singer/songwriter workshops; most notably at Downtime Nightclub with Melissa Cross. Never losing his love for songwriting and always the consummate ‘groovemeister’, he then put together his own band to showcase both originals and his distinctive take on classic hits.

JY has also written for independent films, background and ambient music for documentaries, as well as the theme music for a local cable game show. A potent performer and storyteller, he most recently served as the regular house band at Downtime Nightclub twice each week in NYC.
