Jive Pilots

Jive Pilots


The Jive Pilots sound like a house on fire and an infinite calm. Imagine free-flowing rock n roll, irresistable songwriting, with elements of funk, soul, and blues.


Jive Pilots deftly walks the line between styles. This quartet bridges the gap between rock, funk, and the blues.

Their penchant for well-crafted songs and infectious grooves has earned them a loyal legion of followers in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Now, on the heels of their debut EP, $100 Hamburger, the Jive Pilots are hitting the road giving new fans a dose of their distinctive sound.

The Jive Pilots have recently shared the stage with a handful of incredible national artists such as The Karl Denson Trio (Bobby Ace Records), Ike Reilly Assassination (RockRidge), Brothers Past (SCI Fidelity) and World Leader Pretend (Warner Bros),and Wish You Were Here.

Their music has been described as “the love child of the Beatles and the Killers,” but shades of other artists widely influence the band, from Eric Clapton and My Morning Jacket, to The Clash, the Allman Brothers, Talking Heads, and the Band.

Always open to the spontaneity of the moment, their energetic performances have captured audiences at such well-known venues throughout Columbus such as Little Brothers, The Newport Music Hall, The Basement, Andyman’s Tree House, and Park Street Tavern. Members of the Jive Pilots have previously shared the stage with the following national acts Derek Trucks Band, Yonder Mountain String Band, Ian Moore, Railroad Earth, Love and Rockets, and many others.
