Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Something has been causing a stir in the pond of the Arkansas (and surrounding) music scene lately, and that thing is The 1 Oz. Jig. This bands sharp funk will grab you like a worm on a hook and reel you into their catchy songs often about real life situations with a clever twist... Good songwriting, a tight rhythmn and full horn sections, and intense onstage charisma makes this group an instant crowd favorite. The 1 Oz. Jig started in Fayetteville, AR a few years ago and has been spreading their fanbase like hot butter on breakfast toast. In the few short years the band has been together they have collected an impressive number of NAMA awards including Best Funk Band of 2011. In 2010 the band released it's first album (self-titled) which was quickly nominated for album of the year and was also featured on a compilation of original Fayetteville, AR artists entitled "Fayetteville 2011".
The recipe starts with the songwriting, swanky croon and funk chunk attack on guitar of NAMA 2011 and 2008 Singer/Songwriter of the Year Jeff Kearney.Funky beats, melodic bass lines, and percussive techniques lay the perfect foundation for the bands horn section(usually 2-4 players) hooking and jabbing through it all, blowing a thick layer of tight brass over the top. The results are undeniable.
If you are in a crowd at a Jig show don't be surprised to heart the ausdience singing along, for the crowd participation is one of the key elements of the bands live show. The 1 Oz. Jig puts the "fun" back in "funk"! But what else would you expect from a band named after a fishing lure?
