Few bands have the ability to evoke an old-school throwback vibe and yet sound entirely fresh and new at the same time. Royal Jelly Jive is one of those bands. Combining elements of Soul, Rock, Swing and Hip-Hop, Royal Jelly Jive shakes up any dance-party and grooves harder than your typical rock n roll band dares to go. Fronted by the enigmatic singer Lauren Bjelde, who brings a one-of- a-kind sultry voice to her magnetic stage presence, Royal Jelly leans on the sounds of swingin'; horns, gritty keys and a bumpin' rhythm section to carry a crowd into bliss...creating an unforgettable live experience that will leave you wanting more.

Since forming in San Francisco's own Boom Boom Room in the summer of 2013, Royal Jelly Jive has quickly ascended to become one of the Bay Area's most anticipated acts. After releasing their debut album to a packed house at Slims in late 2014, they hit the road and have been touring non-stop ever since. Playing hi-energy shows and festivals in cities and towns across the West Coast, they have captivated the ears and hearts of almost all who hear them, intoxicating the masses with their unique and infectious music. more >>>
Award winning Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Robin Jackson, known for his wild, theatrical contributions to bands like Vagabond Opera and the March Fourth Marching Band, has brought a strong presence to the world of indie folk. Mr Jackson, joined by his all-star ensemble of NW musicians The Caravan, draws upon the moody spirit of his rain-soaked, Portland, Or. home to create an eclectic brew of dreamy folk-pop, cinematic indie rock and above all, enigmatic storytelling.

With a degree in ethnomusicology and an unflagging musical curiosity, Jackson has lived and busked around the world, from an intentional beach community in New Zealand to the streets of Europe. He is a master of a myriad of instruments, from saxophone to mbira and has also performed or recorded with notable acts such as Gregory Allen Isakov, Emancipator, Devotchka, and Amanda Palmer. An impresario of community and collaboration, Jackson has built on his colorful, bohemian upbringing and dedicated himself to creating and supporting music around Portland, Or where he lives on an urban farm with his cat and a circus. His newest album, Dark Stars, was recorded in the legendary Type Foundry Studios and is available everywhere. more >>>
