Junior League Band‘s Jelly Roll made our Top 20-Something of 2010 for good reason. We were hit immediately with lead singer Lissy Rosemont’s distinctive and seductive voice, her jammin’ banjo licks and the band’s tight grooves. We love Jelly Roll because it takes some chances and breaks new ground while remaining true to blues, jazz, rock and bluegrass.
We weren’t the only ones who took notice: the Washington Post rated Jelly Roll D.C.’s “Best Alt-Country Album” of 2010.
Check out this latest video for “So I Want Out” off the album. Fans were asked to send in video clips of their best booty-shakin’ moves, and this is the result. Oh, and that’s Lissy in the eye-popping red dress shakin’ it pretty damn good herself.
