Jan Marie & The Mean Reds

The Mean Reds is a 5-piece band playing a variety of vintage and "new vintage" music, including swing, blues, jazz, gospel, r&b, and soul. The players are highly skilled long-time jazz and blues musicians, led by powerhouse frontwoman Jan Marie on lead vocals.

The Mean Reds sound is unique, and combines Jan Marie's Billie Holiday-esque lag-vocal technique with a growling trumpet and oscillates between tinkling ivories and pounding keys on a Hammond B3 organ.

East Aja Steely Dan Tribute

East Aja is the REAL DEAL! Just like the real Steely Dan, they begin with a short set of instrumental soul/funky jazz, including both standards and original compositions written by members of the group. Then the full 9-piece band hits the stage, complete with backup singers and a horn section, and masterfully executes the hits, and even some deep cuts too!

Last October, their performance at Ryles nearly sold out- don't miss it this time around! If you're a fan of Steely Dan, you will absolutely love this band and have a great time!
