ABOUT ROYAL JELLY JIVE- 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 is one of those bands. Combining elements of Soul, Rock, Swing and Hip-Hop, Royal Jelly 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.

 

ABOUT MIDTOWN SOCIAL-

It’s time to stretch, hydrate, and double-knot your dancing shoes, because The Bay Area’s favorite soul party band, Midtown Social, is back with their first full-length release.  Midtown Social’s freshly squeezed blend of California soul, funk, and rock is downright irresistible. Midtown Social is a nine-piece tour-de- force. But it’s more than just a band. Together, these nine musicians are a collaborative community of writers, arrangers and artists. When they’re on stage, they invite you into the family.

The Midtown mission is to spread the message of positive social change through art and music. As rates of eviction and homelessness soared due to technology-driven corporate gentrification across the Bay Area, Midtown Social began hosting charitable fundraisers following the release of their debut EP Down On Sixth, including one for the Homeless Youth Alliance.

With San Francisco and Oakland flush with tech money but wracked by police violence and deepening social tensions, the band decided their next release should stand as a voice for the people. Midtown Social documents the struggle to make art in a city and a society divided against itself. The record is inspired by the determination to push onward: Midtown Social serves up food for hungry souls—fuel for a revolution of free, open and creative thought.

Written and recorded as the Bay Area artistic community continued its exodus amid evictions and club closures, Midtown Social speaks with the voices of a generation that understands the power and beauty of its diversity. Each track represents a sound or aesthetic representative of that community by drawing upon the colorful musical impulses that compose it.
