jellyroot / Press

"Jellyroot is a straight-up barroom rock 'n' roll quartet from Rochester that maintains a classic strain without sounding like just another retro rehash. And besides the obvious fact that the band is happening today, there is a contemporary freshness to the future classics brewing beneath the surface. We'll be enjoying this band long after it's gone."

"Just about every band currently in existence shows signs of some classic influence. Whether it's blues, soul, r&b, or rudimentary rock 'n' roll, one or more of these elements dominates. When bands deviate into unexplored territory, originality and/or chaos can ensue. Rochester rockers Jellyroot fall into that category of exploratory originality, even though Jellyroot is still undoubtedly a rock 'n' roll band. The riffs, the beats, the songs all scream rock 'n' roll, but I'll be damned if I can put my finger on where the band is coming from. It's this mystery, along with the band's tight musicianship, that made its performance so cool last Thursday night at the Bug Jar. The quartet pumped out its mysterious heart and soul to an almost empty room. It wasn't weird per se, but rather evasively clever and cool in its relative simplicity...Stay out there, boys. It's fresh and cool, and it's still rock 'n' roll."
