Well, we are "the real" Jamnesia band, but someone claim jumped us on the name so we had to settle for "Jamnesia2" for our online presence. But since a little reorganization happened since then, we are now happily "Jamnesia 2.0" or "Jamnesia2" the new improved release!
Jamnesia2 is the bastard child of vocalist/drummer/bassist Russ Klein. It started out as an idea he got while hit on the head with a rock at the Santa Clara Valley Fiddle Association while Russ was holding court on his stand up bass surrounded by banjo, guitar, mandolin and fiddle players. As Russ admits, there were not too many stand up bass players around that day, "they were on me like a duck on a June bug!" But the die was cast and Klein found that he also shared an affinity for rock n' roll, blues, and jazz.
Together with Rob Reaugh (vocals, acoustic guitar), Marc Spilka (harmonica, saxophone, flute), "Mild Bill" Coates (lead guitar), Seth Porter (drums), and bassist Marty Cohen, their insightful and gripping original blend of rock n' roll and jazzy blues is kicking ass around the SF Bay area.
