Harvey’s Kitchen: Junior League Band

6 Comments 12 Jul, 2010
“The Junior League Band is an old-time inspired rock band fronted by the Georgia grown banjo, vocalist, Lissy Rosemont. Based out of Washington, DC, this nationally touring band has been compared to “Alison Krauss and the Band” by the Washington Post, and touts Levon Helm’s own horn players on their catchy single “South Carolina Blues.”  Rosemont has been referred to as one of the “most promising up and coming vocalists on the Americana scene” (Bristol Rythm and Roots Festival) as well as recorded in the studio her old-time banjo with acts such as Missy Elliott and the Pussy Cat Dolls. Rosemont’s family runs the oldest fiddler’s festival in the country, the Old-Time Fiddler’s Convention in Union Grove, NC. The 5 instrumentalists merge these influences with delta blues and pop rock (50′s to Indie Rock) to make for an energetic, sing-song, string heavy, danceable yet mesmerizing live performance. Expect a show ripe with catchy melodies, toe tapping beats, sweet vocals, and some of the countries most talented up and coming players.”  – juniorleagueband.com
I had big plans to finish this session prior to the July 16th release date of their new album, “Jelly Roll”  … and as I look at the current date I see it’s only July 12th.  Woo.  Good for me.
Keep an eye on this band as they rise in the charts.  Many thanks for the lovely visit.
