The Jelly Roll Men are on a mission. They want to the bring old-school blues to everybody out there. The band earned a solid reputation for beings a great live act and a real crowd-pleaser. Make no mistake. In spite of their stage antics, these guys take their music seriously hey don’t play old-school blues to be different, they play it because it’s in their soul – and they are playing it just like it’s like it’s supposed to be played.

The band was started by the two brothers – Kent Erik and Thomas Grim Thorvaldsen – seven years ago as “The Nine Fingers Blues Band” until they recently decided to change their name to something a bit more appropriate for the style of music they play. They have worked with the likes Joakim Tinderholt, Tommy Moberg (Trickbag) and Ronni Boysen (the Kokomo Kings).

I also had the pleasure to play with them and -we did a little tour together- and I reckon they are a pretty solid combo and fun guys to be on the road with. They really sounded good playing my songs, but they sounded even better playing their stuff. I was truly humbled when they asked me to produce their debut record and be their musical “consigliere.” I did not take this as a joke and I worked them hard for weeks before recording the album you are holding and even harder during the recording session.

Hard work pays off and I reckon I’m very pleased with the result. This album not only captures the spirit of all the great 1950’s blues recordings. It also SOUNDS just like it!
