Jaedyn James & The Hunger
  • Friday, 7:00pm CDT   Ical event icon
  • Jaedyn James (“JJ”) is the lead of the eight piece ‘Raw Funk & Aggressive Soul’ band, The Hunger. JJ‘s work ethic, energy, and music reflect the stylings of James Brown, Etta James, Lucille Ball, Marina Abromovich, and E. E. Cummings. The combination of a powerful, modern woman using vintage sounds and attitudes is not only refreshing, but cause to celebrate. Miss Myra and The Moonshiners are a formidable 5-piece swing band bringing a fresh female-driven perspective to traditional New Orleans and hot club jazz, playing a broad repertoire of classic tunes from the ‘20s and ‘30s and inspired originals.
