Royal Jelly Jive
Royal Jelly Jive
“San Francisco Soul” is the best term Royal Jelly Jive can find in describing their unique and intoxicating sound. Led by dynamic front-woman Lauren Bjelde, this sultry sextet rocks into uncharted musical territories with their infectious blend of modern and throwback sensibilities. Armed with retro horns, heavy grooves, and catchy songs that are impossible to resist, RJJ can pair with your fancy cocktail at a smoky jazz club and shake up the funkiest dance party.



Born out of Funk and Happenstance at John Lee Hooker's Boom Boom Room in 2014, Royal Jelly Jive has gone full-steam ahead in embracing music as their truest calling. From prominent festival stages all along the West Coast, East Coast and U.K., they continue to sweep crowds off their feet with a high energy live show that leaves crowds yelling for mo’ jelly! Tour highlights include sharing stages with Michael Franti and Spearhead, Rebirth Brass Band, the Avett Brothers, as well prominent slots at festivals such as Napa Valley’s Bottlerock, Portland Waterfront Blues Fest and Outside Lands.
