The band was started by singer/songwriter and guitarist Christian Walsh, blending folk, blues, and straight ahead rock n’ roll, creating an upbeat, rootsy and original classic sound with a contemporary grit from the Santa Cruz mountains of California. He is joined by Dan Knox on lead guitar, Brendan Brose on bass, Tony Whittaker on keyboards and backing vocals, and Jonny Hampton on drums and backing vocals.
Together they create a high energy, toe tapping rootsy rock n’ roll sound of original mountain rock music that will keeps you dancing, and satisfies the music pallet of all ages with a classic sound of an era all but forgotten and an energy that screams ‘ Rock n’ Roll”!
Jive Machine habitually bends the rules, blurs the lines, and stretches musical boundaries. Their music takes listeners on a sonic rollercoaster that fuses elements of old-school funk, progressive rock, blues, and soul. Throughout their set, you can hear diverse influences such as The Meters, Jimi Hendrix and Joe Satriani. Jive Machine is uniquely able to incorporate new ideas while paying homage to the great artists who came before them. Jive Machine is defined by a strong rhythmic foundation, infectious melodies, tasteful lead guitar virtuosity, and crisp horn lines. It’s impossible not to be captivated and amazed by the talent of this group from Santa Cruz, California. Look for the band’s shows throughout California as they continue to build their rapidly growing fan base!
