The Mean Reds is a 5-piece band playing a variety of vintage and “new vintage” music, including swing, blues, jazz, gospel, r&b, and soul. Comprised of highly skilled long-time jazz/blues musicians, and led by powerhouse frontwoman Jan Marie on lead vocals, The Mean Reds mix genres with plentiful ease, coaxing even the most left-footed of folks to take the dancefloor.
The Mean Reds sound is unique. Combining growling trumpet, upright bass, drums/washboard, piano and sometimes even Hammond B3 organ with Jan Marie’s black coffee voice makes for a uniquely gritty yet saccharine tincture. Listen at http://music.ojanmarie.com
