Jelly Bread served as a funky appetizer in Crown Room

Jelly Bread is paired once again with Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk

Jelly Bread has been rising quickly in the last year since it solidified its quartet with keyboardist Eric Matlock.

The Reno band has been booked solid for a year and has been invited to several festivals, including July’s High Sierra Music Festival. But it still has room to climb.

“Our goal is Jazz Fest (in New Orleans),” guitarist Dave Berry said.

A Lake Tahoe mini version of Jazz Fest will be held Saturday in the Crystal Bay Casino when Jelly Bread opens for Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, one of NOLA’s most popular bands.

The last time Neville played here Dec. 16, he was with the super jam Dragon Smoke, with Galactic’s Stanton Moore and Robert Mercurio and guitarist Eric Lindell. Jelly Bread also opened that show. It has been paired several other times with Dumpstaphunk, whose bandleader has been outspoken in its praise for Jelly Bread.

“He’s not easily impressed,” Berry said. “Getting guys like that digging what you’re doing, that’s definitely thrilling.”

Like Dumpstaphunk, each Jelly Bread member sings. They all write songs, too, although they have too busy to record them lately. But that will soon change.

“In the end of May we will go into the studio,” Berry said. “We now have seven or eight songs and we’ll lay them down and see what sticks. When you go out on the road things just get written and pop up all the time at sound check or just late night after a gig sitting with guitars.”
