The Jazz Me Rhythm & Blues Band was formed over 10 years ago, and is comprised usually of four South Central Pa Musicians.
Included are Mitch Gregory of Camp Hill on lead vocals and harmonica, Kirk Wise from Mechanicsburg who handles the bass as well as vocals and was named Reader’s Choice for 2013 & 2014 Jazz Entertainer of the year, while Doug Brenner of Lewisberry wails on the guitar and also sings occasionally with three part harmony, and finally Josef Brye of Camp Hill who keeps the beat going on the drums. Other guest musicians can be added for larger venues, or if one of the boys needs a night off, including Steve Davis, Ron Rhoads, Jeff Cox, Todd & Jocelyn Goranson, Michael Barcelona, Dave Campbell, Maura Beaver, Jeff Cox, Tim Uhler, Bruce & Bunny Peters, and Jason Mescia to name a few.
In late September 2010 the band released their sixth CD project entitled Mo’ Jazz Me rhythm & blues, which was preceded last year by their Christmas CD named, Jazzy…with a Chance of Flurries.
The Jazz Me Rhythm & Blues Band is considered a variety band in that they perform everything from Sinatra to Santana, Motown to ZZ Top and everything in between. Because of this wide variety of songs, the band can entertain virtually any age group.
Jazz Me has been awarded one of the “Best Of” bands several times by the Sentinel readers, and was named “Simply the Best ” in the Harrisburg Magazine’s Readers Choice poll for 2010, 2011,2012, 2013, 2014 and for 2015. Whether it’s a wedding or an area club, Jazz Me members will not only entertain professionally, but with feeling and excitement for all to enjoy.
