Jerry on the Moon just performed a New Year’s Eve gig at Rome’s newest Broad Street bar, Dark Side of the Moon.
With a new album out and slew of upcoming gigs, the band is poised to take on a new year.
Northwest Georgia-based band Jerry on the Moon has fused the influence of artists such as The Band, Stevie Wonder and the Talking Heads with their own unique style to create a contemporary sound they hope is timeless.
Weaving personal stories into their songwriting, JOTM brings audiences to the banks of Rome’s three rivers with lyrics crafted from their personal journals, giving listeners a peek into the window of who they really are.
This raw and exposed honesty, coupled with with catchy hooks, screaming guitar riffs, a shiny new horn section, make for an energetic show whenever they perform.
Jedd Lovel (drums), Jack Moss (guitar), Steven Powers (bass), and Adam Klingensmith (guitar) are the nucleus of the group. But JOTM keeps evolving and have added John Pollard (sax) and Anthony Avitollo (trombone).
The band has opened for such bands as Atlanta Rhythm Section, Dopapod, Tauk, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Strung Like a Horse, Flow Tribe and CBDB. They were also frequently booked at Brother’s Bar in Jacksonville, Alabama, where the likes of Greg Allman and Zac Brown have graced the stage.
With the release of their newest album, “Old Age Comes to Those Who Wait,” JOTM has expanded the reach of their music. The album was recorded in Rome at Ben Mcree’s studio. Additional instrumentation on the album was provided by Rome’s Tim Bowen. The album is available for streaming on Spotify and Rhapsody.
Whether you are enjoying a glass of “shine” around the firepit, or catching a show at your local night spot, Jerry on the Moon has a sound that makes any time the right time to jam.
The band’s upcoming gigs include Pelhams in Jacksonville, Alabama on Jan. 23; Soulshine Pizza Factory in Nashville on Feb. 5 and Crimson Tiger in Anniston, Alabama on Feb. 13.
