Jethro Jeremiah Band

Jethro was born in Mendocino, California.   He grew up in a family that loved to sing, and began performing in plays and musicals in high school. He moved to San Francisco around the age of twenty and started writing songs. Jethro’s distinctive music often has a reggae feel, while his voice is that of a soul singer. His songs come from the heart and his lyrics have more than a passing acquaintance with the street, which is where Jethro first really began to sing.

Wednesday January 31st


“Progessive Americana” is the music of ‘Rattlebox’, featuring guitarist/singer-songwriter Lorin Rowan (Rowan Brothers,San Francisco Music Club,The Edge)with his finger pickin’ acoustic roots in folk/rock and world music, complementing his clear tenor vocal, backed by fellow musicians, Barry Sless, steel guitar extraordinaire, (Phil Lesh & Friends, David Nelson Band,Moonalice); and cellist virtuoso, Doug Harman (Norton Buffalo, Alex DeGrassi, Susan Cianni).

The combination of these musicians and their unique cutting-edge instrumentation highlight their ‘outside-the-box’ improvisations as they interweave together, creating a fresh, exciting sound with powerful melodies, intriguing lyrics, and dazzling instrumental interludes.
