You are here

Since her induction to the jazz world seven short years ago, Jan Marie has made a name for herself as a regular crowd-seducing chanteuse. Jan Marie has been compared to late, great jazz pioneers such as Anita O'Day, Nina Simone, Etta James, and even modern jazz marvels as Eva Cassidy and Amy Winehouse. 

Jan Marie and The Mean Reds is a 5-piece, pro-quality band playing a variety of vintage and "new vintage" music, including swing, blues, jazz, r&b, and soul. Comprised of highly-skilled, veteran 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.
