Uncle Jam
A band from Göteborg with double identities. Comes in handy sometimes. One of them is an outfit called Gumbo. You can read about them - and their great cd - here on this website. They play ace New Orleans rock'n'roll mixed with original stuff, appear at blues festivals and wins prizes. Great band.

The other identity is Uncle Jam. The sleazy kid brother. Plays just as well but is always having a party. Always. You usually find them at popular bars along the Swedish west coast in the summertime, playing for a merrily dancing and beerdrinking crowd. Reeling off sweaty rock classics like there is no tomorrow. You gotta be there!
