The Edge originiated in the ‘80’s at Stinson Beach as The Average Beach Band and soon began packing the clubs in the Bay Area as The Edge. Their infamous ‘Uncle Charlie’ club shows are still fondly remembered today by many fans. Currently, lead singer/guitarists Lorin Rowan and Jimmy Dillon, both have their own solo careers. Lorin performs nationally with his brother Chris as ‘The Rowan Brothers. His song “Soldier of the Cross” is the title track of country artist, Ricky Skaggs’ Grammy winning CD. Jimmy’s toured Europe over the last several years with his blues rock band, and now recently started a music camp for kids called ‘Blue Star Music’. On keyboards, Ozzie Ahlers has had Grammy winning success as co-writer and producer with original Jefferson Starship guitarist, Craig Chaquico.
The band’ music features their original brand of rock/reggae, drawing from the likes of Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Police, UB40, The Stones, The Clash, The Beatles, Elvis Costello and The English Beat. As well as the added influences of the sensual percussive rhythms of New Orleans and Cuban music.
Marin County has produced another good one! “Jelly jams with upbeat folk rock, grooves with soulful ballads and is quickly becoming a favorite among North Bay music aficionados” says Sean Smith of Bill Graham Presents. Jelly is tasteful, poignant, humorous, and captivating as they deliver on the blues, American traditionals, shuffles, ballads and slightly demented love songs. A Jelly show combines original compositions along with unique arrangements of several well known artists and other not so well known ones.
