The Jaystorm Project at Phoenix Hill Tavern
Within the first 30 seconds of “Reddy 2 Ride,” a smokin’ hot track on The Jaystorm Project’s latest release A Brand New Funk: The EP, you’re already knee deep in high-energy rock/bluesy funk greatness. Fronted by Jaystorm – a Tennessee-native and rising favorite Southern bluesy, funk, hip-hop son – his latest musical incarnation as The Jaystorm Project, The Jaystorm Project serves up a backing band and a booty-shakin’ style that accentuates his strong, but yet smooth delivery of slick witty lyrics and bluesy funk sound that is part Motown, part old school hip-hop, with an edge of rock which leaves you with total musical genius.
