Event Details

From the opening bars of their debut LP, you can tell AJ & The Jiggawatts came to play rough. In a world where mid-tempo and middle-of-the-road soul permeates the airwaves, this crew of G.E.D. Soul killers are drawing a line in the sand by making soul music that hits harder, faster and nastier than just about anyone in the game today. AJ Eason’s gin-soaked vocal-howls drip with a carefree carousing not unlike that of a street-smart hustler making moves to make ends meet. The band follows suit with highly syncopated melodics, often at breakneck speed, all while maintaining an almost inhuman tightness. Toss all of these elements into a highball glass and garnish it with a pinch of rock n’ soul and you’ve got the makings for a serious, raw-soul cocktail.

AJ & The Jiggawatts’ self-titled, full-length debut eloquently captures the vibe of a high energy, no-nonsense band. The entire album plays out like a wild night on the town with the band, and there is a good chance you are going to jail before the night’s over. Tracks like “Back Alley Beale Street” and “Brown Bottle Fever” transport the listener into the many bourbon-drenched, juke joints of Memphis while tracks like “Throw A Fit” literally explode with frenetic energy. “Get Wild,” “The Drop,” and “Shake It For Me” bring the raucous party element to the record while “Once In A Lifetime” and “Typical Feeling” keep things nice and tender. In terms of attitude and straight-up bad-assery, this is one of the hypest albums you are going to hear in 2014.

After releasing one of the most pulsating 7″ records on the label, “Don’t Mess With Me” b/w “Pimp Decisions,” the band explodes with an album’s worth of rough, tough, killer soul not to be missed! The Jiggawatts came to get wild! Try to keep up.

Aj And the Jiggawatts

If you're a child of the 80's you might get the name check from the newest edition to the G.E.D. Soul cavalcade of artists. That's "Jigga-watts" as in "1.21 Jiggawatts" as Doc Emmett Brown said to Marty McFly in those classic movies about time travel to and from the future. A.J. Eason has been dropping soul bombs on stages throughout the south east for over a decade in a number of different groups (including our very own Coolin' System). We've always admired Mr. Eason's style and straight up bombastic... View More
