Jelly Roll Mortals - a DC-area collision of musical vagabonds.  Formed in 2007, this quintet of seasoned DC singers/songwriters/instrumentalists combine top-drawer tune-smithing, stellar harmonies, virtuosic playing and low-key sense of humor into an entertaining stew of rock, country and the like.  Jelly Roll Mortals mostly play their own compositions, but also enjoy taking creative liberties with some of the best songs they never wrote.
