Event Details

“San Francisco Soul” is the best term to describe Royal Jelly Jive's unique and intoxicating sound. Led by dynamic front-woman Lauren Bjelde, this sultry sextet rocks into uncharted musical territories with their infectious blend of modern and throwback sensibilities. Armed with retro horns, razor-sharp beats, and groovy songs that are near impossible to resist, RJJ can pair with your fancy cocktail at that smoky jazz club or shake up even the funkiest dance party.

And they’ll still leave you wanting more.

Born out of Funk and Happenstance at John Lee Hooker's Boom Boom Room in 2014, only steps away from the historic Fillmore Auditorium, Royal Jelly Jive has gone full-steam ahead in embracing music as their truest calling. They've produced two full-length studio albums, headlined sold-out shows across the U.S., and toured tirelessly. All with the hope to "Spread the Jelly."

From the West Coast to the U.K., RJJ continues to sweep crowds off their feet, hooking the hearts and ears of everyone that sees them. Tour highlights include sharing stages with Michael Franti and Spearhead, New Orleans legends Rebirth Brass band, as well prominent slots at festivals such as Napa Valley’s Bottlerock.


The concert proceeds go to Devoted to Children which is a nonprofit foundation supporting the needs of abandoned and orphaned children in Haiti. For 7 years now, D2C has operated an all Haitian staffed children's home in Haiti for 8 children ages 5 to 14.  D2C focuses on providing physical needs such as shelter, nutritious food, clothing, medical and dental care.  Each child attends school which is not free in Haiti. The children also receive tutoring, and participate in other after-school activities such as dance, yoga, swim lessons and more. In addition, the D2C Family aims to support the children's overall social wellbeing and growth into future leaders who will be able to give back to their community.
