Jive Mother Mary Band - North Carolina southern rock band, Jive Mother Mary is not an overnight success story. They were not created to take an easy ride to the top. They're the type of jam band that comes from long friendships, 500 mile van rides, and honing your skills for 12 years in smoky bars; which is miraculous when you take into account that the founding members are 26 years old. Steeped in the Southern Rock tradition, this band is the culmination of that magic blend of blood, sweat, and soul that sticks to your ribs like a Sunday dinner.
Since 2006, North Carolina natives and long-time friends Mason Keck (guitar/vocals), Seth Aldridge (drums), and Tyler Schulz (guitar/vocals) toured over 30 states and 6 countries; sharing the stage with legends such as Buddy Guy, Leon Russell, Grand Funk Railroad, and current powerhouses like Blackberry Smoke, The Steel Woods and Drive-By Truckers. Originally formed as a power-trio, the band put out two albums win 2007 and 2009 with Grammy-nominated producer John Custer(Dave Grohl, Corrosion of Conformity, Dag). Years in Los Angeles, CA at Musician's Institute sharpened their skills and resulted in 2013's Big City Blues, and the 2016 release Home Is Where The Heart Is was an amalgamation of two years in Athens, GA.
2018 finds JMM back in North Carolina with a new album in the works, and long time friend Keith Ingalls handling bass duties. With an extensive touring schedule from coast to coast, and across a couple of oceans, you might find Jive Mother Mary burning up the highway with some of your favorite national acts or onto the stage the coolest club in your town!

At this time, Will Sanders also began handling bass duties with the group. In 2011, the band moved to Los Angeles, CA to give the West Coast their unique brand of southern rock and 2013 saw the release of their latest album Big City Blues.
