With Alvetta Newby-Jones on vocals, Bryan “Slappy” Goodman on guitar, Matt Jennings on keyboard, Solomon Wright on bass and Richard Jones on drums, Cherry Royale is a sonic blend of various musical backgrounds, tied together by a mutual, life-long love of music. In addition to years of cultivating their passion and craft, each member of the group brings to the table previous experience with widely respected, groundbreaking indie groups.

With that experience also comes the courage to create boldly, as they forge through new ground in a musical landscape that hasn’t gotten enough shine of late; knowing without a doubt that as a team, Cherry Royale is dedicated to the same goal: to craft an experience through their music. “Funk is about the chemistry between not only the people playing the music, but the people listening as well,” points out Slappy. “Once you feel that chemistry, it’s absolutely undeniable. You can’t react against it.”

Originally one of a three-part collective studio brainchild called The Axis, Cherry Royale emerged from those early sessions as the vessel through which this new psychedelic funk & soul music would be brought forth.  With the final addition of MJ on keys in early 2011, CR began to tour heavily across the U.S., releasing early studio bootlegs and receiving critical acclaim for their high-energy live shows.

    Im trying to do all the partying I possibly can before my 34th birthday on April 14th to make up for not celebrating the last few years due to some unseen situations. This sounds like a perfect addition to my celebration into another year.
