About Papa Dynamite & the Jive


Portland based "Papa Dynamite & the Jive" delivers a blend of memorable originals and classic blues, swing and r&b in the finest tradition of the American Songbook. Grown in Oregon, Papa Dynamite's high-energy signature sound has dancers and listeners of all ages coming back for more. Original tunes like, "Billy LaRue," "Ace High" and "Wonderful as Well" pay homage to the greats that inspired this Pacific Northwest band.

Andy Gerzel's swingin' Guitar work and Vocal stylings keep the music moving and Portland Sax legend, Butcher Pete Galluzzo chops it up on Tenor. Also on the front line is soul-blues Singer Jen Tyler, a true blend of power and grace. Wildman David Hopkins on Double Bass rolls like thunder while Don Viramontes on Drums powers the engine room for the Papa D machine.

All in all, a great show and a great time for everyone. Don't miss the next performance of Papa Dynamite!
