The Shady Recruits LIVE @ Pisgah Brewing 2-16-2019
The Shady Recruits is a Greenville, SC based “supergroup” led by drummer Jack Ryan from the Marcus King Band. The ensemble features musicians from other prominent local and regional bands.

The Jordan Okrend Experience is more than one thing. First, there is the signature sound, vintage pop imbued with an infectious funky jazz edge. There is also something else. Soulful music with socially conscious lyrics, that has all been but lost in today’s current pop climate.
