The Red Room will be jammed with Jelly Bread Sept. 13.
A funky quartet from Reno, Jelly Bread moves into the intimate venue before three playing shows this fall in Crystal Bay Casino’s Crown Room.
Bassist Brady Carthen, who missed some shows due to illness, was back with Jelly Bread during its tour last week through Southern California and Arizona.
The band is working on a five-song EP.
“We’re just waiting on the horn lines,” said lap steel guitarist Dave Berry. “We’re going to finish recording those in the next couple of weeks and then do the final vocals and plan on getting it out this winter.”
The band’s last album, “No Dress Code,” had 14 tracks. Berry said it is more feasible to put out a couple of EPs next year instead.
The band had a busy summer playing several festivals, including High Sierra. It opened a July show in Eugene, Ore. for Bruce Hornsby. During the Guitarfish festival, the band bonded with the Motet.
Jelly Bread will play a few shows this fall with the Motet, including one in the Crown Room on Oct. 25.
Jelly Bread and Friends headline Crystal Bay’s Locals Last Waltz Nov. 30, and on Dec. 8 for the second time in two years open for the super jam Dragon Smoke, whose bandleader Ivan Neville is an effusive Jelly Bread supporter.
Berry said the band elected to hold off its plans for a Midwest tour to take most of November and December off to write songs and spend holidays with family.
When: 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13
