James Ellis and the Jealous Guys is one of Melbourne’s best-loved country and honky tonk bands.
In 2018, they released their debut record, It Ain’t Texas (But It Ain’t Bad), which won Best Country Album at the Age Music Victoria Awards.
In 2018, they also played their first US shows with an appearance at AmericanaFest and other Nashville venues such as Honky Tonk Tuesdays at the Americana Legion Post 82 and the 5 Spot.
In Australia, they’ve played Out on the Weekend, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Melbourne Music Week, Dashville Skyline, Kyneton Music Festival and New Year’s Evie and have shared the stage with the Deslondes, Lillie Mae, Charley Crockett and Birdcloud.
Since the start of 2018, the group has also been co-hosting a weekly honky-tonk and western swing residency at the Rooks Return in Fitzroy which has become the go-to regular two-step gig in Melbourne.
Melbourne rock band The Trepids are launching their bloody slick new single 'Something's Got To Give' at The Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar this Feb. It's been a while between new tunes, so we're fucking stoked to share this with you.
