Throughout the years, Jazzam evolved through many different band members and instrumentations, but the core has always remained the same. Jazzam was founded by Glenn Strother and Marc Sterling in 2002 as a soul jazz trio playing covers and eventually originals. As the original music evolved, more members were added to the line-up to grow the band’s sound. It was during this time that Jazzam’s signature sound emerged.
The Jazzam sound is impossible to categorize, but can best be described as danceable hard-groove music with doses of electronica. Jazzam fuses modern with vintage sounds with influences ranging from: old-school breakbeat funk, modern house jazz, dub-step, R&B/urban vocals, and many more diverse, global stylings. Jazzam has shared the stage with an impressive array of national professional artists including: Steve Kimock & Bernie Worrell, Papadosio, BoomBox, The Headhunters, Keller Williams, George Clinton, Soulive, The Brothers Past, Lotus, Project Object w/ Napoleon Murphy Brock & Ike Willis, Rusted Root, Toots & The Maytals, and The Derek Trucks Band, to name just a few.
On NYE ’09/’10 Jazzam performed a “farewell for now” show at the Rex Theater in their hometown, Pittsburgh, PA. Today, 11 years since the band’s founding, Jazzam is rejuvenated after a short hiatus. With the original core members still in place and a fresh line-up, Jazzam is back to creating the cutting-edge music they’re known for.
