Bare Jams are an upbeat, fun lovin' collective. Self described as 'Poppy-Funk with a sneaky bit of Reggae and Ska'. Their fun rhythms involve catchy lyrics about twists on day-to-day life, parties, their pet gnome and the Hokey-Cokey sometimes even some politics and other meaningful stuff. They'll have you chillin', then get you skankin', even put a smile on your face. Organic and freshly brewed party vibes, which really shouldn't be missed.
Founded by Ollie (vocals/guitar) and Sam (drums/percussion) in 2011 as a busking duo, Bare Jams quickly grew into the 6-headed party phenomenon we know today. After the release of their first EP ‘Rigglet’ in 2014 the journey really started. Now they drive their van ‘Linda Dotty Vagabond’ from country to country, spreading joy as if life’s a soda commercial. Their big ol’ farmhouse is the centre of creation, leading to plenty of new material. Their EP ‘Cold Treats’ has been released in the Netherlands with This Could Be Your Music Label in December 2015.
On the live side of things, Bare Jams have supported La Pegatina on their Dutch club tour in December 2015. Together with their Spanisch amigo’s, they played the country’s best venues including Melkweg (Amsterdam), Effenaar (Eindhoven) and ‘t Paard van Troje (Den Haag). They also supported and shared stages with Will & The People, By The Rivers, The Beat, Tree House Fire, BabyHead, Wille & The Bandits, Yes Sir Boss!, Odjbox, Biggtop, Too Many T's plus many more. The summer seasons see them play a good string of UK festivals including Boomtown Fair, Kaya, Curious Yellow Weekend as well as European shows in Holland and Belgium.
