JACOB JOLLIFF BAND WITH OTTER OPRY

AT MONTEREY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

After wowing audiences as part of Béla Fleck’s touring band in 2022, mandolinist Jacob Jolliff will be coming to Monterey on Tuesday, July 9th with his own band in tow as a featured part of Otter Opry’s 2024 concert season. Here’s what Béla Fleck had to say about this remarkable young musician: “Jacob is a serious player. Considering his strong musical concept, formidable technical abilities, and a powerful work ethic, he is a mandolinist to watch.”

A former member of two massively popular progressive bluegrass bands, Joy Kills Sorrow and the Yonder Mountain String Band, Jolliff is one of the country’s premier contemporary mandolinists. He attended Berklee School of Music on a full scholarship, and he won the National Mandolin Championship in Winfield, KS in 2012. A fixture in the national bluegrass community, he has collaborated and shared the stage with Darol Anger, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Michael Daves, Tony Trischka, and David Grisman, to name just a few.

Now in 2024, the mandolinist’s primary focus is the Jacob Jolliff Band, a group of virtuosic pickers that play Jacob’s original instrumentals and showcase his singing. The group has released two albums: “Instrumentals Vol. 1” in 2018 and “The Jacob Jolliff Band” in 2022. In addition to Jacob himself, the band features Myles Sloniker on bass, Ross Martin on guitar, and George Jackson on fiddle. This will definitely be a concert to write home about, so get your tickets now. The event includes a public jam starting at 4:00pm and a delicious dinner at 5:30pm ($12.50 before July 6th, $17.50 at the door). Online ticket sales will end at noon the day of the performance.

7pm. Monterey United Methodist Church, 1 Soledad Drive, Monterey. $35/show (CBA members $30; 15 and under free); $12.50-17.50/pre-show dinner. Tickets and information at www.otteropry.org
