Just Jethro

Based in Glen Carbon IL

"Just Jethro" is a one-man (Motown to 80's) BOSE band with sequenced material.

Clients can expect attention to detail from:
* song selection/arrangement, 
* to sound, 
* to lighting, 
* to promotion, 
everything is covered.

Song selection/arrangement -

From Motown to 80's favorites, Jethro covers it all.  Songs have sequenced parts (horns, keyboard, etc) allowing for greater flexibility of song selection. Sequencing is actually a more difficult form of music presentation as the performer must specific, unchangeable markers. Much more energy than an acoustic act for essentially the same pricing level. Jethro especially enjoys playing horn-oriented groups like Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, and The Ides of March using this format; something that would otherwise not be possible for most groups.  If touring groups like Rush use sequencing, ....well...

Sound - 
Sound is by BOSE. That would normally be "nuff said," but Jethro adheres to the concept of "BOSE, used as designed." Unit(s) are placed "back-line" meaning they are placed back stage. There are no wedge monitors, no in-ear monitors; nothing separates what Just Jethro hears from the audience experience. This allows him to insure the proper mix at a much lower volume. Just Jethro makes sure of right mix from stage. This arrangement also encourages interaction between Jethro and audience. Overall, the process is a holistically better way to produce and witness live music. As an example, it is a known fact that hearing aids distort loud sounds. Just Jethro routinely makes believers out of folks who thought they would never be able to appreciate live music again because of clean, moderate volume presentation.

Lighting - 
Pre-programmed sequences operate an 18 fixture (LED) lighting system controlled by DMX-512 protocol. The colors are vibrant, rich, and digitally sequenced to make sense to the music being performed.

Promotion - 
Each appearance with a theme to make the event a reason to celebrate. From National Beer Day to St. Patrick's, there is a reason every day to appreciate life. This is the zest of Bavaria and Just Jethro channels that spirit in performances.  

In Conclusion -
When you're ready to take your event to the next level in an affordable manner, you're ready to get an act with the track record of live music performance designed to make your event the best it can be, you're ready for Just Jethro.
