About
Jelly Roll

Jelly Roll has been together since 1981. 

Formally known as the Jelly Roll Blues Band, and more formally the Jelly Roll Morton Memorial Blues Band, Jelly Roll grew organically out of “lively” open mic nights at the City Park Grill (at the time called Park Garden Café) in the late 70’s. Today, we are still playing and celebrated as shaping Northern Michigan’s live music scene.

Maybe you caught us in the 80’s and 90s when we were the house band at the Sportsman in Boyne City, or at the Snowflake Lounge at Boyne Mountain, or Highlands… or maybe you caught us during the 30 plus years we played Sunday nights out at Legs Inn in Cross Village? ... Let’s not forget Horns Bar during the yacht races on Mackinac! So many gigs we can’t remember.  

Currently, members include Johnny Storm (guitar) and Bob Crosser (bass) who have been here since the beginning, Bill Riesenbeck (Drummer) replaced Gram Fineout in the 80’s and Kenny Mustang (Piano/Organ) replaced Craig Stadtmiller St), and Tony Sasso (singer/congas) who played with Johnny Storm in a band prior to Jelly Roll.

Other members during that formidable time include Marty Ward, Newt Cole, and Patty McPeak. After Craig’s retirement, the band performed for 5 years or so as a 3 piece before bringing in Kenny Mustang on Keys (Incidentally, Kenny took piano lessons from Stadtmiller in the 80’s).
