Formed in late 2009, we consider ourselves more of a ”remake” band than a cover band that likes to put our own spin on songs to make them ”Tasty”. Mostly 70’s/80’s/90’s set lists, but we delve into other decades as well. We do a few sweet medleys and versions of familiar songs you won’t hear […]

A Tasty Jamm

Formed in late 2009, we consider ourselves more of a ”remake” band than a cover band that likes to put our own spin on songs to make them ”Tasty”. Mostly 70’s/80’s/90’s set lists, but we delve into other decades as well. We do a few sweet medleys and versions of familiar songs you won’t hear anywhere else. We can perform as a full band or as an acoustic quartet w/ our drummer playing a “Cajon” (wooden percussion box) instead of a drum kit, and we also have an electronic drum kit available for smaller venues. Our band features local radio personality and traffic reporter Robin Scott on lead vocals and harmonies. Rob and Robin have been performing together as a duo since 1994 and decided to add some great musicians to the group, what resulted is the band you see here. Our goal is to perform songs that we enjoy playing in hopes that the energy and passion will emotionally engage anyone who is listening. Come check us out, we don’t suck! Please support your live local music scene.

Boise’s Americana Sweethearts! Indie Alt Country Darlings!

  • For A Fool
  • Mess You Up
  • a.k.a. Belle

    Nicknamed ’Americana Sweethearts’ by weekly local arts & culture rag, The Boise Weekly, a.k.a. Belle are also commonly referred to as Boise’s ”Indie – Alt – Country Darlings” — certainly there is an edge to their Americana – roots rock n roll, as listening to their debut album, ”Disappearing Night” reveals.

    The album came out in late December 2011, spent several weeks in the Top 20 Best Sellers list at The Record Exchange and, in fact, ”Disappearing NIght” made it into the Ten Top Selling Local Albums of 2012!

    The track ”Austin Calling” continues to get airplay on the Treasure Valley’s largest commercial radio station, The River 94.9fm. a.k.a. Belle are highly championed by their morning host, Tim Johnstone, as well as being favorites of Carl Scheider, DJ at (NPR affiliated) KBSU. ”Living Room Radio,” a Friday afternoon show on 89.9fm Radio Boise, listed ’Disappearing Night’ as one of their top albums of the year.

    a.k.a. Belle formed in 2008, after Catherine Crooks Merrick (vocals, guitars, banjo) returned home to Boise after several years of living and performing under the moniker Belle
    of Les Bois in Manchester, England. She recruited long time accomplice Sam Merrick to play guitar (ex-Hillfolk Noir, The Nymphs, The Leaving Trains). (Yes, they are married.)

    No strangers to the music business, each has worked with or supported some famous names (Curtis Stigers; Bill Kirchen; Doug Martsch from Built to Spill; John Doe & Exene Cervenka from LA band X; Iggy Pop; Elizabeth Cook; Holly Golightly, Lydia Loveless…just to name a few)

    Current live shows feature Louis McFarland on percussion and Chris Galli on stand up bass; and Kayleigh Jack on violin, vocals and guitar.

    Sam and Catherine recently appeared on Boise Song Talk, a local television series showcasing local songwriters who discuss their craft/ songwriting with host James Coberly Smith. http://boisesongtalk.com/

    Christmas 2010’s Moxie Java local artist/band compilation includes a.k.a. Belle’s holiday hit, “I’m Giving Mice Elf to You” which has been on permanent rotation on The River’s Morning Show every Christmas since its release.

    ”For a Fool,” was the inspiration for a stop motion painting/animation video by Boise artist, Shasta Nash. Shasta used the acoustic version of the song (written & recorded in England), which was shown at the 2011 ”208 Music Video Show” and took 1st prize.

    The band also took part in a pilot series hosted by John Doe called ”American Music.” a.k.a. Belle served as his backing band (with Catherine duetting) on several songs. http://www.wideeye.tv/original_programming.html

    Work on their 2nd album (working title ’The Devil Loves You’), has begun at AudioLab Recording Studios, and the band anticipate its release sometime this spring. The direction is slightly darker, including themes of time travel and urban myths about a serial killer who lives in Boise’s foothills.

    For the past five or so years, I have been able to make a living on music in Boise. I have played acoustic 50’s, 60’s and 70’s music for geriatric facilities. Lots of interesting personalities, especially in the Memory Care Unit. I believe playing in bars is fun for a musical purpose it is mediocre at best. I believe music affects us biologically in a way that regresses disease. I will head to New Orleans at the end of the summer for a Music Therapy degree, but until then I am looking to gig. Sometimes my friends like to come along too.
