Jump Castle Riot
Jump Castle Riot is a modern blues/rock band from Charleston, SC consisting of Nina Murchison (vocals), Jay Van Raalte (guitar/vocals), Bradley Palles (drums) and Derk Van Raalte (bass). The group has been described as having effortless chemistry and an explosive sound. “These kids have serious talent,” says Atlas Road Crew drummer Patrick Drohan. The Charleston music scene evidently agrees, having voted JCR the winners of five Charleston City Paper Music Awards, including Best Blues Band, Best Up and Coming Band, and Guitarist of the Year.
The band has been hard at work since forming in the fall of 2015. Appearances at the Pour House, Windjammer, Taste of Charleston festival, Charleston Music Hall, and The Royal American as well as a variety of bars, restaurants, and special events have put the band in front of thousands of people. Fortunately, they have been up to the task. As proven by their debut EP Glitter and Gold, this band has a sound that will stop traffic – or at least stop conversation in major bars in Charleston.
Jump Castle Riot hasn’t done this in a vacuum, of course. They credit growing up in the supportive, unique Charleston music scene as a major influence. This influence has given the members incredible opportunities to learn and play with a variety of folks, including members of The Travelin’ Kine, Atlas Road Crew, Stop Light Observations, Elise Testone, Drivin n Cryin, Hootie and the Blowfish, and blues legend Buddy Guy.
Word about the group is spreading quickly, bringing JCR to more venues more often. Join the Riot today!
