Jill Sharpe

Bio & Video

Jill Sharpe - Bio - Lead Vocals/Guitar, Songwriter, Band Leader

Jill Sharpe wrote her first song, and started her first band, at 14. At 16, her first gig was lead singer for a band called Toxic Shock she soon got her first guitar gig for a band called The Gumby’s, then started playing guitar and singing lead vocals with an all girl Power Pop band called Tiger Lily, opening for bands like The Ventures, The Bangles, Fear, and The Ramones. She played speed metal with Flesh Weapon, Glam with The Flame Throwers and Surf with more girl bands. Jill was an original member of the all girl swing band Queen Voodoo, based in LA, opening for BB King and the Neville Brothers, performing at the Big Time Blues Festival with Canned Heat, John Hammond and Clerence "Gatemouth" Brown, etc. as well as the Blue Café, House of Blues and more. Since becoming a more seasoned player, Miss Sharpe’s vocals have been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Ella Fitgerald, her guitar work has been compared to greats from T-Bone Walker to Carlos Santa and with the nickname “Jilly Hendrix” & "Peggy Lee of the Blues" you're probably getting the idea.

After relocating to Huntington Beach in the 90’s, it was time to start the Jill Sharpe Band. She moved Long Beach in 93 and began producing and recording with Wade Wilkinson (Sublime) and to this day remains the lone writer of all original material performed by the Band. Band Leader, Lead Guitarist, Lead Vocalist and producer, Jill Sharpe has been a mainstay on the Blues Scene for many, many years. This seemed the place to stay, and stay she has. 20 years later She’s still going strong and Lovin’ Every Minute of it! The Jill Sharpe Band has performed at the Doheny Blues Festival, House of Blues (LA), Mother’s Tavern, The Gig, The Little Red Rooster, Key Club, Cafe Boogaloo and Martini Blues just to name a few.

She's been big on the LA Beach scene since she started, along with being recognized on many local television programs featuring the Blues, Bernie Pearl's - Bluesbreak, local Blues Cooking show - "Cooking with Lenny", and HBO's "Women in Blues". The latest, just recorded last week "Something more than the Blues".

After touring as lead guitarist, for Joe Houston and the Defrosterz in both Canada and the United States, Jill came home to write, record and produce her own CD’s Take One, Swing it on Home & "Pet My Kitty". These are just a few of the many recordings Jill has kept herself involved in for the past 20 years. "Pet My Kitty" shows her growth as both guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. After years of accomplished recordings, performances and bands, Jill shows her stuff on "Pet My Kitty" with Speacial Guest Fred Kaplan (Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, Hollywood Fats, The Thunderbirds, etc, etc.) With an incredible blend of blues, swing, rock-a-billy and alternative, Jill pleases audiences from LA to Fargo, Vancouver to Austin.

Recently performing at the Zydeco Festival in Long Beach, The Big Fish Blues Festival and the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Ride - hosted by Mickey Jones) with 2000 Lbs of Blues and Divas Do The Blues 1st, 2nd and 3rd Annual Female Blues Festivals(hosted by Lisa Cee) and recording her newest material for the upcoming CD "Hot Sauce". It's always a busy and really fun schedule!

YEEEOWWWEEEE!!! WHAT A KILLER NITE FOR JAMMIN IT WAS !!!
Holy Ghost of the Great Pumpkin arises in the pumpkin patch to jammhisassoff at Ashley's Sunday Jam, "THE BEST DAMM JAMM IN THE WEST"!!...
Jammer & Co-Host MARK ST JOHN here!...Howdy Folks! Reviewin' and Previewin'!.......and welcome to fun times and enjoyment of your Sunday evening at Ashley's Bar & Grill !
OH MAN!.....And don't forget the grub here...OMG...& MMMMMMM....Killer Grub at Ashley's, owner MaryRose's menu is on the table so come on down for Sunday evening dinner, a few cocktails, 3 Big Screens with the latest games on, and some of the best rockin' blues music your ears EVER experienced....!! Oh yeah, there's a pool table too..!!
My Cusine Recommendation is: Try a CUP of the Chili Verde...mmm..it will tickle your tastebuds and fire up your tongue!! The best EVER....and only $3.50....wow....good price!
No Kidding, this is the REAL DEAL...!
Hope you get to hang out and experience it soon..!!

Someone recently emailed me to ask "what makes this the best jamm as advertised?"
My answer is very simple....
"because of the talented and interesting JAMMERS that come here to Jam...This jam is for and about YOU....!"

OUR MISSION STATEMENT FOR THE JAMM...!!!
This jamm is about the Jammers NOT the band...It's all for YOU, whether you are a player or in the audience, this jam is YOUR jam, YOUR workshop, for YOUR enjoyment and pleasure, for YOUR connection power and networking of musicians and music lovers!

IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU, THE JAMMERS....Hope you come and join in....!!!

On Oct 31st the Sunday nite Halloween Jamm at Ashley's was unbelievable!!
Host and guitarist/vocalist JILL SHARPE started the parade with some of her funky-bluesy compositions, accompianed by star jammers of the core band including bassist MARK ST JOHN, drummer MIKE HARVEY, young jammer guitarist MIKE KAHLIL, saxaphonist NEAL "the squeal" SHELTON and keyboardist LINZEE !

Later in the evening several local musicians including harmonica players
BLUHARP LOUIS & BOB COOPER, incredible sax player PAT ZICARI, a couple of jammer bassists, our pals RON GOLDBERG and PAUL DOMINGUEZ, and long-time 'Kansas city's Own' bassist/vocalist Sir STAN GRIGGS, who brought the house down with his version of "See See Rider"! Newcomer jammer guitarist J.C. who arrived sans the now defuct Blue Dog Jam got up to cut loose with everyone and was fantastic...thanx dude hope to see ya again...!
Here's another reason why we're the best jamm in the west: because of a new gal bassist TONYA WILLIAMS, who accidentally ended up at Ashley's, stated she hadn't played bass in 10yrs, then she got up there and rocked the blues with the rest of the gang!! And she Rocked...!! Very brave gal...gettin' up there with people she just met...after a long hiatus...!! Cool stuff for all you Jammers out there..!
Next Sunday nite we'll all be back to join in the parade of jammers and music lovers that show up EVERY week at Ashley's Sunday Nite blues jam, "THE BEST DAMM JAMM IN THE WEST !!"
And now you know the story....See ya there or be square....hahaha.....!!!!

This is an event hosted by the City of Long Beach. We played the event last year and it was just lovely. We're looking forward to the event again this year, with speakers like Assembly woman Bonnie Lowenthal, First Lady of Long Beach Nancy Foster, National Alliance for Mental Illness, United States Veterens Intiative, etc. I am a huge advocate for mental health that does not seem to be handles well in our country any longer, I advise all to care for, donate to and volunteer for any event that supports those in a more difficult situation that we're in. Thank you Patti LaPlace once again for extensing the invitation to the Jill Sharpe Band. We're honored. It's fun - food and live music at Recreation Park in the Band Shell. See you there!
