Jamie Register: Full force

Posted By on Tue, Aug 4, 2009 at 2:35 PM

What do you get when you cross a DJ who loves classic rock like Jimi Hendrix as much as spaced-out jazz with a vocalist mother who loves Motown? Mix well and add a few of the funkiest white boys around, and — if you’re lucky — you get Jamie Register & the Glendales.

The Ann Arbor-based funk & soul band celebrated the release of its new EP, Work It Out (Tang Records), at Cliff Bell’s in Detroit this past Friday, July 31. The band jammed two sets in front of a packed crowd, which sang along and danced in the aisles. Cliff Bell’s stage is probably too small to contain all of Register's energy. Whether she's playing guitar, banging a tambourine or just doing it solo on the piano, she's a full force.

New jams such as “This is War,” “You Sweet You” and a hot remix mashup of Sade and the Steve Miller Band — entitled “Taboo Fly” — kept the momentum going the entire night, as did such previous group efforts as “I Wish”, “Don’t Mean a Thing (Because You Lied)” and “Super Ego” (the latter spotlighting Glendales guitarist-vocalist Mike Boid.

The band has been playing the metro Detroit area this summer to promote the new release. Following a few more Ann Arbor dates, they head to Chicago for a show in September. Work It Out by Jamie Register and the Glendales is available at www.itunes.com and amazon.com. You can also check out the music at the band's MySpace page. Lorena M.Craighead, MT editorial intern
