      What: Jive Coulis, rock 'n' roll

  • Jive Coulis was bringing its classic rock sound to the West Coast in a biodiesel bus from Boulder, Colo., when the band members ran out of money in Ashland and stayed.
    Jive Coulis' original songwriting, vintage clothes and in-your-face performances demonstrate the trio's passion for rock 'n' roll and performance art.
    "We want to rage the faces off this planet," says drummer Collin Braley.
    What exactly is Jive Coulis?
    "It's just sass," says vocalist and guitarist Eric Leadbetter. "We have attitude. We definitely like to have fun. We take the music really seriously, but everything else is taken really lightly."
    "Jive is just a cool word, like groove," says vocalist and bassist Jordan Mack, "and coulis is a French reduction sauce."
    "That's the thing about jive, is it has negative connotations and positive," says Leadbetter.
    Light and dark, good and bad are themes that pepper the band's music.
    "I don't want to write a homogenized kind of music where everything is the same feeling because that's not how life works," says Leadbetter. "Sometimes there is the lightness and sometimes there is the darkness."
