This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



Gem City tends to shake things up (arguably for the better).


Founded in 2012, the band started as a group of Dayton students who shared a love of funk, jazz, and all that grooves.  The outfit was initially intended only to be a temporary project, but as the sound evolved from a quirky jazz-rock mess into a two-fisted, booty-bumping force of funk, the guys came to their senses.  They decided to stick together and play on.


The band manages to stay pretty busy.  From seedy bars to crowded music festivals, Gem City spreads its funk wherever it goes.  Summers 2013 and ’14 saw them playing in the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, and they have also performed at major shows like 2013’s Downtown Dayton Revival and the Exit 0 Jazz Festival in Cape May, New Jersey.


These days, Gem City continues to grind out new material.   In 2014, their debut album, “REDUX”, will be released by independent label, Only WonderUs.  The band plans to release new music frequently so stay tuned if you find yourself in need of a funk, rock, and R&B fix.
