The Jammin Jan Band

Jammin Jan

Jan Lamb started playing young at age 12 at church on a big B-3 organ. She has a passion for playing music and it shows. Jan has played country, blues, jazz, funk, you name it..and in venues such as Santi-Cali-Gon and the Spirit Festival, BB's Lawnside BBQ and Blayney's. She played swing with the Twang Dang Poodles and funk with Platinum Express. Jan's love for music shines through with every song she sings and plays.

Phil Chairelli

Phil's musical background is extensive. He began playing guitar at a young age while living in Texas and, as such, his appreciation for country music runs deep. While attending high school in the Memphis area he learned the subtleties of playing rhythm and blues, soul and funk in great bands that featured wonderful horn sections. Then on to college in Kansas City playing good old rock and roll and, of course, his favorite, the blues. Phil is known for his smooth style, great tone, his vocal stylings and his affable personality.

How does the Jammin' Jan Band rank among his extensive studio and live playing experiences?

"I am having a ball playing in this group...It is a wonderful collection of folks who are not only some of the finest musicians I have ever worked but who are great friends as well. It shows in our approach to what we do..."

Jim Cavanagh

Jim Cavanagh was born in Hannibal, MO. His Mother was an old time Honkey Tonk Piano player who played roadhouses. There was always piano music in the house. At a Christmas party when he was five, a drummer let him sit at the drums, and he was hooked. Because his stepdad did not like noise, he was not permitted to play an instrument and at 18, when he went to college, he was finally able to start playing on a $100 set of Apollo drums.

After forty-eight years Jim is an accomplished drummer and lead and background vocalist. He plays Pearl Masters and Reference Drums, and is a devoted Jam-aholic. His influences are Mitch Mitchell, John Bonham, Danny Seraphine, David Garibaldi, Chris Fryar and Matt Abts.

Gary "Doc" Holub

Gary "Doc" Holub got his first drum set at the age of 2, and his love for music was born. Doc played drums all through grade school and high school but found his love for the bass guitar in college when he picked up his first bass in a pawn shop for $20. Many years and basses later, he still enjoys playing and performing. In the 38 years he's been in Kansas City, Gary has played bass for many bands, including Pokerface, which was a new country band that toured the midwest in the late 90's. In the last few years, Doc has played with FreeLance, The Road Rockets, and most recently Blue Plate Special, which included Phil Chiarelli and Jim Cavanagh, current members of the Jammin Jan Band. Doc enjoys playing with JJB and hopes to do so for a long, long time...

Ed Korte

Ed Korte - Sax, Vocals. Originally from St. Louis Ed has played in Soul and R&B "horn bands" since the mid 60's. Since moving to Kansas City in the late 70's, work included the "2/20" band, the Ed Korte band, and a couple of years on drums with The Secrets and Crawfish Pie. He has played Blues, Rock. Contemporary variety and country. He hooked up with Jammin' Jan in 2015 playing sax alongside trumpet player Lee Watkins. "Great bandmates/friends and good music. We have a lot of fun. What more could I ask for."

Lee Watkins

A veteran player in the style of classic horn bands, Lee brings a fat sound in the style of east coast show bands like Dallas Pike, along with his experience with Robinson Pike with Kevin Mahogany. Lee began playing at age ten, and even in his earliest years, began playing with local bands Blackwater Junction, Solar Eclipse and Goodtime Rebellion, that emulated the Motown sound and jazz rock groups like Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears. He studied at the Conservatory of Music at Kansas City with renowned teacher Bill Trumbauer, before taking his skills on the road to Nashville and the east coast.
