BIOGRAPHY

Come Back Alice is a genre defying high-energy Rock N Roll band from St. Petersburg, FL.

 

"Formed in 2012, Come Back Alice has a patently-unique sound that they've dubbed Southern Gypsy Funk, a blend of rock, soul, gypsy jazz and funk music, the flavors of which compliment each other like ingredients in a fine New Orleans gumbo. With improvisational influences and a love of bands known for killer live performances—including The Band, Dave Matthews, Tom Petty, and The Allman Brothers Band—even the biggest Come Back Alice fans don't know what to expect from show to show from a band that has never repeated a set list.” - Dennis Maley, The Bradenton Times

 

Fronted by multi-instrumentalist (and newly-weds) Tony Tyler and Dani Jaye, the connection witnessed onstage is impalpable. Switching between slide guitar, B3 organ, Violin, and keys, these two have a knack for captivating audiences with an electric stage presence one would come to expect from a truly organic Rock N Roll show.

 

A Georgia native, Tyler met Jaye shortly after moving to Florida to play with the late Dan Toler (Allman Brothers Band). The two stayed local for a short time, writing music and looking for players with dreams as big as their own. After meeting drummer Yral Morris in Sarasota, FL, they knew they had found the rhythmic core needed to take the sound to the next level. Morris, a Miami bred groove machine, honed his chops in the gospel churches of south Florida. With a style all his own, his dynamically powerful

approach on drumming makes him a perfect fit to an entirely unique band.

 

Within the last year, the band has added Percussionist Jimmy Rector. Prior to moving to Florida and meeting Tony and Dani while jamming around a campfire, Rector resided in rural Missouri and worked as a studio drummer that was known for pushing the bar with a wide array of musical projects of all different genres.

 

The band released their self-titled debut album in 2015, which recorded at award-winning Tree sound Studios in Atlanta, GA. The album was accompanied by a critically acclaimed music video for their single ‘Coraline.” The music video took home the gold by winning Music Video of the Year at the Los Angeles Gorilla Film Festival, “Coraline” was also nominated for an award at several other film festivals.

 

Having already performed in more than 10 states at some of the nations largest festivals and venues, Come Back Alice is taking the nation by storm. The band is currently in the process of producing a new studio album, set to be released in Summer 2017, alongside a career defying year of genre defying high-energy Rock N Roll performances.

“ Tony Tyler is a triple threat. His guitar is amazing, his Hammond B-3 work is stunning, and his singing puts him in a category with Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes. Amazing. Dani Jaye is a talented singer, tremendous guitar slinger and incredible violin player.” “ There was a vibe in the room, something special.” -Scott Hopkins (www.MusicFestNews.com) “...At times it felt more like a musical festival than a political rally. The band Come Back Alice played its song catalog and Beatles covers as attendees danced. The crowd sang Bern’ itup along with them and a slam poet compared Sanders to a Jedi Knight —or perhaps he meant a Jedi Master.” -Tampa Bay Times referencing the Bernie Sanders Political Rally in Tampa) “ Tampa Bay’s hottest Rock N Roll Band” -Advisor Magazine “ Come Back Alice will have your mind fall into their rabbit hold of funky eclectic original jams, while their onstage presence and vibe takes your body for a topsy-turvy ride. The crowd is always raging with this unique and exciting band; don’t miss them!” -Creative Loafing
