We are Jjaru, a four-member band from Sheboygan, WI, known for creative arrangements of a diverse mix of pop, rock, folk-rock, and blues music, from the 1960s through today. Each member of the band has been performing in some realm for more than twenty years, and all have brought their own style, musical taste, love for performing, and quality musicianship together to form this unique group in 2016. We do not fit into any specific genre as we cover all types, and are not your typical cover band! Inspired by music of all eras and genres including The Beatles, Cranberries, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, BoDeans, Indigo Girls, Annie Lennox, Sheryl Crow, Nora Jones, KT Tunstall, Ed Sheeran, P!nk, Audra Mae, and many, many more!


Jjaru features Ann and Rhonda on lead vocals, keys and bass; Jeff on soaring guitar improv, solos, and riffs; and John on creative rhythms with his unique percussion set-up.  We create arrangements of the songs you love, but don't hear out all the time!  We can adapt our equipment to fit any setting for your special event, venue, or staging needs.


Check out the MUSIC link on our webpage for our latest song list repertoire as well as audio demo tracks from our LIVE demo CD! We have played in the surrounding area, ranging anywhere from small spaces and private parties, to local wine bars, wineries, breweries, pubs, restaurants, benefit events, and large outdoor festivals.

We would love to share our music with you, or create a new arrangement of your favorite song for your special event. Message us and let us know, we'd love to hear from you!

Our rates are flexible and negotiable to meet your budget needs. Contact us for more information, rates, and availability via Facebook message: phone: 920-980-2139, or send us an email:
