Christabel & the Jons are currently on tour promoting their new CD “Custom Made for You”. This album beautifully illustrates their growth from a folky, honky-tonk band to an old-time swing band. The group saunters and sways together with ease. Their music blends multiple musical styles from gypsy jazz to country blues. Lead singer Christa DeCicco enchants audiences with her expressive lyrical style and laid back, sultry stage performance. Old suitcases and dressy vintage costumes from the 1920s-1950s give the performance a torch singer, speakeasy feel. They can often be found in thrift stores as they travel from town to town, hunting for clip-on ties and cocktail dresses.
CB&J has been performing their distinctive style of folky swing since the spring of 2005. They released their first full-length album, "Love and Circumstances” in November of 2006. Their second and most recent album, "Custom Made For You," was released on December 12th, 2008.
In addition to headlining many shows, Christabel and the Jons has also performed at numerous festivals in the US including Bonnaroo, Riverbend, Bele Chere, Blue Plum Festival, Shakori Hills Festival, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, and Sundown in the City. They've also opened for many national acts including The Brazilian Girls, The Be Good Tanyas, The Red Stick Ramblers, and Loudon Wainwright.
