The Starjays are a dual vocal rockin' 40's and 50's rhythm and blues act. Piano, sax, guitar, upright bass, and drums round out this excellent combo.
Angela and Roy have been singing together for years, but despite their mutual love of rhythm and blues they hadn't performed together in that style. When Roy was invited to perform a set of rhythm & blues at Italy's Summer Jamboree and Angela put together an R&B set for KEXP's 20th Annual Shake the Shack Rockabilly Ball, this pair decided to join forces and form their own rockin' R&B band, The Starjays.
Taking influence from Ruth Brown, Etta James, Irma Thomas, Roy Brown, Wynonie Harris & Little Richard they create their own style and unique sound. They have already played both the 2014 and 2016 Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekenders.
The Starjays are: Angelatini, vocals; Roy Kay, vocals/guitar; Carl Sonny Leyland, piano; Tony LaBorie, upright bass; Marshall Scott Warner, drums; Sean Jensen, saxophone and Mike Geglia, guitar.
The Starjays currently have a 4 song EP of original songs available on green, blue or pink vinyl 45 (which includes a digital download) released on LurLiner Records.
Their first full-length CD, Bang! It’s the Starjays, was released on Rhythm Bomb Records at Viva Las Vegas #19 in 2016. Recorded at Madrona Ranch in Seattle, and engineered by Roy Kay, Bang! It’s The Starjays features 12 original songs and 2 covers and is guaranteed to get you dancing!
