Bruce Ellison began as a mime and voice-over for television, as well as in musical comedies in Indiana, USA. In 1986, after attending the Marcel Marceau International Mime School in Paris, Bruce founds the Mandragore Theatre Co. with Michel Carcan in Brussels. The troup creates the mimodrama, 'The Strange Mr. Knight', to international acclaim. Currently Bruce does voice work for radio, cinema, and children's tv programs. He is also the singer of rock group PPZ30. With The Jellodies, Bruce Ellison is certainly the best tribute to the wonderful Thomas « Fats » Waller
The Jellodies combines swing, jive, hot jazz and rhythm n blues, with a lineup similar to Coles trio, Basies rhythm section, or Willie Dixons Big Three Trio.
If you want to hear real hot jazz and swing the way it was played in the 30's and 40's, this band is what it's all about! Come and discover their unique groove! The alchemy which rises from the meeting between Bruce Ellison and The Jellodies is absolutely magic..!
