Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents inadvertently make Rumble history!!

Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents are the only band in the 32- year history of The Rock n’ Roll Rumble to win our Preliminary night and NOT advance to the Semi-Finals.

In an unfortunate turn, we regretfully will not be participating in the Rumble Semi-Finals this Friday night, due to a pre-existing conflict with a gig that was booked in the fall of 2010 for the very same night (Friday, April 15th).

Even though the Semi-Finals are being held both Thursday night (the 14th) and Friday night (the 15th), The Rumble decided they could not accommodate Jenny Dee in the Thursday night Semi-Final because of certain rules pertaining to the event.

Rather than cancel a gig last minute, we have decided to withdraw from The Rumble. As much as we would have loved to kick John Powhida’s ass, we’ll let someone else do the honors. Some people are winners, and some people like fried scallops.

We will be playing the long-planned Opening Night at Captain Carlo’s in Gloucester on Friday night starting at 9pm.

Jenny Dee Wins Night #1 of the Rock & Roll Rumble!

After stellar sets from The Blizzard of 78, Old Jack, and McAlister Drive, Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents were extremely lucky and proud to win Night #1 of the preliminary round of The Rock and Roll Rumble last Sunday at T.T. The Bear’s.   Check out a video from the show below:

The Dees will face some stiff competition in the Semifinals from Night #2 Winner Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys and from Night #3 Winner The John Powhida International Airport.

The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, The Boston Phoenix, and Boston Band Crush have been covering the each night of The Rumble, and you can read their picks for the Semifinals which will be held next Thursday and Friday (April 14th and 15th) at T.T.’s.  Stay tuned for set times!  And just in time for the Semifinals, check out Sara Brown’s profile of The Deelinquents in this month’s Performer Magazine.

Wish us luck, and see you there!
