Wham, bam! Strawbury Jam

Modern Country with a little bit of R&R

Mike and Jenn met while playing in a classic rock band.  Having played in many bands throughout the years, they both wanted to play country music and had very clear ideas of how they would like to run a band.  Neither had the time to tackle the task on their own so Strawbury Jam was created as a partnership using the unique talents and skills of each to launch one of the best modern country bands in Indiana.

MIKE CHRISTEN

BAND CO-OWNER AND DRUMMER

Mike knew he wanted to play professionally after drumming for his high school's production of Music Man!  His parents knew they were in Trouble, which starts with a "T", and that rhymes with "D" and that stands for DRUMS!  He began with Midlife Crisis - the band, not the real thing, and quickly realized that classic rock was his wheelhouse. Mike later moved on to play with some great bands that include Little Eddie and the Fossils, Paige 6, Six Figures, The Echo Station and Full Tilt.

JENN MOE

BAND CO-OWNER, LEAD VOCALIST

Jenn's love of music sprouted from an eclectic mix of  Broadway music, Motown, Rat Pack Cocktail Jazz and even some Bluegrass that her parents listened to! The Five Easy Pieces were the first to hire Jenn as a lead vocalist performing genres ranging from jazz to disco.   Professionally, Jenn has since sung for a variety of bands covering many genres - The Cool Chiles (Latin/TexMex Orchestral band), Airstream Betty (Country), The Tides (Variety), Dwight Lightning and the Conch City All Stars (Island Rock), Cruise Control (Yacht Rock) and Full Tilt (Classic Rock).

BLAKE MILLER

Lead Guitarist

Blake has been touring and recording for the better part of 16 years and continues working locally as a full-time musician. He is so country, that he'd only play Johnny Cash if the rest of the band would cooperate (which we won't!). With a blazing guitar style and a decent sense of humor, Blake looks forward to being the Strawbury to this Jam. 

BASS GUITARIST

JOSIAH BRYAN

GUITARTIST / VOCALIST

After graduating from IUPUI with a degree in Economics and Political Science, Josiah hit the road with the Jake Gill Band (much to his parents dismay) touring the US for a year before returning to Indianapolis to begin Adulting AND joining Strawbury Jam.
