Christabel & the Jons is currently on tour from Louisiana to Maine and everywhere in between, promoting their album “Custom Made for You” and singing a bunch of new bossa nova and country swing tunes which will soon be recorded on their third CD, "The Same Mistake." Lead singer and songwriter Christa DeCicco is earning a reputation as one of the southeast's finest laid-back jazz singers. Old suitcases and vintage clothes from the 1920s-1950s give the performance a nostalgic ambiance, but it's the songs that really captivate. 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, The Wilders, and Loudon Wainwright.
