Jamarca is a versatile three piece band based in North Dorset.
"This funk groove trio are right up our street. Local talent with an easy going but tight, bright sound and the intuition to pick up and move with their audiences' vibe." John Morgan, Angola '76
As well as playing original material we add our own slant to well known and recent pop/rock covers.
We can adapt to any situation. With full drum kit and electric guitars for big parties, or cajon and acoustic guitar for more low key events or small venues.
- Marcus Tettmar: guitar and vox
- Bill Leivers: bass and vox
- Sven Thomas: drums, cajon and percussion
We're all seasoned musicians and have played together for several years, sharing a love of music from all kinds of genres.
We have our own PA and lighting.
Late last year (2021) we wished a fond farewell to founding member and bass player Dave Gordon as he and his family moved away from the area. Dave wrote a number of our tunes and has writing credits on most others. He will be missed but we're quite sure we will jam together again one day.
However, in the mean tie we are pleased to be joined by Bill Leivers on bass, and upright, and the journey continues.
We have a few gigs booked this summer and have alreaady made it into the studio to record some new and some old tracks. Please check them out here.
