Jet Black Alley Cat

Nashville 5 piece Jet Back Alley Cat knows how to make a feel-good tune. Their pop-rock songs are infectious — perfect for the summer nights that are right around the corner. Their recent, “Miami Baby,” is an energetic ode to its namesake city, paying homage to Miami’s vibrant energy and youthful spirit. The track sets the tone for the band’s upcoming EP Motel, out May 25th. Fusing the soul of rock ‘n’ roll with the shinier side of pop, the band will tour the album in their home state of Tennessee in May before heading out to California.

Check out the video for “Miami Baby” below along with their Nashville picks:
