Green Jelly

Buffalo’s own favorite foam headed freaks are making their way back home! Green Jelly will perform their wildly outrageous rock show this Sunday (April 11) at Club Diablo. This show was supposed to happen last Halloween, but unforeseen circumstances forced the band to postpone their tour until spring. Their US tour began last month and won’t wind up until August on the Warped Tour. They are supporting their new CD “Musick To Insult Your Intelligence By.” These recordings were made some years ago with the band that recorded “Cereal Killer” and “333”, and was to be their third release. The line up has changed since then, except for Bill Manspeaker. But then again there have been over 250 band members who have come and gone, and sometimes returned, since 1981. This current line up includes Buffalo native Tony Ferro who has returned on drums. Tony was one of the early members of Green Jello. He played on the very first Jello recordings that became the “Let It Be” record. Of course, all of the Jelly Puppets and characters will be joining the humans on stage…the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, Marshall Staxx, Pinata Head and many more! This show also serves another purpose for Manspeaker. It is also his wedding reception. Earlier on Sunday, he and his beautiful girl, Brenna, will tie the knot at Niagara Falls. Performing the ceremony will be his uncle, Minister Big Wheelie of Big Wheelie and the Hubcaps! We’ll have to wait and see if he wears his Elvis suit. You see, showmanship runs in the family! Opening the 7pm show at Club Diablo will be Black Summer Suicide, Angry Soil and Kandid Theory.

  • The Show Was Sick !!!
    We had to pick up a car and move it to let the tour bus park, all the bands were great, but to top it all off with Green Jello made it a night that will go down in history for me.

    Bill Manspeaker had the quote of the show, “you know it’s a great show when the guy in the front row is covered in blood”.

    Thanks Bill, it’s just our scary way of telling ya how much we support ya.
