Jeffery “Jellybean” Alexander plays drums in Papa Grows Funk Band.
Papa Grows Funk is a funk band from New Orleans, Louisiana. The band was started by frontman John “Papa” Gros in early 2000, developing from a series of Monday night jam sessions helmed by Gros at New Orleans Maple Leaf Bar. Gros would invite some friends down to play, and the impromptu jams became a common bond for a handful of musicians, including guitarist June Yamagishi, sax player Jason Mingledorf, bassist Marc Pero and drummer Jeffery “Jellybean” Alexander, who now make up Papa Grows Funk.
