All Marbles is a highly intriguing, completely original, fresh new addition to the improvisational rock scene. Eric "Bones" Parkes and Jayson Schell, both classically trained guitarists, first met at music school attending the University of Redlands California. There Jayson studied classical and jazz and Eric delved heavily into improvisational rock. They soon hooked up with drummer Raul Salazar, who had previously been playing in the raging Ska/Reggae scene, playing on bills with bands like Sublime and The Skeletones. After a year or two of cycling through bass players, yet creating a new inventive foundation of sound, they finally found the final member to their creation, bassist Philip Meilke. All Marbles is a buffet, if you will, of songwriters. Each brings their own styles and tastes to the table. Eric's songs, equipped with epic jams, have a distinct Southern Classic Rock sound, where as Phillip brings a newer Indie/blues feel to their songs. Finally Jayson, writing everything from bouncy, danceable tunes, to head rocking guitar songs, will always lighten up a set and get people moving. For the past five years All Marbles has concentrated mainly on perfecting their live stage performance, in the fashion of old and current jam bands, like The Grateful Dead, Phish, Govmt Mule, and moe. They did sporadic studio recordings working with all kinds of Southern California's most talented sound engineers. Then they teamed up with Rivercidal Records who just released their first full length self titled album, which has been flying off the shelves and creating a deafening buzz. They plan to release a live album in the upcoming year. All Marbles is looking forward to hitting the road and seeing all their fans joining them in their journey to the center of rock and roll, and will leave no venue unjammed.
