The Jelly Jam is a power trio consisting of (left to right) Dream Theater’s John Myung, guitarist Ty Tabor of King’s X, and Dixie Dregs drummer Rod Morgenstein.

This PG exclusive shows new, behind-the-scenes studio footage of the prog-rock supergroup featuring Ty Tabor (King's X), Rod Morgentstein (Dixie Dregs, Winger), and John Myung (Dream Theater).

Trios rarely come as pedigreed as the Jelly Jam, which is comprised of bona fide progressive-rock royalty: King’s X guitarist-vocalist Ty Tabor, Dream Theater bassist John Myung, and Dixie Dregs/Winger drummer Rod Morgenstein. Since forming 14 years ago, the heavyweight collective has issued three enthusiastically received albums (2002’s The Jelly Jam, 2004’s The Jelly Jam 2, and Shall We Descend circa 2011), and on May 27 they return with their fourth release, Profit.

Belying their moniker, the Jelly Jam don’t trade in elongated jams. Rather, they specialize in a remarkably sophisticated and tuneful hybrid of classic and alternative rock, with Myung and Morgenstein powering the kind of earth-moving grooves that allow Tabor’s majestic vocal harmonies and widescreen guitar hooks to sail.
