Loose and unscripted, free and maybe even a little unpredictable… That’s how we would describe Whitley Heights.
Jason Briggs, Jason Ferro, Mike DiPirro, Michael Faiella and James Foster are a group of friends who pride themselves on the ad hoc, unruly product that is Whitley Heights. They long to pay respect to history and tradition—to where music started, from the banjo to the mandolin to the standup bass.
This devout respect for tradition has even inspired them to begin a clothing line, founded by Whitley Heights members Jason Briggs and Jason Ferro. Named Jacob Davis USA, this denim line celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit that was Jacob Davis (inventor of riveted jeans).
Whitley Heights can be found Fridays at the Witzend in Venice, playing original tunes and wearing Jacob Davis. For further information visit: http://www.whitleyheightsmusic.com/
