It's Super Bowl week here in Baltimore and good vibrations abound around town in a way we we only get to enjoy when our beloved birds are rolling through their competition, in spite of what the critics predict. That's why I wanted to take today to share this hometown gem entitled Baltimore Rap from friends of the Dig PB&Jamz.
PB&Jamz are Paul Diem, Jeremy Durkin, Britt Olsen-Ecker, Aldo Pantoja, and Melissa Wimbish. In their own words:
PB&Jamz was birthed from The Valentonez, Baltimore’s only singing Valentine troupe. In February of 2012, the Valentonez delivered singing Valentine grams for sweethearts and friends.
The original band was formed during the show ‘Linus & Alora’ at the Single Carrot Theatre. Since it’s conception in 2011, PB&Jamz has morphed into Baltimore’s premiere cover band.
Baltimore Rap from PB&Jamz is an infectious celebration of the city's highs, lows, quirks, pitfalls, and Berger cookies. There is something relatable in this song for every Baltimorean from Dundalk to Charles Village, Locust Point to Roland Park, and everywhere in between. I dare you not to turn it up and sing along. It's OK, really. You don't have to be ashamed, cautious, or in anyway reserved. PB&Jamz is a juggernaut of feel good Balti-mania. You're welcome.
