A fifteen piece rag-tag group of New York's finest young musicians, Jesus On The Mainline has played to capacity crowds since their inception in late 2013. Led by GRAMMY-nominated musician Andrew Neesley, their music is reminiscent of The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, The Black Crowes, with a dash of Joe Cocker and Janis Joplin for good measure. Listen for their epic soul cover of Nirvana's "Lithium" and the striking original songs of Andrew Neesley and Tim Emmerick.

...they make a wonderfully raucous, gospel-tinged noise.
— John Schaefer, WYNC

“The brainchild of ... musician Andrew Neesley, Jesus On The Mainline is an expansive collective of players that craft an amalgam of joyful sounds” — Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal


“...singer Mel Flannery, whose raw, powerful, brassy alto and stratospheric harmonies ... were nothing short of spine-tingling.” — NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY
