OVER ONE MILLION SOLD! 32 YEARS AND 416 BAND MEMBERS LATER GREEN JELLY STILL SUCKS.... Green Jellÿ (pronounced "green jello") was formed in 1981 in Kenmore, NY by founding member Bill Manspeaker. Throughout the early 80’s, Green Jellÿ performed throughout NY, opening for bands like The Ramones and New York Dolls. Their reputation for over-the-top live performances and food-hurling audiences got them banned from most local venues. In 1992, Zoo Entertainment, a subsidiary of BMG, released Green Jellÿ’s “Cereal Killer,” an all video album including MTV hit, “The Three Little Pigs.” The following year, Zoo released an audio version of the album called, “Cereal Killer Soundtrack.” This album went gold in the US, and sold nearly 2.5 million units worldwide. The success led BMG to open Green Jellÿ studios in Hollywood, where the band recorded Grammy nominated, “333.” “333” includes “The Bear Song” from the Farrelly Brothers’ film, Dumb and Dumber. In the following years, Green Jellÿ continued to break the mold as they wrote the first ever video game soundtrack for Acclaim Entertainment video game, Spider Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage. Green Jellÿ takes the stage at Florida Supercon on Sunday July 7, 2013 for a show of EPIC proportions!
