Local/Live: May 20 – Reynaldo Jenkins & the Teardrops


With an energetic live show and classic sounds inspired by doo wop and rockabilly, Reynaldo Jenkins & the Teardrops – lead by Joshua Kristopeit – is plenty full of swagger, playing to Roy Orbison’s croons, Jon Spencer’s strut and the Black Lips’ rowdy, devil-may-care attitude.

The group formed in 2010 and inspired Kristopeit to turn his garage into a recording studio, releasing three full-length CDs, two 7”s and singles, among other things. WMSE’s Local/Live is where you will hear a little bit of it all…

Tune in this Tuesday, May 20th for music by Reynaldo Jenkins & the Teardrops – WMSE.org or 91.7 FM at the 6 o’clock hour.

    I can’t wait to hear this broadcast tomorrow. And I want to publicly thank Reynaldo Jenkins and the Tear Drops for donating play time to my fundraiser for the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus in September. Such talented guys who are willing to help our local community.
