Howlin' Poets featuring Orange Jam were formed in 2018 as a spin-off combination of the two bands with the same goal -- TO MAKE ROCK AND MAKE IT FUNKY!! The original Howlin' Poets was formed as The Relations (later The Disciples) at Seton Hall University in the early 1990s. The group had several well-received songs and recording projects and performed at Obsessions, Danceteria, Connections, the Feedbag, Escapades, CB's Gallery. However, several personnel changes would find Kyle and Will scrambling to find replacements for over the 20+ year existence of the band. As the band moved into 2018 and former members moved on, Will introduced Kyle to some musicians and friends who had appeared and performed at his summer live music barbecue, Walshapoloozastock. These musicians formed the nucleus of ORANGE JAM, a funky collective of musicians which started out as a weekly get together for local musicians, playing almost every genre imaginable, and developed into a more coherent band focused on funk and funky takes of classic reggae, rock, R&B, and disco tunes, with the occasional original thrown in to boot.
