Asphalt Ballet is an American rock band formed in San Diego, California.[1][2] Their style is rooted in blues rock and incorporates elements of hard rock and Southern rock.[2] The band consists of vocalist Gary Jeffries, bassist Terry Phillips, drummer Mikki Kiner, and guitarists Danny Clarke and Julius J. Ulrich.[1][2] at this point the status of the band is unknown. Garry Jeffries fronts the Gary Jeffries band. Recently he was asked about a reunion with his former band mates and said I wouldn't be opposed to it but man I haven't talked to them guys in about 20 years. There my space is no longer avable. Gary Jeffries can be found on Facebook and will answer questions.

History[edit]

Virgin Records signed the band and released their self-titled debut album in 1991.[1] Jeffries left due to pressure from the label to change their style to sound more like grunge.[2] Their second album, Pigs, was released in 1993 with Tommy Dean on lead vocals.[1] The band split up shortly after the release of Pigs.[1]

Information about recording new material is on the band's MySpace page. There are long periods between updates on the page with the last in February 2011.[3]
