Biography

Jellybean Johnson is the the drummer of the Prince created band The Time. Jellybean is one of the architects of a unique blend of music that was created in Minnesota and called the Minneapolis Sound. Jellybean’s resume includes drummer/guitarist/writer/engineer/producer for both local and national talent including creating a number one pop song for Janet Jackson, “Black Cat.” Billboard’s Critic’s Picks ranked “Black Cat” as Janet Jackson’s best song of all time in 2017.

In 1980 Prince united members of Flyte Tyme, of which Jellybean was a member, and Grand Central to form the band, The Time. Jellybean has been their drummer ever since. The Time toured with Prince and went on to be the rival band in the film “Purple Rain”. Prince also formed a band called The Family using Jellybean as its drummer yet again.

Jellybean also wrote, produced and played on many songs by nationally known artists during his time at Flyte Tyme Studios in Minneapolis including Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendryx, New Edition, Alexander O’Neal, Mint Condition, and the Human League.

The Jellybean Johnson Experience put out a single in 2018 called “Put Some Jelly On It’ and released another “Let Me Shine On” in 2019. Jellybean is the recipient of twenty Gold and Platinum albums, Music Awards, and ASCAP Awards. In 2014 he was honored for his long time work as a drummer with a special Local Legends Award.
