Declared “Heir to the (Phish) Throne” by JamBands.com in 2013 – The Jauntee has quickly made a name for themselves in the New England music scene. Hailing from Boston, they’ve solidified a dedicated following in the Northeast, playing most staple venues in the area (ie. Paradise Rock Club, Nectar’s, The Spot Underground, Stone Church). Several New England festival appearances (ie. StrangeCreek, Camp Coldbrook, Disc Jam) and extensive touring down the East Coast and across the Midwest have given them Nationwide recognition, with sold out shows as far west as Denver, CO (Quixote’s). A focus on live improvisation, set list variety, and musical exploration makes every show different from the last, truly making The Jauntee a live act to see again and again.
Drawing influence from a wide variety of bands, The Jauntee’s improvisational landscape spans multiple genres, including: Funk/Rock/Jazz/Progressive/Bluegrass/Psychedelic and Ambient music. Their willingness to explore genres, abandon all song structure, and dive into ‘the weird’ sets them apart from your average upcoming Jam Band. They aim to push the boundaries of improvisation, embrace the moment and engage the audience. With an ever-expanding song catalog and an inclination for open ended improvisation, every show promises to be a unique experience.
The band consists of Adrian Ciucci (guitar/vocals), Tommy Booker (keys/vocals), Raphael Katchinoff (drums/vocals), and Andrew Carper (bass/vocals). The band formed in 2010 and since then has been growing exponentially. The Southern Belles hold residencies across the state of Virginia in Charlottesville, Herndon, and our hometown of Richmond, and we have toured the East Coast from Georgia to Vermont. In 2012 we recorded our debut album "Sharp As A Knife". We have also played a seemingly countless number of music festivals in our area. This year we are adding Floyd Fest and Some Kind of Jam to that list. The Southern Belles have shared the stage with the likes of Anders Osborne, Moon Taxi, Keller Williams, Toubab Krewe, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, Zach Deputy, and more. Currently The Southern Belles are touring the East Coast and working on new material for our next album.
