Brought together in the Classic City – Athens, GA – Sumilan pays homage to influential music pillars with creative twists and dodges classification with dedicated experimentation. The Georgia-grown group intermingles elements of Ambient to Hard Rock, Jazz to Funky Reggae and is loyal to their meticulous-jam philosophy. Together they seamlessly mesh these styles through exotic guitar riffs, stomach pumping bass lines, skin tight drumming, and suave piano play to complete the puzzle. Energetic and clean performances are telling of intuitive chemistry that is fun to see up close. These combinations produce a sound that remains relative in a business so watered down. Sumilan’s expanding catalog pleases the ear, revives passion for rock ‘n roll and keeps the head bobbing.
With over one hundred shows played in their first two years of touring, several New England festival appearances (ie. StrangeCreek, Camp Coldbrook, Heads in Harmony) and two Southern tours under their belt — The Jauntee has quickly made a name for themselves in the New England Jam Band scene.
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 — A focus on set list variety and musical exploration promises every show to be a unique experience, truly making The Jauntee a live act to see again and again.
