The Infamous Stringdusters
The Infamous Stringdusters
The Infamous Stringdusters are at the forefront of a new movement in bluegrass music. Their unmatched virtuosity has enabled them to take acoustic music to a completely new level. They wield an expansive repertoire touching on masters from Jimmy Martin to John Hartford, but their strength lies in their original compositions. Dedication to arrangements sets them apart and extended improvisation makes every performance completely unique. The live Stringdusters experience is anti-formulaic, groove friendly, and mind-expanding: not your granddaddy's bluegrass. Unless your granddaddy was Jerry Garcia.
JATOBA
JATOBA
Incorporating a unique blend of three extraordinary acoustic musicians, Jatoba redefines their sound through collective songwriting and extreme rhythmic improvisations. Through the Double Bass, Acoustic Guitars, Baritone Guitar, Mandolin, Sitar and harmonizing vocals, Jatoba displays a very eclectic arrangement of acoustic instrumentation. Jatoba is Jason Scaggs, John Jamison and Jeff Richardson.

The three members of Jatoba first came to play music together in a band based out of Keene, Hew Hampshire and since then have progressed individually and as a whole to create a truly unique style of music. Collectively the members of Jatoba have shared stages/bills with musicians and bands such as David Grisman, Rusted Root, Keller Williams, KRS One, Melvin Seals and JGB, Lettuce, Dupstafunk, Sage Francis, members of Dispatch, Lotus, RAQ, The Breakfast, The Ordinary Way and Deadwood Revival just to name a few.

The roots that Jatoba have planted will hold fast and continue to expand well beyond the aspirations that were founded in the beginning of Jatoba's life. Jatoba is a new beginning with no end in sight. Their music has and will continue to be praised by fans and musicians from all around the nation. With a strong start many people are on board to support an acoustic evolution which will hopefully bring Jatoba's music to the forefront of everyone's forehead.
