JSB seeks that musical and emotive sweet spot between rock’s psychedelic swagger and the realness of the honest lyricism of John Spignesi’s songwriting. The New Haven based trio is: vocalist and songwriter John “Spigs” Spignesi on guitar, with Joe Jeffery (bass) and Matt Alling (drums). Together they hang out, genre-wise, at the more rocking side of the New England regional Jam Band festival and club gig scene, and like to consider what they share as “Music For Your Soul.” Since their formation, the band has released recordings from full studio albums to fun one-off releases like their Halloween take on Edgar Allan Poe’s, “The Raven.” With hundreds of gigs under their belts, the band has had breakout performances at Strange Creek Campout, as well as the iconic Yasgur’s Farm in Bethel NY, where they celebrated the 50th anniversary of Woodstock.
