JACK+JILL is a Colorado based Indie/Alternative Band.Their music blends dark grungy male and rich female vocals with big chunky guitars, and semi-sweet electric violin. The shows you will see will take you on a musical, toe-tappin', head banging, magical booty shaking journey of epic proportions.
Aaron Seibert (Jack): Guitars & Vocals, and wife Jessica Seibert (Jill): Violins & Vocals, have been performing as JACK+JILL since their marriage in the summer of 2007. Having great success as a two piece, they decided to incorporate other musicians to play at bigger shows and events… And the success is climbing further. They are now an eclectic blend of 4 amazing musicians.
JACK+JILL is a fun loving, high energy Indie/Alternative Band whose musical sounds and silences will rock your face off! They are proud to perform with Mike Thornburg: Drums & Alt. percussion, and B Braukhoff: Bass & Vocals. JACK+JILL have had the privilege of performing all over the west at many venues and large festivals, scoring slots on the bill with big names such as: Everclear, Eve6, Yonder Mountain String Band, Slightly Stoopid, Godsmack, Loverboy, Fuel, Chris Cagle, Zelazowa, Saliva, Del the Funky Homosapien, Great White, Days of the New, Sebastian Bach, Pretty Lights, Twisted Sister, Default, Rodger Clyne and the Peacemakers, Skillet, and countless "Hometown Heros". The couple even managed to perform in the MSU chamber choir in Carnegie Hall! The shows you will see them perform are just as versatile as the bands listed above. Their performances range from full on rock concerts with intricate & danceable drum beats, big melodic bass lines, lyrical electric violin leads, colorful keyboard licks and soaring vocals harmonies. Then way down to "soft sets" that may (or may not) taper member numbers down to create an almost coffee shop acoustic jam feel that leaves you begging for more.
Since 2007 they have made 2 albums: “Into the Open” (2009), and “Brightest Star in the Nightmare” (2011). Into the Open has had much success since its release in May of 2009. Once added on the bands official press kit, it landed them over 250 independently booked gigs in Colorado, Montana, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, and California! As well as making the front page news, they've had multiple interviews and write ups in the local press and papers directly related to its success. A pretty large feat considering they also made 2 kids in that time too! The latest album "Brightest Star in the Nightmare" is a very versatile album, and has been a huge hit with its exciting collage of styles, colors, and musical textures. It is an eclectic, modern taste of 90's alternative/jam band and progressive rock that features alternating tempos and time signatures plus gripping psychedelic overtones. They have radio friendly songs like “Overplay Me“, “Brightest Star in the Nightmare” and “5ifty4our“, to alternative progressive rock like “Patience” and “Alzheimers”. This disc is a musical mind melter.
What stands them apart from other bands? Electric Violin with overdrive and wah pedals, tight 2and 3 part harmonies, the fact that they are able to please ma, pa, and teenager? Or is it more simply their ability to blend genres of pretty much any kind... Maybe it just sounds right. Most of them have been to school for music and have had opportunities to perform and create in styles like jazz, blues, classical, folk, and rock. You name it they have a song that style. Pretty neat!
All this being said- fans who loved their first album will appreciate how JACK+JILL still preserve their acoustic roots. The band's melodies and lyrics, always heartfelt in their simplicity will surely leave their mark in your soul. JACK+JILL is a band that will stand the test of time, based in family ties, they are here to stay. Founded in Grand Junction they practice, write, and record in their home, out west, in the high desert of Colorado. They will be a band to recognize, to receive and to remember.
