“In this the thirtieth year of Phish I declare their successor to be The Jauntee. Going through the details it will appear they share traits with many bands who’ve used Phish as a template in much the same way as a plethora of legends used Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry in the 60s and 70s. So what is different about this group of young men from Boston? What do they have that others lack? Is it the infamous X-factor so many of us critics are always going on and on about? Has Caton Sollenberger found the secret fifteen-foot-pedal signal-path that leads to the land of milk and honey? Did Trey Anastasio leave his hose in a cab somewhere and Sollenberger was lucky enough to be the next passenger? Did Scott Ferber Hamlet Tony William’s grave to find not just a skull but William’s soul in a box? Can “Hamlet” really be used as a verb?Of the latter I know not, but of the former questions—and the BIG question—I put forth a reluctant “I don’t know.” I don’t know why the Jauntee”

“I arrived to The Middle East Upstairs a few songs into The Jauntee’s set. Playing to a warm room of their young fans, The Jauntee displayed that they can play a lot of notes, enough to swivel anyone that is digging down the rabbit hole. Their genre is identifiable as a jam band, but for a jam band, their songs are rhythmically diverse. The laid back quartet brought the mood up and down with melodic and chaotic melodies over steady and hypnotic rhythms. Their loyal, young fans literally orgasmed for certain tunes chanting, “Roses, Roses!” at the end of their set. The Jauntee finished their set up with a tune that was recently recorded for Relics Magazine, and then I made my way to chill in the Middle East’s restaurant.”

“THC’s Featured Artist: "Fiery original jams, a solid repertoire of covers, good people, and a uniqueatmosphere combine to make this (Jauntee's Regal Ball) bi-weekly jam-band show a must see for any fun-seeking Bostonian." ”
