The Jason Spooner Band - Oyster Party Musical Guests
New England’s own Jason Spooner Band (Jason Spooner – guitar, vocals and harmonica, Adam Frederick - Bass & vocals, Warren Mcpherson - Keyboards & vocals and Dan Boyden - Drums & Percussion) is in the midst of one of the band’s most exciting musical growth spurts to date. The quartet stands out with an interesting signature sound that appeals to a wide range of audiences.... seamlessly blending a variety of musical influences into a cohesive, energetic and listenable experience. Roots Rock, Americana, blues, folk and groove-oriented jazz with undercurrents of reggae and soul are all accounted for here and supported by audibly strong musicianship, interesting arrangements and well-crafted, intelligent songwriting.
“I think our individual musical tastes and backgrounds make this band appear like a bit of a science experiment on paper” says Spooner with a laugh. “We certainly never got together to blueprint out the specific kind of band we aimed to be like perhaps a bluegrass, reggae or a jam band would. Our influences just seemed to seep into the mix organically, and things got more interesting as we added new members. I think this diversity has been an asset in the end and it’s made us welcome at a huge variety of venues and festivals... we’re as welcome at a jam band festival as we are at a folk festival, a Triple A pop radio event or even a big blues show.”
The recipe has certainly served the band well... over the last decade and a half this dynamic band has performed with acts as varied as B.B. King, John Mayer, Jackson Browne, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Ray LaMontagne, Susan Tedeschi, Brett Dennen, Jackie Greene, G. Love, Guster, Blues Traveler, Peter Rowan and Sara Bareilles. The band has performed at Targhee Fest in Jackson Hole, WY - The Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport, CT - FloydFest in Floyd, Va - The Festival at Sandpoint - Sandpoint, ID – The Naukabout Festival on Cape Cod, the River City Roots Festival in Missoula, MT - The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO and have been perennial favorites at The Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT.
