Jason Spooner - Apres ArtWalk Concert
Portland, Maine's own Jason Spooner Band (Jason Spooner - guitar & vocals, Reed Chambers - Drums & Percussion and Adam Frederick - Bass & vocals, Warren Mcpherson - Keyboards & vocals) is in the midst of one of the band's most exciting musical growth spurts to date.
Over the last few years this dynamic band has opened for acts as varied as B.B. King, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Ray LaMontagne, Susan Tedeschi, Jackie Greene, G. Love, Guster, Blues Traveler, Peter Rowan and Sara Bareilles. Within the last two summers alone Jason and the band performed at Targhee Fest in Jackson Hole, WY - FloydFest in Floyd, Va - The Festival at Sandpoint - Sandpoint, ID - The Naukabout Festival on Cape Cod, the River City Roots Festival in Missoula, MT and The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO.
In addition to glowing recent press in High Times Magazine and USA Today, the band has just been named one of Relix Magazine's "On The Verge - Bands you should know" for their coveted March issue which is featured prominently at SXSW in TX.
The band's latest studio album has been featured heavily on Sirius/XM's The Loft channel, on NPR's All Things Considered and at over 11,000 Starbucks retail locations nationwide. The album reached the #18 spot last year on the national BDS Indicator chart for all of Triple A Radio. It was the only independent album on the chart at the time.
Recent tours include a month-long tour opening dozens of shows for The Ryan Montbleau Band around the west and a recent winter tour which included dates in UT, ID and a week of performances at The Sundance Film Festival.
The band's summer 2012 schedule included appearances at The Gather of the Vibes in CT, The Reel Blues Festival on Cape Cod, 92.5 The River's The Homegrown
Festival in Boston and opening slots for Jackson Browne, Ben Taylor, Donovan Frankenreiter, Scars on 45, Meiko, Ryan Montbleau and Eric Hutchinson.
They will be very busy this summer with festival appearances and shows around New England including a main stage slot at the 25th Anniversary of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in Hillsdale, NY and an opening slot for John Mayer in late August.
