So, WHo are they?
Formed in 2015, The John Spignesi Band has steadily climbed the ranks of the Jam Scene.
What makes this band unique? This is a question often asked by first time listeners. It could be the experience, amounting to over 100 years of playing in a live setting. It could be the pulsing energy. Or maybe it's the extensive song catalogue, featuring both originals and covers that take you on a wild ride. Words cannot do it justice. It is truly an experience.
You'll just have to see it for yourself.
