We are Swimmer, a Rotten Roll band from Burlington, VT. Rotten Roll is a more nuanced way of saying “Rock N’ Roll and other shit.” Other shit is a more nuanced way of saying “jazz, funk, electronica, and other shit.” Swimmer is comprised of Matt Dolliver (keys / saxophone), Cotter Ellis (drums), Joe Agnello (guitar) and Jack Vignone (bass).
After the band’s conception at Plymouth State University, Swimmer has cultivated a fanbase throughout the country through unique, high-energy performances. Swimmer has shared the stages with bands such as Dopapod, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Aqueous, Kung Fu and many other heavy-hitters in the scene. Swimmer has performed at festivals such as Disc Jam, Jerry Jam, Jeezum Crow, Wild Woods and StrangeCreek.
Waiting on Mongo
Waiting On Mongo is a Jam-Funk band based in Asbury Park, NJ. They have been bars and music venues up and down the Jersey Shore for a few years. They’ve been working on writing new music to record, following up their 2017 release, “Just A Taste,” and have been expanding their reach to cities like Philadelphia, New York, New Orleans, and Charleston. Every gig they play is a party with their friends, even if its the first time in a venue, featuring a raucous horn section, spacey keyboards, and one of the best rhythm sections around.
