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.
We are a five piece band playing mostly our own music. Our sound is a blend between rock and roll, bluegrass, funk and jam music. We love to have spacey sounds too. The Schroons give you the perfect blend of rock music mixed with chilled out psychedelia and fat grooves.
