    The Jauntee
    The Jauntee
    In a world filled with instant gratification, gimmicky over saturation and a lack of true improvisation, The Jauntee pays tribute to music’s ability to transcend simple entertainment and cultivate a truly distinctive experience. The Jauntee has fostered a musical community based on a breadth of original material that engages fans through nightly exploration and risk taking. Averaging over one hundred shows a year, with each containing a unique set list and their own special improvisational moments, the band is constantly expanding upon what defines them and their live performances.

    With almost a decade’s worth of touring experience; appearances at major festivals such as Peach Fest, Catskill Chill, and Resonance; and 36 states toured with stops at national touring staples such as Brooklyn Bowl, Georgia Theatre, and the Paradise Rock Club, The Jauntee have been nurturing a fanbase of dedicated followers who are inspired by their music and willing to travel to see what the band has in store next. Fans that thoroughly analyze their music, track their set lists and passionately promote their music. The Jauntee makes each night an exciting prospect of a new shared experience with bust-outs, fresh jamming, poignant covers, and accessible songwriting.

    Their latest live album “ALWAYS NEVER KNOWING” is a quintessential selection of live works from the band’s 2017 two-night-run at The Bridge Sound & Stage in their hometown of Cambridge, MA. It features 16 tracks that were professionally recorded, mixed, and mastered by sound engineer Alex Allinson. It showcases the band’s masterful playing and inspiring ability to take their original music and create something uniquely theirs night after night. It also features nine previously unreleased tracks that have quickly become staples of their live show. Experience the band in their purest element, pushing the boundaries of their sound while sharing that trip with their fans.
    The never-ending love for The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia is shown through the vast number of Dead & Garcia tribute bands. ACE takes a different approach and shares its love for Bob Weir.

    In addition to playing for the Dead, Weir played in several side projects. ACE shows include lots of Dead, plus Kingfish, Bobby and the Midnites, RatDog and more.

    ACE was founded by rhythm guitarist Michael Kaufman. Michael has been a Weir-devotee since the mid 1970's and was the original rhythm guitarist and a founding member of Stella Blue's Band. Although he owns short shorts, he's drawn a line and has never owned a pink guitar.

    Larry Siebert's searing lead guitar shows his originality plus influences from great guitarists such as Jerry Garcia, Robbie Hoddinott (Kingfish), Bobby Cochran (Midnites) and others.

    Ken Kaufman can do it all. With ACE, he's primarily the drummer, however, sometimes he'll play bass, and if asked, can play guitar. Highly in demand, Ken is always participating simultaneously in half a dozen musical projects.

    Mark Mattson is a very versatile keyboard player and a walking encyclopedia of Grateful Dead knowledge. He often speaks at Dead-related symposia.

    Osvin Yanes, full of youth and energy, is a newcomer to the Dead music scene. Listening to Phil Lesh has been an eye-opening experience. Osvin also participates in several musical projects.

    ACE delivers a highly satisfying, yet different experience.

    ACE is from Fairfield County, CT.
