The Jazz June

The Jazz June started their eight year run in 1996 in a small Pennsylvanian locale called Kutztown. The initial lineup--consisting of Andrew Low (vocals, guitar), Bryan Gassler (guitar), Dan O'Neill (bass) and Justin Max (drums), as well as Nat Duncan (guitar) who left the band in 1999--all met at Kutztown University and began playing shows in basements and garages in the area.

The Jazz June started their eight year run in 1996 in a small Pennsylvanian locale called Kutztown. The initial lineup--consisting of Andrew Low (vocals, guitar), Bryan Gassler (guitar), Dan O'Neill (bass) and Justin Max (drums), as well as Nat Duncan (guitar) who left the band in 1999--all met at Kutztown University and began playing shows in basements and garages in the area. The band amalgamated elements of indie rock, punk and post-hardcore for a sound that continued the legacy of the mid-'90s underground emo movement; The Jazz June were equal parts precision, musical complexity and punk spontaneity, creating a conglomeration of noise and melody that was uniquely their own. Their 2000 album The Medicine was produced by Don Zientara and J. Robbins of Jawbox at the legendary Inner Ear Studios in D.C. and is widely considered their magnum opus. Later in their career, the band became more and more experimental which, in addition to their changing lives and the dissolution of their label, caused them to stop playing live in 2004 and enter into inactivity. During this period, they reunited once for a benefit in 2007 with their future producer Evan Weiss' band The Progress and the young emo revivalists in Street Smart Cyclist. The Jazz June officially reformed in 2013 for Topshelf Records' CMJ Showcase in New York alongside their newly reunited contemporaries Braid, releasing a split with Dikembe afterward and a full-length entitled After the Earthquake the following year. « hide
