The Grift is an independent band from Burlington, VT. Their sound defies easy categorization, blending booty-shaking grooves and improvisation with radio-friendly hooks, witty lyrics, and tight vocal harmonies. Their live shows are energetic and original, with band members swapping instruments and occasionally playing two at a time. With a deep catalogue of original music that blends roots-rock and pop and jam, The Grift throws their diverse array of musical influences into the oven and cooks up tasty sonic treats.


DoJo kicks out high-energy covers of 80’s classics, bluegrass-style! Have you ever heard the riff to Sweet Child of Mine on a banjo? Sung in harmonies as sharp as a ninja throwing star? You haven’t lived until you have. With a deep repertoire of songs you probably know by heart, Clint Bierman (banjo), Jeff Vallone (bass) and Peter Day (guitar) deliver a boot-stompin’, whiskey-drinkin’ good time.
