Jettison Never CD Release Party

Good music isn’t hard to find, but is almost always under appreciated. Talented music is not a privilege to those with fancy record deals and fame; in fact, talented music seeps through every city, every club, every night—you just have to open your ears and listen.

The night of wonderful music began with Behold the Brave, from Cleveland. This jam band combines rock with a little jazz to create a unique sound that’s impossible to not like. The alternative sound floods your soul and makes you move. And apparently, according to the lead singer, inspiration for music can strike anywhere, including while sitting on the toilet.


Following them was Moonshoe Mumsy (named while bassist N

oah Dobbs was on a train in New Zealand and combined random words he saw). They entertained with a little funk and whole lot of classic rock. Musical influences include Phish, Led Zepplin, Modest Mouse, and even

Outkast. “It’s hard to pin us down,” said guitarist and vocalist Addison Perkins, “Our sound constantly changes.” Reminiscent of classics like Little Feat and Cream, Moonshoe Mumsy will be a band to watch.


Jettison Never, comprised of brothers Matt and Josh Gilbert and cousin Ben Philips, took the stage next to celebrate the release of their new album, Waiting for Apparitions. It’s been available for digital download since last October, but at the show they were selling autographed,  numbered, limited edition CDs. Get yours while they’re still available, and be a part of Jettison Never history.


At times rock, at time jazz, Jettison Never echoes the uniqueness of MUTEMATH and even U2. “I love the album,” said bassist Matt Gilbert. “I think it’s our best work yet.” One fantastic song that puts a little groove in your feet is “Chain Reaction.” You can catch this song on Rock105’s Homegrown show.


Guitarist and vocalist Josh Gilbert explained that this album contains mounds of the technical musicianship found in prog rock with deep, meaningful lyrics. “Our belief in God translates to love and how we share love,” he said. “That’s kind of what the band is about. We hope that people will find love, find God, through our music.”
