The Jauntee, which has made a name for itself in the New England jam band scene, will play at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, at Cruisers Bar, 715 Horizon Drive.

The Boston-based band is touring the Midwest and into Colorado through the end of August, culminating in two Phish-After Parties, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, at Quixote’s in Denver, according to the band’s blog a thejauntee.com.

Formed in 2010, the band played more than 100 shows in its first two years of touring, notes the band’s online bio.

The Jauntee focuses on “live improvisation, set list variety, and musical exploration, making every show different from the last, truly making The Jauntee a live act to see again and again,” according to thejauntee.com.

“In this the 30th year of Phish, I declare their successor to be The Jauntee. Going through the details it will appear they share traits with many bands who’ve used Phish as a template in much the same way as a plethora of legends used Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry in the ‘60s and ‘70s,” wrote columnist David Paul Kleinman, in a June 21 column posted at jambands.com.

With a willingness to perform funk, rock, jazz, progressive, bluegrass, psychedelic and ambient music, The Jauntee is comfortable with “diving into ‘the weird’ that sets them apart from your average upcoming jam band,” the online bio said.

Call Cruisers at 314-2554 for information about the show.
