With infectious energy, Jeremy Mohney and His Band, based out of Colorado, capture the sounds of swing with a feel that can't be reproduced by many alive. Always rooted and honoring the greats like Armstrong, Ellington and Waller, who set the groundwork for the music, he plays with his own faithful, yet unique take. His band plays the old favorites as well as originals written by Mohney himself that capture the feel of the classics seamlessly, showing how fresh it's always been. Keeping crowds smiling and dancing all over the US in speakeasies, swing dances and festival stages alike, Jeremy shows no sign of stopping. His running of a weekly Tuesday Night Swing Jam at Boulder's No Name Bar, common stands at the Mercury Cafe Denver, and countless tours are testament to that. He works with top Colorado musicians like Greg Schochet (Halden Wofford and the Hi*Beams, Katie Glassman and Snapshot), Matt Cantor (Gipsy Moon), Alex Heffron, Chris Carland (Bill McKay Band), Kyle Ussery (Bill McKay Band) to give you the genuine sounds of swing with glaring personality. Sharing stages with Colorado greats Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon), members of Elephant Revival and Swing sensations Solomon Douglas and Jake Sanders add to his salt as a performer. Jeremy is always writing and recording new music for the tradition. His latest EP called "Solving The World's Problems" was released in February 2017 and he's got his fifth release coming soon, an EP called "Burning In Me". With tons of original releases, more on the way, and a busy schedule, Jeremy Mohney and his music will make a gator out of you yet!
