    Swimmer Announce Fall Tour Dates

    Swimmer is hittin’ the road this fall! The Vermont-based jam outfit is bringing their high-energy live performance to the Midwest and Colorado, including debuts in Illinois and Wisconsin. The tour wraps up with 2 Halloween celebrations in New Hampshire and finally, back home in Vermont at the legendary Nectar’s. Join Swimmer this fall in a city near you!

    We are Swimmer, a Rotten Roll band from Burlington, VT. Rotten Roll is a more nuanced way of saying “Rock N’ Roll and other shit.” Other shit is a more nuanced way of saying “jazz, funk, electronica, and other shit.” Swimmer is Matt Dolliver (keys/ saxophone), Cotter Ellis (drums), Joe Agnello (guitar) and Jack Vignone (bass).

    Since the bands conception at Plymouth State University, Swimmer has cultivated a fanbase throughout the country through unique, high-energy performances. Swimmer has shared the stages with bands such as Dopapod, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Aqueous, Kung Fu and many other heavy-hitters in the scene. Swimmer has performed at festivals such as Disc Jam, Wild Woods and Strangecreek.

    This Fall the band is diving into uncharted waters, visiting new venues from OH to MI, WI, through the Midwest and out to Colorado and back. They return to the northeast for Halloween shows in NH and VT OCT 31 and NOV 1. There is no treading water with this band, but hard and strong strokes that propel them through uncharted waters to new lands. Jump in, the water is fine.
