Thursdays on the Dock: John Spignesi Band

July 22, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

John Spignesi Band
Thursday, July 22, 2021
5:30-7:30 pm

Thursdays on the Dock has been a shoreline staple since 2009. 12 years in and we are still the destination for waterfront music. Each Thursday evening in July and August from 5:30-7:30, bring a chair or blanket, and watch the sun go down over the river.

Our presenting sponsor, Prive Swiss Wellness is always on hand offering massages and giveaways.

New Haven based quartet “JSB” (shortened for The John Spignesi Band) is a group you don’t want to sleep on. Led by guitarist/frontman, John “Spigs” Spignesi, this band has been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene since their formation in January 2015.

“What’s on the setlist tonight?” many fans tend to ask. The answer is you, the audience, and the vibe at the venue. Together we can guide the journey and the energy of the show. It’s about that shared experience. JSB has never used setlists, often sculpting shows on the fly, with rockers, ballads, & sing-a-longs. A truly diverse musical ensemble who doesn’t believe limiting themselves to genres, JSB performs a wide variety of original tunes while adding in covers that they truly make their own.

JSB has shared the stage with national-touring acts such as Max Creek, Zach Deputy, Kung Fu, The Funky Dawgz Brass Band, and more. On the road and on the stage, the band’s motto has become “No Reverse” inspiring them to always be hungry for more.

In case of inclement weather, please check our site. All updates will be shown there.

We pass a hat!

Want to get out on the water?
Take a sunset cruise aboard the Onrust. Departing from Steamboat Dock, the cruise is a great way to experience New England’s Great River. Bring a picnic supper.
