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.
Born and raised (literally) as a power trio, the Specht brothers’ intuitive dynamics are the engine of Flux Capacitor’s progressive, psychedelic rock sound.
Flux Capacitor’s melding of varied rock idioms with elements of electronica- in the context of fluid improvisation- and an ear for melody and song structure made them a perfect fit for support gigs with artists like Papadosio, Lotus, Dopapod, Twiddle and others who share a musical and cultural aesthetic with Flux Capacitor and their steadily growing fan base.
