Skeetones

Skeetones

Jam/Electronica (Cincinnati)

Although Skeetones are generally classified as an Electronic band, the quintet has little in common with their disaffected laptop-on-loop brethren. Cooking up a sonic gumbo comprised of Jazz, Hip Hop, Dubstep and bits of anything-but-standard Rock, Skeetones hew closer to an Electronic Jam band, given their practice of improvising with samples and various musical elements, creating a Jam band atmosphere with a decidedly un-Jam-like methodology. Playing Electronic and Jam music in a completely atypical fashion, giving away their music online and a relentless work ethic have made Skeetones one of Cincinnati’s hardest charging and most respected bands in recent memory.
