Don’t Miss Jukebox the Ghost at The Bowery BallroomMay 4th, 2011
Jesse Kristin (drums), Tommy Siegel (vocals and guitar) and Ben Thornewill (vocals and piano) all met in 2003 while attending George Washington University. They originally formed a band called the Sunday Mail, but decided to break up two years later. However the trio still wanted to stick together, so after writing more material, they relocated to Philadelphia and reformed the band, now called Jukebox the Ghost. This new group received positive reviews and began touring with the likes of Ben Folds. Not too shabby. A couple of albums followed, including last year’s catchy Everything Under the Ghost, and you can see Jukebox the Ghost (above, doing “Good Day” for HearYa.com) live when they play The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night with Wakey! Wakey! and Pretty & Nice.
