LIVE from Vinegar Hill: The Jason Spooner Band

$25 to $30 per person

The Spooner Band has been busy this spring and summer performing around the Northeast both as a headline act and supporting a wide range of acts including The Wallflowers, Yonder Mountain String Band, Brett Dennen, The Samples, Ryan Montbleau and the legendary Judy Collins.
They are thrilled to return to Vinegar Hill which remains one of their favorite listening rooms in the country. As Jason puts it:
“Vinegar Hill is just such a warm-sounding room where the band is completely comfortable. I love it because it lands itself to all of the styles of music we play… we can make upbeat rockers or blues numbers resonate perfectly there but we can also mellow the vibe way down and really deliver a hushed acoustic tune or ballad in that space. There really isn’t a bad seat in the house and audiences are always 100% engaged and appreciative. It’s like no other stage and venue and we’re beyond excited to return!”
Don’t miss a chance to hear one of Maine’s favorite live acts in one of their favorite live performance spaces.


Portland, Maine based songwriter, guitarist and producer Jason Spooner has been a visible and respected presence on the northeastern and national live music circuits for close to two decades. As the bandleader of The Jason Spooner Band (Dan Boyden- Drums, Stu Mahan- Bass and Dawson Hill- Keyboards), Spooner has expanded his musical horizons significantly over the course of five studio releases. The quartet stands out with an interesting signature sound that appeals to a wide range of audiences… seamlessly blending a variety of musical influences into a cohesive, energetic and listenable experience. Roots Rock, Americana, blues, folk and groove-oriented jazz with undercurrents of reggae and soul are all accounted for here and supported by audibly strong musicianship, interesting arrangements and well-crafted, intelligent writing.

The recipe has certainly served the band well; over the last decade and a half this dynamic band has performed with acts as varied as B.B. King, John Mayer, Jackson Browne, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Ray LaMontagne, Susan Tedeschi, Brett Dennen, Allen Stone, Everlast, Jackie Greene, G. Love, Guster, Blues Traveler, Peter Rowan and Sara Bareilles. The band has performed at Targhee Fest in Jackson Hole, WY – The Gathering of the Vibes in Bridgeport, CT – FloydFest in Floyd, Va – The Festival at Sandpoint – Sandpoint, ID – The Naukabout Festival on Cape Cod, the River City Roots Festival in Missoula, MT – The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO and have been perennial favorites at The Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT.

In addition to glowing recent press in Guitar World Magazine, No Depression, High Times Magazine, Wood & Steel Magazine and USA Today, the band was recently named one of Relix Magazine’s coveted “On The Verge – Bands you should know.” The band has won and received numerous nominations for the New England Music Awards including Live Act of the Year (winner) and Song of the Year (nominee).
