ABOUT INTREPID TRAVELERS_____________________
Founded in 2013 on friendship, fun, and a sense of freedom, IT quickly built a following as an improvisational band that draws influence from the diverse catalog of American music, each show delves into the unknown, throwing aside setlists and traditional arrangements for explorations in all genres, from heavy roots in jazz-funk fusion, rock, bluegrass, to even classical and electronic music. Party music for the head and heart that also keeps the dance floor grooving.

Since 2016, “IT” has been busy both in the studio and out, with the release of third EP “Everyday Is Your Birthday”, embarking on multiple national tours, and the follow-up of its annual family-run festival, “IT Fest”, all on its resume. Already breaking 100 shows in 2016 and 2017, the young band has been on a meteoric rise like no other, and with the inclusion in national festivals such as Summer Camp Music Festival, Cobblestone Live, and Night Lights, people are beginning to notice. With the completion of only their fourth year, Intrepid Travelers are already continuing the great tradition of bringing people together, and do so with the same musical honesty and rawness of improvisation giants before.
