"Jounce conjures an early period J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), with
slacker-grunge chops that prove strangely hypnotic. Jounce continues
to successfully define itself."-relix


Jounce is:
Joe Ciarallo, drums
Matt DeSteno, guitar/vocals
Danny Tamberelli, bass/vocals

Unlike other child stars, Danny Tamberelli didn’t wind up with an “E! True Hollywood Story” chronicling self-destructive fits and other mishaps and meltdowns. Tamberelli was 11 when he starred in the quirky Nickelodeon show “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.” On the set, the young actor/musician had his amp blown up by Iggy Pop, got served ice-cream from Michael Stipe and traded CD’s with Steve Buscemi.

There has become a strong demand for Jounce and the Nickelodeon series as seen by 2 sellout shows at NY's Bowery Ballroom in Feb 2012 and a most recently as a part of the Fuck Yeah Festival in Los Angeles in late August.

“I’m passionate about acting, but this is what I was doing in the dressing room even then,” says Tamberelli of his love for playing music. “It’s cool to do both, but music has always been my primary outlet.”

Consisting of Tamberelli on bass, Matt DeSteno on guitar, and Joe Ciarallo on drums, with all members contributing vocals, the band is a mainstay at bars, clubs, music halls, colleges and festivals. They are playing increasingly larger rooms including New York’s Highline Ballroom,Gramercy Theater and DC's State Theater.

The band recorded a version of Miracle Legion’s “The Heart is Attached” as part of a compilation album released in September 2009 titled, “Ciao My Shining Star:The Songs of Mark Mulcahy” and dedicated to Miracle Legion front man Mark Mulcahy. The compilation also featured Radioheads’s Thom Yorke, The National, Frank Black of the Pixies and Elvis Perkins, among others. The project was covered by media from Stereogum to Pitchfork.
