STIG is an all-instrumental progressive jazz funk band consisting of 5 best friends from a myriad of places both geographically and musically. “We share music with each other during the day, and weave those news ideas into our shows at night.” Their improvisational nature paired with tight communication and 2 years of playing and growing together creates an exploratory and engaging live show experience.
STIG tunes are all original and are always written as a group to fuse each member’s genre-crossing influences. Since forming in Boston while attending Berklee College of Music, STIG has been touring the country non-stop, playing high-energy shows, and catering their funk to the vibe and energy of the crowd.
The band recently relocated to Asheville, North Carolina after falling in love with the town while on tour. An Asheville home base means the chance to dive deep into writing music full time, putting it out there and playing it. “We’re stoked to be immersed in the Asheville music community!”
From opening for the likes of Aqueous, Nicki Bluhm and Dynamo to raging the late night stage at Some Kind Of Jam festival, STIG is constantly working to bring their funky instrumental sound to as many smiling faces as they can. Be on the lookout for new tour dates, music videos, and updates from the band!
