Travis Denning Band w/ The Paper Jets
June 12, 2014 @ 10:30 pm - 1:40 am
The Paper Jets are a three-piece indie-rock/powerpop band based in Central New Jersey and featuring Brian E. on vocals and guitar, Scottie Maloney on bass and Frank Lettieri on drums and vocals. Heavily influenced by Cheap Trick, Big Star, Ben Folds, Spoon, and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, the band is preparing to release its debut full-length album, “We Are All Strange Friends,” in early 2013.Founded in 2005 under the moniker The Invisible Solid, The Paper Jets grew out of a senior thesis project undertaken by Brian and Frank, who were both students at Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ. The goal was to record a full album using only “consumer” equipment, and five of the songs from these sessions can be heard on the band’s odds-and-sods collection, “Sorta Bored,” available on iTunes and Spotify. In 2008, Scottie joined the band, and the group adopted their current name after a brainstorming session that resulted in rejected titles such as The Sly Figurines, The Effuse, At the Laundromat, Peter Buck’s Air Rage and Ballscraper.
