Jukebox The Ghost is a Philly-based trio, originally formed while guitarist Tommy Siegel, pianist Ben Thornewill, and drummer Jesse Kristin were in college in Washington, D.C. They write whimsical, quirky, energetic indie rock full of momentum, an eclectic mix of elements from artists Ben Folds, Elvis Costello, Queen, They Might Be Giants and The Flaming Lips.

Its latest album, Everything Under the Sun, is catchy, yet wildly diverse. The band has toured extensively, most notably with Guster, and will soon support The Barenaked Ladies. It played SXSW in the spring, Lollapalloza in Chicago in August, and appeared on David Letterman in early September, when it played the song “Schizophrenia.”
