In the course of their 23 year history, Jupiter Coyote has played over four thousand shows, traveled everywhere and done just about everything a touring band can do. The innovative group has independently sold well over half a million CDs, tens of thousands of downloads, and who knows how many bootlegs loose to fans for free. JC is brand name and still trucking along, despite today’s ever-changing, increasingly unpredictable music scene. They joined us for our 5GB series before their show.
