Jennis delivers more sound, variety and fun than one would think could fit into a single touring van. The duo brings together Guelph-based Dennis Gaumond’s decades of writing and performing, with Jen Gillmor, veteran of the Toronto indie scene. Their blend of cello, dobro, didgeridoo, harmonica, flute, guitar, bass, jaw harp and wazinator, combined with catchy, quirky original songs, makes for a unique and unforgettable performance.
Jennis’s rootsy sound is at times bluesy, at times funky, jazzy or folky, with a hint of exotic ethnic influences. Jennis has been performing regularly at a variety of venues, including house concerts and festivals all over Ontario and reaching west as far as Northern BC. The material is mostly original, with some Jennisized versions of recognizable classics.
