STIG is an all-instrumental, progressive jazz/funk band from Boston, MA.

Consisting of 5 close friends, STIG aims to bring people together with their music. The tight communication and positive energy shared between everyone in the group brews a raw and exciting experience at every show. STIG came together during their time at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. They spent most of their first year together playing sweaty, overflowing basement shows in Allston, the student filled neighborhood in Boston. STIG’s music is all original and is always written as a group to draw from everyone’s genre-crossing influences.

STIG was invited to play the main stage at the NAMM Music Convention in Anaheim, CA in January of 2016 and from that point forward they’ve solidified their lineup and have been touring all over the Northeast. They released their first live album, “FLEX”, in September of 2016 and their EP, “Downtown Tom” was released in July of 2017. The band recently completed a successful tour of the Southwest and West Coast and is continuing to fill their calendar with national tour plans. Be on the lookout for new videos and tour dates from STIG!!

“We want our listeners to enjoy our music just as much as we enjoy playing it. To play music that makes you smile and move with us is our goal. We all find inspiration in many different genres and enjoy making groovy music with the different ideas we hear on a daily basis.”
