Jam Theory was formed in early June of 2008 after a late night jam session by brothers Ben and Jesse Gutierrez, and long time friend and guitarist Joel Martinez. They wanted to create a band that relied strictly on pure improvisation. They didn't know if it would work or if they would fall flat on their faces but they recorded a quick demo and with that quickly booked their first gig. After an amazing first gig they knew they were onto something new, different and exciting. The next gig would bring something new to the plate, second guitarist Mike Ramos had joined the band the night before and keeping to pure imoprov played the show the next night. In September Joel would leave the group to return to Boston, MA where he had just graduated from Berkley College of Music in the spring. Just before his departure, Rick Luna on auxiliary percussion would join and complete the lineup. Now being the Jam Theory that exists today they continued to push forward and develop as a group. October would see the self release of the groups first CD 'InconFormation' an all instrumental collection of songs from the first 4 months of the bands existence. Not easily categorized or thrown into any genre 'InconFormation' represents the formation of the group and their desire not to conform to any preconceptions of what they or the music should be. Their music is not bound by any particular genres and flows seamlessly between many, from jazz all the way to metal, nothing is held back.
