Formed by former members of the now defunct band PF Station, JSB draw their name from the name of the subject of one of PF Station's songs, "A Night in the Life of Fly Jimmy Swift". Before eventually choosing their current name, the band was known for a time as Fly Jimmy Swift. Combining intricate guitar and a distinctly electronica keyboard sound with a hard hitting and rock solid rock rhythm section, the band is known for its lengthy progressive instrumental jams that get the crowd up and moving. The band has won three East Coast Music Awards, including Best Alternative Artist in 2002. The same year, JSB won three Music Industry Association of Nova Scotia (MIANS) awards, including Artist of the Year. In 2004 the band produced their first video for the single "Two Hands on the Wheel" with New Brunswick filmmaker Greg Hemmings.

On November 28, 2006, JSB released an animated video produced by Copernicus Studios for the single "Turnaround", from the album Weight of the World. The band maintains a busy touring schedule across Canada and the US, and they have performed at numerous festivals including Nova Scotia's Evolve Festival, Prince Edward Island's Shoreline Festival, Moedown (NY), Haymaker (VA), the World Electronic Music Festival (Toronto) and many more. The group are at the head of a growing Atlantic Canada jam scene, and frequently play with fellow scene mates Grand Theft Bus, and Slowcoaster. Read more on Last.fm.
