Feeling a bit camera shy


Juvenile Characteristics is a 4-piece acoustic band committed to playing our favorite covers and our own original music. The covers we choose to play are songs that we would want to listen to if we were going to see live music. Our original music is written from our hearts based on our experiences and dreams.

Original members, Jason Hummell, Kris Chapman, and Jason Sample started the band in early 2009 and played together for most of 5 years.  In early 2014, they added Mitch Adelman to the mix completing their unique sound. Many changes have accompanied their musical growth over the course of 7+ years including the addition of new instruments,  percussion and more intricate harmonies. 

Jason Hummell plays acoustic guitar and adds both lead and background vocals. As the one man rhythm machine, he also provides a unique engergy while he keeps tempo playing hi-hat, and kick snare drum.  

Kris Chapman is the driving energy force that leads Juvenile Characteristics with sweet vocals on both melodies and harmonies. Chappy is also known to throw down some impressive dance moves while playing a mean tambourine

Jason Sample makes his presence felt on the low end of the musical register. As the bass man, he provides his energy through the upright bass, electric bass, and kick bass drum. You will also hear him adding to the mix with bass vocals.

Mitch Adelman is the newest member of Juvenile Characteristics, completing the sound with pedal steel, lead electric guitar and slide guitar. His musical ability has driven the band to many new experiences and challenges.

For us, the live experience is what we thrive on, promoting the peace and love that has shaped our lives. We encourage you to check out a live show, however, in the meantime, we hope this will serve as an opportunity for us to provide you with the musical aspect of the experience with Juvenile Characteristics.

 Thanks, much peace and love
