For some people starting the least entertaining band in the world while living in the Entertainment capital of the world would seem like a silly thing to do. Well, not the guys in Jerk.
Singer and guitarist Josh The Jerk with Tate Hall on bass and Josh Howard hitting the skins looked to fill a serious void in the Las Vegas pogo punk scene. Ok there was no pogo punk scene, but that didn't stop them from trying. In 2015 they donned their leather jackets, Chuck Taylors and started working on their first batch of songs.
2017 saw the addition of stage diving aficionado Matt Brown on Guitar bringing in the 2nd guitar sound the band had been missing. Jerk quickly perfected the art of 3 chord rocket science and started sharing the stage with bands like Lillingtons. The Dickies, Interrupters, Guttermouth & The Jasons.
Slowly but surely they were building a local fan base, starting to tour the country, landing a spot on the Punk Rock Bowling Music Festival and signing to Moms Basement Records.
Fast forward to post pandemic times and the band is set to tour the country, play Punk Rock Bowling and release another record. Josh is still on guitar and singing, Matt is still on 2nd guitar but has given up stage diving (for safety reasons). Josh H is still playing drums and AJ Wyatt is getting his cherry popped as the new bassist.
We may be living in a new era thats to Covid but Jerk is still banging out blissful Ramonescore/Pogo Punk classics like it was 1977.
