Jerusha Band was formed in San Bernardino, CA back in 1969 when Roger met John, & Keith met John, and after some members came and went, it was just the 3 of them left....they called the band 69th Sundown, Ceasar, then Jerusha, and finally, Jerusha Band.
John transitioned as Johanna, and has been the lead guitarist of the band from the beginning, along with Keith "Buzzy" Wolk, Bass, the only 2 members who have played the whole tenure with
JB. But now my focus is on JLG, my solo band, and music, and changing the world through music.
I love to play small venues, and be personal, restaurants, coffee house, etc.
Special moments? The Las Vegas shows JB has done, the first JB reunion, jamming with Chuck Barris on the Gong Show, meeting Luther Rabb of Ballin'jack, and Glenn Cornick of Jethro Tull, and hanging with em....playing The Whiskey A Go Go, and the ROXY....im not crazy about live shows anymore...but love moving people with my art.
