IE Weekly's May 2013 "Band of the Week"
Don't let the name fool you because J. Grizz is no run-of-the-mill band playing mountain songs. The burly name sounds like it could've crawled from the forests, fiddle in hand, but this Inland Empire based band prefers a different style (although it could probably play as mean a fiddle as Charlie Daniels). J. Grizz mainly jams with covers because it understands that people want to hear something familiar when they go out, but it can reach into its bag of tricks and pull out an original reggae/rock/alternative song (although no recordings have been made yet). Whether it's a club, a bar, a wedding or a private party, one thing is certain . . . all of the members are experienced and have a great time on stage performing.
