Welcome to the profile page for the band Dear Jon, & the Whale Riders! This is band leader, vocalist & guitarist Kohl Aldjo and I'm very excited to have you listen to our music and consider us for your upcoming event. We're musicians who love playing great classics and new songs with a classic sound! So if that's something you'd like to hear, check us out! Cheers. DKA

( *huge shout-out to Dan Scholtz, the artist behind the Cowboy Ghost Rider painting. Thank You! Your work is amazing. )

Dear Jon, & the Whale Riders is a band name we came up with in dedication to our amazing drummer Jonathon who sadly, is no longer with us. At the young age of 20, Jonathon, always the adventurer, traveled to New Zealand to go whale riding and, due to a tragic accident, his life was cut way too short. Amazingly, we were able to capture his performances and keep him with us and playing together wherever we go! May his spirit forever endure whether it's riding whales or pounding on the drums!

The genres we cover are Southern Rock, Texas Blues, Classic Rock and some Olde School Country. If you check out our song list you'll see that while we play covers,
we are NOT one of the dozen or more tribute bands that only play music by one artist. Nor do we only play music from a particular decade! - ( Jon would turn over in his grave if we weren't doing music by his two favorite artist; Johnny Cash and the Foo Fighters! )

So our music is an eclectic mix of great songs that would be perfect for a Car Show, Bike Run, Chili Cook Off, Pig Roast or back yard BBQ. A friend of mine even pointed out that rather than wedding receptions our music would be perfect if you're throwing yourself a Divorce Party! - ( Now we're talkin'…!! )

We have a few originals we're working on and an album is in the pipeline so at some point festivals and concerts are something we'll be shooting for.


Thank you for checking out our profile on GigMasters.

They are both very talented and very professional. They arrive early to set up and always ask what they can do to make the experience better. They are so warm,friendly and engaging. I feel like they are a part of our Mile High Harley Davidson family. Thanks Gina
