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 a very cool mix of great songs that would be perfect for a Car Show, Bike Run, Chili Cook Off, Brewpub, Pig Roast,
Dive Bar, Tailgate Party, 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.
**We have our own PA system that's able to cover any size venue or outdoor situation. Plus, we have a small light rig system if you need us to provide
that as well. We're also able to be very volume sensitive if your event needs to be concerned about that.

Thank you for checking out our profile on GigMasters.

They were prompt and professional on the phone and in person. They added to our event and made it that much better. We were at an outside venue (tailgate) and they kept the volume reasonable so as not to disturb other groups around us as per our request. They played a good assortment of songs that was perfect for our group. I would hire again.

This is the best band I have heard in a long while. They were professional, on time, and their sound is phenomenal. There were 200+ people at the event and everyone talked about how well they enjoyed the music. I highly recommend Dear Jon and the Whale Riders to anyone who loves great music!
