MEET TRIP J BAND
"The youngest band in the land!"
Who Is Trip J Band
Trip J Band is a band comprised of 3 brothers, Jerio, JB and Jet ages 14,13 & 10 respectively. We gained some popularity performing Pop and Soul shows with creative covers. During shows we began to infuse our original songs and instrumentals with great reception. In this year alone we've written and performed over 10 original songs including a score for the play "Threads". We were challenged with developing several eras of music using a single motif of one of our original songs. We were invited to play at the first annual Kentucky Derby Festival "Block Party" where we performed all original music for the first time during a performance. Earlier in the year we had the privilege of performing with Grammy award winning bassist Christian McBride. That opportunity inspired us to commit further to our craft and it also peaked our interest in the jazz and smooth jazz genres particularly the latter. Our aspiration for the near future is to perform our original material at music festivals nationwide and globally.
Trip J Band Mission
Our mission is to perform positive fun live music as a platform to bring positive change to the lives of others all while making money and building our band into a business and household name. We will continue our community involvement as we endeavor to inspire other youth to reach their full potential.
I like doing backflips and staying active in fitness and sports. I also enjoy arts & crafts, rock collecting and watching other bass players and picking up on new and different techniques.
I like spending time on my hoverboard, bike riding, playing basketball with my brothers and video gaming. I love the drums but I like playing other instruments too!
