"Robert Jon & the Wreck"

“Robert Jon & the Wreck took the tiny room to a whole new level with fog machines, dramatic lighting, and that sexy, hard-grinding blues-rock we never get tired of. Puddle of sweat included in their sonic exchange with our ears....“This hard-working rock ‘n roll band with a huge sound akin to a soft country-styled Foo Fighters wants to take their musical dreams to the next level.” - Nadia Noir - KROQ CBS LOCAL

"Robert Jon & the Wreck"

"Robert Jon & the Wreck is one of Orange County’s premiere rock bands taking the riff rocking attributes of Southern Rock and blending it with some of the softer qualities of today’s pop country. RJ & the Wreck are known for their electrifying live performances and their wholesome, down right, tumbleweed-and-spurs-like sound. Their music is full, instrumentation intricate, and the band has such a great energy on stage. Robert Jon has a killer voice and presence as he fronts the talented musicians otherly known as The Wreck which consists of local champions in the worlds of keyboards, drums, guitars and bass. Whether you like blues, country, rock, southern rock, or any variation of the sort, you will find something to love about these guys.....Live, their set is derived in a way that makes you want to jump up and down, grow a beard, and close-knuckle-punch a bear in the jaw." - Ben Kashuk - UnEarth Music Hub


Still working on that hot first release.



Southern California natives, Robert Jon & the Wreck, began their musical journey together in February 2011. Within 6 months the band had not only embarked on a national tour, but also released their debut album, Fire Started. This full-length effort, which is blues-heavy with moments of soft country, tempered by down-beat driven classic rock nuance, earned them a nod from the 2012 Orange County Music Awards in the category of Best Blues, as well as a spot in the finals for that years Best Live Band. 

Fueled by this success, the Wreck took the road again in the summer of 2012, drumming up fans from Seattle to Boston to South Carolina and everywhere in between, delivering performances emblazoned by passion and dripping with a rawness thats impossible to fake. Simply put, it is difficult to ignore when these five musicians take the stage. Little wonder they have made an impact on audiences across the country, where they have played a run of sold-out shows and proudly shared bills with talent the likes of Walk the Moon and Rival Sons. 

They returned to the studio in early 2013 to record their sophomore project, which was produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith), engineered by Philip Allen (Adele), and mastered by Robert Vosgien (Smashing Pumpkins, No Doubt) at Swing House Studios in Hollywood. This new, and even edgier material has simply added more fuel to the fire that Robert Jon & the Wreck ignite while performing. Audiences all over Orange County and Los Angeles have crammed venues, salivating over a band that is determined to not miss the mark. This sharpshooter like mentality was fully recognized when Robert Jon & the Wreck won the title of Best Live Band at the 2013 Orange County Music Awards, along with nominations in the categories of Best Rock, and Best Blues. 

To take a line from a track off their forthcoming album, Robert Jon & the Wreck have no plans to let the fire burn out. Orange Countys reigning Best Live Band is ready to load up the van and hit the road again. Kicking things off in Austin for SXSW, the Wreck will continue their Rhythm of the Road tour for 7 weeks, playing over 20 shows across 16 American cities. 

As 2013 dawns, the band finds themselves at the cusp of many new adventures. With the second album due for release in June, and plenty of touring in the cards, fans across the nation should prepare themselves to get wrecked by the lion-strength energy created by the beast that is Robert Jon & the Wreck.
