Biography

The spark that started the blaze happened on the summer solstice of 2008 when Torch the Wagon rose from the ashes of the previous bands the members had been in. The fire has only gotten hotter as Torch the Wagon continues to burn up the local scene playing some of Denver’s hottest venues.

Torch the Wagon was formed by Jeff Simeral, the drummer from the popular local band Stepshort, and Jeff Johnson, a fresh newcomer to the Denver scene. The two Jeffs toiled day and night to build the finest wagon the world had ever seen. After 40 days and nights of devoted labor, the wagon was built. They then immediately set the wagon ablaze and recorded the resulting glorious inferno, creating their debut EP, “Longest Day of the Year�.

Jeff Simeral (lead vocalist and rhythm guitar) electrifies crowds with his magnetic charisma and raw sex appeal. Jeff Johnson (lead guitar and backup vocals) is a charming devil destined from creation to ignite your soul with his red-hot guitar licks and suave sophistication. Quentin Robinson (bass guitar) is calm, cool, and collected, but unleashes the fury when lowering the boom with his mighty bass lines and smooth grooves. Ty Dokken (drums) and his intricate and entrancing drum beats provide the thunderous heartbeat to the beautifully savage monster that is Torch the Wagon.

Torch the Wagon’s music is a diverse, decadent blend of grunge, punk, stoner rock, and classic rock, and influences include such bands as Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, Fu Manchu, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, and many, many more, which means that Torch the Wagon isn’t just for anyone – it’s for everyone. Their passion for all things rock shines through in their energetic, sizzling live shows. The only thing they can’t do is disappoint.

So listen to Torch the Wagon, and remember:

“We aim to please, and we never miss.� – Torch the Wagon
