Jackson Taylor Lee

Frontman

Jackson's passion for his craft of entertaining has always shown as a major part of his personality. His musical journey began at a young age as a member of grandparents theater program. These experiences, along with the great inspiration in his grandfather (Jack Jeckot *bio below*) led to picking up a guitar by age 9.

He furthered his musical knowledge as a part of his high school band and a member of drum and bugle corps hornlines.


Many other inspirations struck him throughout the following years; such as, Eddie Van Halen and John Petrucci, but it was when he discovered blues legends like BB King, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Walter Trout, Eric Gales and Joe Bonamassa, that Jackson fell in love with the genre. After many experiences playing with Walter Trout and his band, Jackson was sold, and knew what he wanted to do with his life. Chasing this passion has always been a dream.

Eric Scirrotto

Guitarist

Eric grew up surrounded by music thanks to his father, Fran, who often enjoyed 70's rock and 90's grunge throughout the house after work. In his teens, he started exploring many more genres of music. Eric was a bass guitarist for HS Symphonic Band class, and a dedicated percussionist in the drumline of the marching ensembles; also where he instructed students after graduation. During this time he learned music theory, how to play to a metronome, and met Jackson and Josh.


His largest influences include many such David Gilmour and John Mayer. One day, he came across Stevie Ray Vaughan's album, Texas Flood. That's when the switch flipped. The blues caused a rush of emotions Eric had not felt before.

Josh Myers

Bassist

Josh grew up inspired by the music being played around him by his father, Bruce. He began his own musical explorations at nine years old as a saxophonist in his school concert band, as well as in his HS marching band, where he met Jackson and Eric. At age 14, Josh saved up to get is first bass, and channeled strong inspirations from Geddy Lee (Rush), Chris Squire (Yes), and Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers). Jude, his close childhood friend, is a drummer who always shared a music taste with him. They played their favorite songs together, and very quickly Josh was sold.


After branching out and exploring new music, he discovered the playing of great bassists like Victor Wooten and Joe Dart (Vulfpeck) both which inspired him to take a leap of faith and give music all he's got. Josh is thrilled to be out playing for and entertaining crowds. He is very simply the groove of JTB. Let's make some noise for the bass player!
