Lindsay Petsch (guitjo (banjo), acoustic and electric guitars, vocals) ~
With the extreme good fortune of having two supportive, musically talented parents, Lindsay began learning piano and then guitar at a young age. As one of two principal songwriters in the band and a long time solo performer, Lindsay brings a wealth of performance and songwriting experience to JSB.
Tom Spach (bass, vocals) ~
Music is so embedded in Tom's DNA that he used to sing himself to sleep every night before he could even speak or walk. Before becoming a live performing musician Tom wrote and recorded music for all the major theaters in Atlanta as well as for a broad variety of international, national and regional productions, feature-length fine arts videos, television and radio commercials, and corporate media. Tom is the other principal songwriter in JSB.
Jason Maynard (acoustic and electric guitars, vocals) ~
Jason honed his fine picking skills over a long time. And he has benefited from the guidance and instruction of guitar master Jorma Kaukonen at Jorma's Fur Peace Ranch in Ohio. Jason is a firm believer in the musicians adage: "you cannot own too many guitars."
Matt (the cat) Watkins (drums, percussion, vocals) ~
Matt is a sought after drummer, appreciated for his delicate touch and tasteful percussion work. Before coming to JSB, Matt played in several ensembles in Atlanta.
