Jonathan has been performing for well over 20 years, starting out playing in church with his parents and other groups. At the age of 16 he played his first show with rock band, Rose of Sharon, opening for local punk band, Dogwood. He later went on to join another rock band, Pound Foolish, and tour up and down the coast of California. From there he expanded his musical horizons to join Irish fiddle rock band, Lexington Field, adding banjo, mandolin, guitar, and backing vocals to their lineup. Notable events included a sold out show at The Bellyup Tavern in Solana Beach on Saint Patricks Day.
With all these years of experience, Jonathan was ready for a new challenge, to perform as a one man show, with only his guitar, microphone, and harmonica to back him up. He has added a few tools along the way, one being a drum machine pedal, among other things, to help fill out his sound. He enjoys playing at places such at Helix Brewing Company, La Mesa Wine Works, San Pasqual Wine Tasting Room, Turtle Rock Ridge Winery, Trevi Hills Vineyards, and The Luau tiki bar, just to name a few. He is also available to hire for your private events as well. He provides all sound equipment and gear needed to perform, all he needs is an outlet to plug into.
He spans multiple different genres, from pop, rock, country, and alternative. Playing anything from Adele to Weezer, and everything in between. Hits from the 60’s, such as The Beatles, 90’s alternative, like Matchbox 20, and even more modern hits by the likes of Chris Stapleton. Always doing his best to read the room, and make sure everyone is having a great time.
