Justusworx came together more than 10 years ago In Bend, Oregon. With influences in driving blues-rock, soul, funk, and jazz. Our priority is to be flexible, collaborative, and have fun. We figure, if we are having fun, our audience will have fun with us. Justusworx, has released our second full length album - River of Lost Souls - and we are eager to play some of our new songs for you live.
"There are roaring guitar solos, a steady stream of drums and the classic tales of heartbreak, love and thrills throughout the 10-track album."
"Long-running Bend blues rock combo Justusworx delivers fiery guitar playing and barreling rhythms on “River of Lost Souls,” its first full-length studio album and second release overall"
Mike spent his youth playing guitar 10 hours a day, which means he didn't date much in high school. He then built his chops on the east coast before moving to Colorado...and now he's shredding with us. Mikes a guys that'll make you stop at the door and turn around when he starts to solo. He's also a prolific writer, composer and a pretty nice guy. But don't tell him we said that.
Mike has played everywhere and with everyone. From Oregon to California, Florida to Colorado. Mike is the soul of the band who can (and has) rocked with the best. He's known as an amazing talent in Central Oregon and we're just lucky to have him playing with us. Not only can he cover and solo with best, but he also writes the most awsome toons. Keys, guitar, vocals, he does it all.
Ask anyone around the Central Oregon music scene who the best drummers are and Charlie's name always comes up. He may look (and sound) like a rock 'n roll drummer, but he can do it all. Latin, funk, jazz, blues, R&B, reggae, you name it, he does it. Charlie is the beating heart of this band. And when we turn him loose...well, get ready for a heart attack.
What doesn't this guy do? Spooky is a regular on the Central Oregon Music scene. He plays guitar, keys, congas, harmonica, just about everything. Give him 10 minutes and he'd probably come up with a really cool bagpipe solo. His experience and talent really shine in this band. And he has a bitchin' Harley too.
As an esteemed and integral part of our rhythm section, its Spanx's job to hold up our bottom. He also get's to wash everyone's car and pick up their dry cleaning. He brings 20 years of bass to the band, but is still in awe of the musicianship of its members. "This is a fun band to play with".
