From Long Beach California, JIRO®, winner of the 2017 Akademia Music Award® for BEST POP/ROCK SONG for "Run, Run, Run" has the lead vocal style that can cut through a crowd with machine-gun style bass, nasty, rhythmic guitar riffs, and pulsating drums that keep audiences on their feet and chanting for more around the globe.
Jiro (vox/bass) is the former bassist of Richie Ramone and co-producer of his debut album "Entitled". He has produced 2 albums for CJ Ramone.
A pioneer rocker, Jiro founded the all Japanese band Kamikazi in 1982 who later recorded for and appeared in the motion picture Lethal Weapon starring Mel Gibson in 1987.
Jiro's 2014 solo effort Return of the Kamikazi, released on Mosrite Records®, is a virtual who's who of punk rock legends showcasing talents such as C.J. Ramone, Dez Cadena, Jonny Two Bags, Steve Soto, Mickey Leigh and many others with special guest appearances by Rock&Roll Hall of Fame members Elliot Easton, Clem Burke, and the late Nokie Edwards of the legendary Ventures.
Jiro's touring band features jaw dropping lead guitarist Alex Kane, a founding member of Life Sex and Death (LSD) and AntiProduct as well as a former member of Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg and Richie Ramone. Behind the kit is drumming virtuoso Timothy Jimenez of the Rave-Ups who were featured in John Hughes 1986 film Pretty In Pink. Rest assured, "beats working" goes without saying. You will be rocked.
Fans of modern day rock music should be familiar with the musicians who back Ven in Venrez - both guitarist Womack and drummer Ed Davis played with Juliette Lewis and the Licks, while guitarist Alex Kane is a former member of both Life Sex and Death (LSD) and Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg. Bassist Michael Bradford (a childhood friend of Womack's) rounds out the group. As evidenced by the group's debut full-length, 'Sell the Lie,' it didn't take long for the group's chemistry to kick into gear, as the album's sound/approach brings to mind the classic rock of the 1970's and the grunge movement of the 1990's.
