Armed with an explosive country rock sound and high caliber lyrics, the boys of Johns Guns stand ready to shoot the boredom off of the rowdy fans of Texas music as well as any audiophile alike. Formed in College Station, Texas, and solidified on the banks of the Guadalupe River, this great band from Aggieland was raw potential if nothing else. Thanks to a couple years of experience in the emerging College Station and Fort Worth music scenes and the dedication of loyal fans, the potential has grown into a serious band that continues to make waves in the local and regional scenes.
With the release of their debut record “Buy Sell Trade” produced by Texas’ “most fiercely independent artist” Phil Pritchett, Johns Guns is poised for expanding their reach into newer regions of the Texas scene. With songs penned by front man Nick Verzosa, guitarist and harmony vocalist BJ Wilson and bassist Shawn McGee, this album brings honest and heartfelt songwriting that gives each track the potential to carve a solid niche for this band in any of the critical Texas markets they perform in. The spirited melodies and insightful lyrics meld together with their tight musicianship to create a one of a kind and BIG sound. Supported by standout lead guitarist Robb Dies face melting guitar licks and the heart thumping beats created by drummer Brad Roberson, this record promises to be a mainstay in fans collections.
It is no mistake that first timers to a Johns Guns show quickly become fans, this up and coming band makes it a point to have new people singing and dancing (and drinking) every night. The true test of any bands mettle is their performance in live shows, and with their debut album to support, Johns Guns is fast becoming that band that fans can’t help but want to see again and again. Bang Bang.
