Jason and the Scorchers stormed out of Nashville in 1981 and never looked back. With their explosive mix of classic rock ‘n’roll and American roots music they “…singlehandedly rewrote the history of rock ‘n’ roll in the South.” –Rolling Stone Although at heart a pure American rock band, there is an exhibit of them in the Country Music Hall of Fame . In 2008 they won the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance. Their newest release Halcyon Times has been called one the finest records in their history.
       Guitar star Warner E. Hodges and frenetic frontman Jason Ringenberg forge the nucleus of the current lineup as always, but new bassist Al Collins and drummer Pontus Snibb inject a fresh energy into the volatile chemistry. By all accounts, Jason and the Scorchers in the new millennium is as strong and as exciting as any band they have ever fielded in their storied career. As The New Yorker magazine recently said “…now they are one of the best bands, again.”
