JUDI is the result of a lot of years of hard work and musical dedication by Jay Gruber. Jay has been playing music longer than some of the guys in the band have been alive. Jay created JUDI several years ago, and the lineup has changed over the years. It's tough to keep a consistent lineup in a small town band as good musicians come and go. We feel like we have a very solid group of guys now though and are ready to showcase our talents.
Jay met Cody Cline in the summer of 2010. JUDI needed a bass player and Cody was brought in on the bass. Brandon Grogan joined the lineup on the fall of 2011. JUDI needed a new drummer and Brandon filled the bill excellently. Brandon also brought an incredible vocal talent to the band. While other band members sing a few of JUDI's songs, Jay and Brandon split most of the load on vocals. Recently, JUDI brought in Abel Nolan on the bass and moved Cody to lead guitar. Abel has been playing guitar and bass for years and is an excellent bass player. JUDI also recently brought in Mark Abitia to add some saxophone sound to some of the songs. Mark is also a very experienced musician and adds a unique sound to the songs we play, as well as a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
