Jon Caspi & The First Gun share their roots with other Asbury Park, NJ notables such as Bruce Springsteen, the Gaslight Anthem, and The Bouncing Souls. Lead singer Jon Caspi is a veteran of the U.S. national college radio scene and this latest project -The First Gun- represents a return to his punk/indie roots. His music has charted on CMJ Top 100, and has appeared on TV, MTV, in films, and on stage in musical theater productions. He has performed with Bruce Springsteen and opened for many international acts. Drummer Jimmie Mizell has played drums for stars such as Rob Thomas, Jason Mraz, and Southside Johnny, and has also played percussion with Springsteen. Not traditional indie/punk rock creds but this dude can play! Doug Lane, a well known producer/musician in NJ joins the band on rock solid bass. The trio released their first album, Strange Situation, with a sold out show in an Asbury Park theater in early October, 2010, then released their second , The Little Ones, which was produced by Pete Steinkopf (guitarist for the legendary punk outfit, The Bouncing Souls) in November 2011. Their latest release just came out in April 2013, called Sucker on the new Brighton Bar Records.
