Just Hits / Bio

"JUST HITS" is an all-original, band from San Antonio, Texas created in 2011 by Rey Perez and Robert Font. Rey, who had convinced Robert to sing after hearing him harmonize in his freestyles. Soon after, via Craigslist, they met Noah Shegrud. Noah was originally a guitarist but found his niche with the band on the bass, having an extreme knack for learning fast and playing by ear. Travis Wilkerson, an experienced drummer who had played in everything from funk to rock bands and added a unique aspect to the band. In late 2011, an unique style of music was born. Due to their many different backgrounds, the four quickly unraveled a new intriguing sound. Combined with Rey alternative, crisp guitar sound, Noah's free flowing bass, Travis funk and rock drumming style, and the profound soulful lyrics of Robert a style of music was revealed called Rock & Soul. The band started gigging regularly all over San Antonio and eventually Travis introduced them to Marcus Barber, an accomplished saxophone & keyboard player. Marcus simply brought a whole new dynamic to the bands' style.

Only a year after the band's creation, JUST HITS took home The San Antonio Raw Awards "Musicians Of The Year" award and is currently nominated for 5 San Antonio Music Awards .They have played many venues around Texas, including the annual Tonyc Summer Jam, Scarefest, and SXSW. Since the band has been together, the music just keeps on flowing. Together, they've retained a musical force that cannot be stopped and will continue to grow and expand. There is a burning passion for music that drives "Just Hits" to never be satisfied with the "status quo" but to keep forging new aspects and influences into their music. The band would like to thank all their family, friends, and of course, THE FANS for all their support and success thus far. We continue to enjoy ourselves while making music and sharing it with the world. If you'd like more information, check us out at: www.facebook.com/JustHits.SA or on Twitter: @WeAreJustHits
