Jason Stinnett Band also, known as "JSB" has a dynamic blend of today’s Country/Rock with a twist of JSB style to add to the mix for this country act. JSB started with a firefighter who always went to local music shows as a break from the stresses of his job. Jason’s passions have always been singing and writing powerful songs that come from life experience. After years of singing for family and friends he got the push he needed; a jam session was set up with a friend who played the drums. Those sessions continued while adding more musicians to the mix and doing small gatherings for friends and family.
Changes were made along the way as some members had life events occur in which they decided to step away from the band to work on different projects. Jason, taking this without defeat, decided to call his brother- in-law, Michael Bowers. Michael, who had played back in his earlier days, sat in on a couple of private shows and after realizing how much he missed playing, found himself back behind the drums with his sticks in hand.
After several attempts to find the perfect fit for a lead guitar player, Jason happened to have a firefighter buddy come to hear the band play at one of their first public shows at Confused Bar & Grill. Several conversations later, Bill Bain joined the band. With Bain rocking the stage playing unique lead guitar performances, its hard to keep your seat.
With the band complete, the boys went into practice mode for months. At the request of their faithful fans, they soon headed to the studio to produce their debut album, “Meet JSB”. With the help of Hamilton Recording Studios and a lot of sweat, sore fingers and long hours the boys were soon ready to release their initial offering. Worried with only original songs on the CD, Jason thought there would be little interest, but soon after he realized the life struggles he had written about were connected to so many of their fans. “Meet JSB” was met with great response both near and far as the CD sold much quicker than anticipated. With the success of the debut album, show bookings started coming in and requests for private parties and various events were numerous.
The boys knew they were missing a key part of the band. While sitting at home one afternoon Jason remembered a conversation he had with someone when they were in the studio. Without hesitation he placed a call to Randall Hamilton. Jason remembered how well the band and Randall’s personality fit and immediately asked Randall to come sit in with them while they were trying to find a replacement for bass guitar. Randall agreed to on a temporary basis and ever since then JSB fans have enjoyed his hard bass guitar sound and his dancing on stage which gave him his nickname of “Big Sexy”.
JSB has become one of the tightest groups around. They have booked several different venues within the Maryville/Knoxville area and with all the talk around town and help from other local bands, JSB has started to expand their shows to other counties in and out of Tennessee. They have played several large private parties and venues such as Cotton Eyed Joes and Wild Wing Cafe. JSB kicked off the Tornado Benefit for the victims of the Greenback storms in 2011. They were also honored to be a part of the benefit for the Tellico Plains Tornado victims in March of 2012. They took part in the Secret City Festival held in Oak Ridge 2012, played two years for the Rockford Fall Festival in 2010 & 2011 as well as being the Grand Marshalls in the City of Rockford Christmas parade in 2010. They helped kick off the Midnight Madness for a local high school football team in 2011.
JSB are always thankful and appreciative of their faithful fans; they always do their best to bring a show packed full of energy and great times!
