The J.O.B. was formed by Jim O'Ferrell (acoustic guitar & vocals) and Jason Crawford (electric guitar) when O'Ferrell returned from the War in Iraq in 2008. Originally intended as a vehicle from which to record the powerful songs Jim had written between missions as a soldier during the war, the band has evolved into a compelling alternative rock band with a music portfolio including 4 albums and two Top 40 songs. The band has an energetic modern rock sound with an Americana pulse to which everyone can connect and experience. Rounding out this four-piece group are Len DuPilka on the fretless electric bass and Eric Bandy on the drummer's throne.
Working now on their 5th studio album, The J.O.B.'s portfolio includes two songs that climbed high on radio spin charts in the United States. From their most recent album release, "Messenger" found a large audience with commercial and college radio stations and spent 24 weeks as one of the Top 100 songs played on adult contemporary radio stations in the United States. Another song from the same album, "Feel" was also released as a radio single and spent 26 weeks on the adult contemporary Top 40 Chart in the USA in 2012 and 2013 (FMQB AC Top 100, 2012-2013).
Always learning, developing, and growing artistically, The J.O.B. is a full time, original music project. When not composing new songs or rehearsing an existing set list, the band performs everywhere throughout the region, from saloons to festivals. The J.O.B. has performed on live television, performed live radio studio sessions, and was featured in a television commercial for the Virginia Lottery.
The J.O.B.'s music enjoys airtime on commercial, independent, and internet radio stations worldwide.
