j and the 9s are a hard hitting, glam punk rock experience from brooklyn, new york breeding together rock and roll riffs, the raw sound and agility of punk, lyrical spontaneity, glam visuals, a rock flute, and a very interactive stage show.
often referenced as a mix of some of the most influential rockers of the 70's: led zeppelin, iggy pop and the runaways, j and the 9s strip back the beast that music once was: true rock n’ roll that is not so politely thrown at you on a dripping, glittering platter.
