Rock and roll is more than what we do – it’s who we are
We love rock and roll. We love to listen to it, we love to perform it, and we love to write it. When we get onstage we want to make sure you move around and bounce up and down. We want to help you forget the work week, and get you into a rock and roll state of mind.
Our original new music has a style that lets you sing and groove along. Influence comes from the seventies and eighties as well as new rock and alternative bands from the nineties and present day. Original songs are accompanied by great lyrics and baritone vocals.
When we play live, we’re a force to be reckoned with. Our gigs take our audiences on a musical journey that incorporates many different elements and styles, all while providing good, solid, guitar-based rock and roll. We believe in always putting on the best show possible for our fans and audiences, and guarantee that you’ll come away smiling. Best of all, we believe in being professional, friendly, and laid-back. We always enjoy seeing new and familiar faces at each gig.
More than music…it’s a way of life.
Formed in 2006 by band members Craig Bauman, Keith Mason, and Jeremy Patterson, the Sunset Junkies released our self-titled debut on May 30, 2008. Joe Swora joined the Sunset Junkies in 2009 as our lead guitarist and our second album titled “Therapy” was released in May 2011. Keith Mason left the band in 2015 and was replaced by Mike Rogers.
We’ve played in a number of venues, including clubs, county fairs, large concerts, and private gatherings. You can catch us on Lima’s local radio stations and online. Our inspiration comes from a wide variety of music, drawing from styles like hard rock, reggae, country, blues, funk, and more. You’ll hear a little of everything in our music.
All of our members have prior experience with established groups and are dedicated musicians committed to making great music. You can find our albums in hard-copy or online through sites such as iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby. We’d love for you to join us at some of our upcoming shows, or book us for your next event. We guarantee you’ll have a great time!
