- Eric “Jailhouse” Von Herzen on harmonica, recording credits include Social Distortion: Eric Jailhouse Von Herzen got his nickname directly from Mike Ness of Social Distortion...for obvious reasons going back to his younger, wilder days. Von Herzens harmonica swings from dark and melodic, to a full steam rollin' freight train thatll knock you on your ass and keep on going. Social D album credits include ~ Coulda Been Me, Drug Train & Ghost town Blues.
- Brent Harding on bass, current member of Social Distortion: Harding joined Social Distortion in November 2004. His first recording with the band was re-recordings of their older material and "Far Behind", which appear on their 2007 Greatest Hits album. He also appeared on the band's seventh studio album Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, which was released in January 2011. This would be the band's first proper studio album with Harding. Prior to joining Social Distortion, Harding was the bass player for Mike Ness during his Cheating at Solitaire tour and recorded with Ness on his second solo offering Under the Influences. His previous bands include Deke Dickerson And The Ecco-Fonics, The Eugene Edwards Band, The Lucky Stars, The Sleepwalkers and The What-Me Worry? Jug Band.

- Renaud Lesire on bass on European shows, current member of the Keith Dunn Band: His feeling and approach to guitar, big tone, altered chords and powerful beat, is essential to the overall sound of the group. He provides a strong bottom punch while weaving a smooth carpet of rhythm that is the foundation for the songs.
Motorgun Hotel
Burnin' Groove
Burnin' Groove
Formed in 1989 or thereabouts, this band played backyard kegger parties at their friends houses until the friends came of age, that's when BG's illustrious career as a bar band started to take shape. Somewhere around 1991 original lead guitar player Markus Seitz left the band and the OC to attend college. Markus' style of playing was signature to the sound the band had begun to forge, and his departure left a giant pair of shoes to fill. Fortunately, it wasn't long until veteran OC punk rock guitarist Frank Agnew was recruited to play lead guitar and things started looking up for the fledgling band. Frank's virtuoso guitar chops brought a whole new flavor to Daren Carlson's unique style of songwriting, thus marking the beginning of the band's heyday. Frank stayed with the band for a couple of years as it built it's local following and enjoyed a prolific period of songwriting. Like all good things, Frank's tenure on lead guitar came to an end sometime in 93 when he and his future wife, Libby, were recruited to join Rule 62 with Brian Coakley of Cadillac Tramps fame. The band once again found itself without a lead guitar player. After a period of trying out what seemed to be a hundred guitar players, Frank came forward and notified his former band mates that he had found his own replacement, a kid named Andrew Galvez who had been studying guitar under Frank. Andrew had absorbed Frank's playing style like a sponge, so he was a natural fit and remains the band's lead guitarist to this day. Once again, BG was a complete unit and set out on a mission to play wherever it could for whoever would listen. This approach worked well for the band as it built it's fanbase...people started showing up in respectable numbers to see them. At some point after Andrew had been with the band for awhile, it was decided Daren would relinquish rhythm guitar duties so he could focus on being a frontman. His older brother, Jered Carlson, was brought in to fill the open guitar slot.
The Cornfed Project
The Cornfed Project
Jimmy Carter was on the television, sweating and stammering, trying to explain the gas crisis and skyrocketing inflation. Out behind the barn, 14-year-old Cornfed (Matt Wheeler) was busy building a drum kit out of corncobs, hog bones, and old whiskey barrels. Skynyrd blared from the 8-track in his daddy's Ford. Little Cornfed learned to bang out primitive rhythms, but soon grew bored and looked for other ways to scratch his musical itch. So he stole a banged-up acoustic guitar from his second cousin/girlfriend, hotwired a tractor, and headed west.

Half a world away in a tiny village in Uzbekistan, a teenager named Christopher Shinkus ran screaming down an unpaved alley. An old woman in a shawl chased him carrying a gnarled stick. She was surprisingly agile, her feet seeming to skim lightly above the path. But Chris got away and kept running until he woke up nearly two decades later in Venice, CA. Some say the curse she put on him persists to this day. All we know for sure is that Chris will never lick frogs and wander naked into strangers' houses again. Probably.

Little Nathan Walker sat in his mother's lap. He was 16 and his mom was smokin' hot, so he just liked sitting in her lap. So what? Who's to judge? At night he'd lock himself in his room and doodle on a secret notepad he kept under his mattress. Interestingly, the sketches resembled elaborate gear endorsement deals and outlandish performance riders. Nate had always been precocious, and we love him for it to this day.

On the day Jeff Moses played his first rock show, the last witch put to death in Salem was cut down from the gallows. As he packed up his borrowed gear and climbed into the back seat of Huey's smelly Corolla, he wondered what fate awaited him for his sins. And then the phone rang. Cornfed needed a guitar player.

That's about it, really. These days The Cornfed Project rocks the balls off audience members every chance they get. Which isn't too often because who wants their balls rocked off? Regardless, Cornfed (vocals, guitar), Shinkus (bass, vocals), Nate (drums), and Moses (guitar) stay busy driving sonic nails through eardrums, melting faces, and turning fans of hard rock into fans of The Cornfed Project. And you, fucker, are next.
