relatively short period of time, JaD (John Stringer, James
Beale, Chris Love and Thomas Panza) has taken the Southeast
music scene by storm: winning WKLS Atlanta (96 Rock)'s Best
Unsigned Band in Atlanta contest (which provided them the
opportunity to play the main stage at Atlanta's '02 Music
Midtown); winning the regional competition for Cabo Wabo's
2003 Battle of the Bands (top 25 unsigned bands in the US -
www.cabowabo.com); finalist in the Jim Beam/Rolling Rock
Battle of the Bands; 4 live appearances on 96 Rock's morning
show; selling 2K+ copies of their debut full-length CD 'Lose
Your Mind'; and performing 100+ live dates across the
Southeast and East Coast. The band is continually building
upon its growing fan base and has crafted one of the most
powerful live shows in the South.
Described by Atlanta's PRICK Magazine (www.prickmag.com) as a
mix between STP, Living Colour, Pearl Jam and Sevendust, JaD's
music combines driving guitars, soulful vocals, and syncopated
bass and drums. The band recently gained the attention of
Atlanta veteran producer Don McCollister (Sister Hazel, Indigo
Girls, Shawn Mullins), who recorded the first two tracks of
their follow-up EP. Check out the band's website for
