The Jonathan Garcia Band

Our passion for our music goes beyond the songs we write and play, but the experience our fans take with every live show. Our music comes from the heart, though it might not always be a life lesson, it does move the soul. We grew up listening to bands that don’t just sell numerous of records, but bring a live experience that is unique to anything they have heard before. Began playing for anyone who would lend an ear- evolving into a seasoned class act finding comfort within the River City area that have embraced us as one of the new upcoming Americana acts around. It is with this that we ask you to take a chance on us. Come out to our shows and we will show you what we feel is a homegrown work of art.
