The Band’s History
The band first began as a two piece cover band with no name in the latter months of 2012 playing cover songs in the basement of David the drummer’s house in Parma Ohio. The original members were Dave Jordan on lead guitar/lead vocals and David Jenkins on drums/percussion. The band was not complete as it searched for a bass guitarist and an identity. At the end of 2012, the band found both. The band added Brian Cahill on bass guitar to complete the band’s much needed three piece line up and the band then adopted the name Grunge DNA to make things official. Grunge DNA played their first live show in the early months of 2013 but went through one change shortly after that first show as Dave Jordan left the band on good terms to focus on his family. Grunge DNA was very lucky as the band found two new members in very short order to fill the void and Grunge DNA has been a four piece band ever since. Kevin Harper joined the band as the lead singer and Josh Nichols joined the band as the lead guitarist making the band complete in May of 2013. Grunge DNA has been together ever since and the same four members are still rocking out to the 90’s as of today. From that point, Grunge DNA has added several other associate members to the band and to the Grunge DNA inner circle making the band even stronger as a whole.

The Band’s Live Show Experience
Grunge DNA is a band that enjoys playing music for the fans that love 90’s alternative rock and grunge. It is just that simple. Grunge DNA prides itself on their high energy live show experience as they keep the crowd involved and engaged into the show as much as possible. Grunge DNA has played nearly 300 show in approximately 75 different venues throughout the band’s history. As you can see, we are very experienced at what we do and we always put on a good show. It is highly recommended that you check out a live show so you can see what the band is truly about. YouTube videos are great but they just do not do the band justice. We look forward to seeing you at a show real soon.
