Occupation : Sound Engineer / Driver / Crew / Whatever Else
L.J. was born a poor child of Russian immigrants that arrived in the U.S. via UFO in the late 1800's. We don't belive that at all, but he insists that it's true. No one is sure what the L or the J stand for, including him. Seriously. L.J. is happily married, but unlike Larry and John, L.J. hates long walks in the park, hates poetry, and enjoys hunting Yaks in the Smoky Mountains with a slingshot. L.J. is a former NFL quarterback, and went on to win last years Superbowl for the New Orleans Saints. But, due to type-o by the Associated Press and NFL, Drew Brees was actually credited for all of L.J.'s hard work. After several months of therapy he moved on, and realized that multi million dollar football contracts and endorsements wasn't really his thing. He used some of his football money that he had stored in his piggy bank to buy a microphone, 2 - 12" speakers, and a Cerwin Vega P.A. head. He soon hit the wedding circuit as a DJ, crankin out the best of yesterday and todays dance hits. After he was attacked by Bridezilla, and thrown in a dumpster, he realized that wasn't the answer either. It wasn't until Larry was online late one night watching reruns of Sex And The City that he came accross an ad for a sound guy. He was surprised that a band as awesome as JUNIOR would advertise on the Lifetime channel website. But, the band is really sensitive, and likes sensitive employees. So, long story short, L.J. flew to Baltimore, JUNIOR picked him up via hot air balloon, and the rest is history.
Side Note: At 5:30 P.M. August 27 The NFL called the world headquarters at JUNIOR LLC begging L.J. to come back. They also said they would offer the rest of JUNOR and their crew starting positions in the NFL. So, the future of L.J., JUNIOR, and everyone else involved is still unknown..

John is a recent college graduate from Pennsylvania with a degree in nuclear engineering, but figured that working for a rock band would be a better move. John was the guy in college that stole your girlfriend. It appears that his entire family works in the entertainment industry, and John will more than likely be one of the most powerful men in music industry if he survives the tour he is currently on.
As seen in this photo, John is a thinker, and likes to ponder the meaning of life over a cup of Joe. He is a jovial guy, and does a spot on impersonation of legendary Chicago Cubs announcer Harry Carry. It makes us giggle. John also trained for 4 years in Hong Kong as a professional sushi roller. Once he realized there was no future in that he set his sites on joining the women's US Olympic Curling team. He was in charge of properly storing the rolling thing and brooms. That didn't last long either.
Long story short, John is where he belongs. He'll steal yo woman, he likes movies, and enjoys TV dinners by the light of a candle. If you are a girl, he'll talk to you. If you are a guy he'll fight you, if you aren't awesome, he won't hang out with you.

Larry is a single guy, who enjoys long walks in the park, and poetry slams at the local coffee shop. He has a pet giraffe named Winnie, and often reminisces about his days as a Navy Seal. After spending years studying Jujitsu in Japan, Larry decided to try his hand at rock-n-roll. He figured it's gotta be a better paying job than anything else he's tried in life. So, Larry surfed the internets, and found an online class called "Learn how to tour manage over night". Shortly thereafter, he was tour managing. All of his dreams had fallen into place. He was now in charge of trying to control one of the most divalicious bands in the world. BUT, when he saw he had his own bunk, he knew they cared deeply about his feelings, and accepted him as one of their own.
Larry recently tried his hand at dancing. Actually he was forced to go onstage and do his own little dance called The Larrollton. It was a hit, and he soon started signing autographs, and even introducing the band at shows. Rumor has it that he has been in talks to portray Burt Reynolds in Smoky And The Bandit 4. He's also eyeballing Simon's vacant seat in American Idol.

- If there are any tpos its because Steve is driving, and we are on some backroad in either Virginia or North Carolina. Or at least I think we are.
- We are headed to the University Of South Carolina for a sow Tuesday.
- It's Hot here too. But nowhere near as hot as Texas and Louisiana.
- We spent a week in Washington DC at a sweet resort hotel. Saw lot's of sites. It was nice.. And hot,,
- We have Monday off. Thats nice, because we have been going solid for several days.
- We're starting to realize that living on an RV is harder than we expected. The whole having to grab your clothes out of the suitcase that is in a compartment under the bus gets a little old. BUT, the AC works now and it is like a meat locker back here in the bunks. So, we sleep very well.
- That's about it.

Ok, so far I don't really remember much because we've had little sleep. But i know the shows rocked. Made us some new fans, an had the greatest road crew ever in Aberdeen. 50 U.S. soldiers helped tear down and load up everything. It was awesome, and they keep calling us "sir". I also learned that when hundreds of soldiers yell "HOOAH" it sounds awesome. So, we did a little version of "I Got A Feeling" by the Blackeyed Peas, an instead of saying Oooohh Oooohh during the chorus they all said Hoooooooaaaaaahhhh. Hard to explain, but it was awesome.
Anyhoo, not a lot of interesting stuff to say yet because we're only 2 shows in. I'm sure it is going to get more interesting as time passes. And, I realized that we definitely need a reality TV show. We seriously are characters. No, seriously..
Ok, That's all I got folks. I'm tired. Holla!!

the picture below, we are overwhelmed with our new, aerodynamic
toilet, complete with a spray gun, kinda like the ones on a sink!!

So, for those that don't know, we are about to head out on tour for w WHILE. That's right folks, JUNIOR has come back from the dead. We've got a new tour, a new manager, and we've all got gas. So basically, nothing has changed. I know you are all still asking yourself, "is JUNIOR still the greatest band ever?" The answer is yes, and that was a stupid question and you should be ashamed.
SO, with all that said, keep checking back here, subscribe to our blog, and we'll see ya on the road.
