Do you remember when rock and roll was fun? Junkfood certainly does, serving up big, unapologetic rock tunes with loud guitars and sing-along hooks so huge you could hang a side of beef on them. The third release from Junkfood, 'Mighty', was produced by singer Bart Harris (Released in late 2008). Mixed by grammy award winning Jeff Juliano (Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Paramore, Lifehouse, etc.) This is the best Junkfood to date....PERIOD. Junkfood regularly performs for a broad range of fans in a wide range of venues up and down the East coast. From family friendly festival crowds, to summer beach vacationers, to rowdy college bars - Junkfood has entertained them all. Although primarily known for original music, Junkfood is not afraid to play your favorite covers from the 80's to today. As their many fans will attest, Junkfood subscribes to the old school tradition that no matter how much you enjoy the CD, you've really got to experience the band live to fully appreciate their talent. All the members are road-tested and experienced live performers having collectively shared the stage with the likes of SMASHMOUTH, SUGAR RAY, STYX, JIMMY BUFFETT, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, FUEL, VERTICAL HORIZON, PAT MCGEE BAND, EVERCLEAR, TOAD THE WET SPROCKET, THE PRESIDENTS OF THE USA, and JIMMIE'S CHICKEN SHACK, just to name a few. Junkfood's live show is a high-energy party, making them one of the most sought after bands in the DC/Metro Area. The buzz they have generated has them headlining the major venues in the region. Since being voted 'BEST COVER BAND IN THE DC AREA' by On Tap Magazine in March 2003, 'BEST LOCAL BAND' by the Washington Post Reader's Poll in 2005 and 'BEST LOCAL BAND' in the Washington City Paper Best Of 2008, Junkfood has performed in front of thousands of fans at high profile events such as the annual Celebrate Fairfax Festival and HiBall Events Mid-Atlantic Shamrock Festival and Blocktoberfest. Some quotes from the industry: 'Junkfood is a band with no illusions about itself. The music the Fairfax foursome makes has little nutritional value, but it sure is delicious. That makes Junkfood just about the perfect bar band. There is no artistic pretension or forced emo moping, just good-time, high-energy, well-played rock-and-roll.' - C. Woodrow Irvin, The Washington Post 'Junkfood may be the Washington DC area's biggest party band-the former cover band makes regular appearances at the biggest events around town. And it isn't surprising; vocalist Bart Harris nails his melodies, with a bit of a growl similar to some of the late '90s radio gods... It isn't challenging or complex, and it isn't meant to be. Junkfood knows the role that they want to play: this is music intended as a soundtrack to your night out, for throwing back beers at a bar with friends or soaking in the sun on a beach...' - Chris Connolly, On Tap Magazine 'If you're in the DC Metro area, seize the opportunity to see this band live before they get too big.' - Manish Patel, The Music Writer.
