Murphy's Law? Yeah...that's Peaceable Jones. Whenever we get together, whether it's for practice or a show, it's always fast, frenzied and fun. Things break. We had no choice but to title the CD Murphy's Law, after a series of strange experiences during it's recording...like our drummer (who yeah, is a madman anyway) mutilating four snares in the course of a 45 minute performance, our rhythm guitarist watching his favorite Fender fly through the air and smash after a straplock gave way during a guitar spin...or the tubes going out on our bassist' amp minutes before a major competition...we get lost and somehow manage to find our way anyhow...and hell, it's an adventure! We're from California's Central Valley, where nothing ever really happens, so we just decided we would MAKE it happen. Shawn Reynolds (our lead guitarist and vocalist) and Aaron Richardson (our rhythm guitarist and vocalist) formed Peaceable Jones after 4 years with another local band that had a parting of the ways. Jason Christensen signed on immediately to take on the bass position. When Shookah! (Ben Isganitis) joined the band a year later after our first drummer took a walk, it was clear to all of us that we finally had the perfect combination. We got our perfect fit, and sound, and the results have been AWESOME. We love music, we love our fans and most of all we love playing live and getting the crowd involved in the show. We call ourselves a rock band, with heavy punk influences and we DO love to ROCK. We grew up on Green Day, the Bouncing Souls, Social D, Nirvana, Metallica and so many more that you'll probably pick out in our style. We have a lot of original material, but when we play live we also love playing quirky covers that no one else plays from the 50's and 60's all the way up through the current day. You never know what we're gonna do up there but you always know a good time will be had by all. When you look inside the CD, you'll see a ton of pictures of our friends, our families and our fans...from as far away as Korea and Germany. We thank every one of them for helping us get this far, and we especially dedicate it to our friend Aaron W. Simons who lost his life fighting in Iraq in spring 2006...we will never forget you!!! We had a blast recording Murphy's Law and we hope you'll have a blast listening to it. Make sure you contact us and let us know what you think! Rock ON!!
