JC - Jonathan Christopher Gawron

I was introduced to music at a young age. My father would play drums while my sister Annette sang and played the piano. I initially played the piano, and at the age of twelve I began to play the guitar. I was hooked when I first touched the electric guitar. My first guitar Epiphone Les Paul Classic Heritage Cherry Sunburst and the Fender G-Dec amplifier was the best thing ever to me at that time.

I took music lessons at the Mattioli School of Music and Art in Saint Pete Beach, Florida.
In addition I took extra guitar lessons from a great local musicians like Chris Walker from Hot Sun Quartet, Joe Koltay from Cellfish Band and Joe Ishikawa from Blue Lightning Band. I constantly practiced and performed at local clubs and restaurants. I also play at various jam sessions with other great musicians like Mike Calzone, Lee Pons and Al Razz.

Music became my life. I began to write my own songs and music. Currently I play with the Civil Action Band where we play our own compositions at various local stages like State Theatre, Local 662 Club, Gasoline Alley and many more... (see events calendar).
My greatest influences are Slash, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Lou Reed. My favored bands are Guns N' Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, Led Zeppelin and many more...

About Rock and Roll

Rock and Roll (often written as rock & roll or rock 'n' roll) is a genre of popular music that originated and evolved in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s, primarily from a combination of the blues, country music and gospel music. Though elements of rock and roll can be heard in country records of the 1930s, and in blues records from the 1920s, rock and roll did not acquire its name until the 1950s. In the earliest rock and roll styles of the late 1940s and early 1950s, either the piano or saxophone was often the lead instrument, but these were generally replaced or supplemented by guitar in the middle to late 1950s. The beat is essentially a boogie woogie blues rhythm with an accentuated backbeat, the latter almost always provided by a snare drum. Classic rock and roll is usually played with one or two electric guitars (one lead, one rhythm), a string bass or an electric bass guitar, and a drum kit.
