Ska and Soul band from the Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California area.

They formed in 1981 as part of the embryonic L.A. mod revival, after being inspired by the ska revival/punk rock band The Boxboys. Since some couldn't play instruments, they either hastily learned, or became vocalists. The original lineup included: Kevin Long (vocals), Chuck Askerneese (vocals), Terry Ellsworth (rhythm guitar), Clyde Grimes (guitar), Rob Lampron (drums), Herman Askerneese (bass) and Jerry Miller (vocals, timbales).
Joe Normal & The Anytown'rs

Rising out of the factories of "Anytown, New Jersey" and arriving in the alleyways of East Los Angeles, Joe Normal formed his explosive new band The Anytown'rs with Bassist Tony Babylon, Drummer Tony Snow, and Guitarist Michael “Lucky” Lockwood. Their combination of both East & West Coast attitude and finesse, is a lethal dose of power and pop that is winning over all that lies between Joisey and DTLA, and ANYTOWN where common people crave authentic Rock n Roll.

Joe Normal & The Anytown'rs effortlessly blend the melodic sensibilities and brilliance of classic British Pop, the roots and urgency of early American Rock and Roll, with the heart and insight of a Singer-Songwriter. Songs and sounds are favorably compared by the press to the likes of Paul Westerberg & The Replacements, The Who, and even Paul McCartney.

Live shows are a bonding experience between band and audience as Joe spins his stories and strives to make a personal connection with fans in every size venue.

Songs address the themes of working class life and impart a sense of hope to keep going for your dreams, to never give up in-spite of your struggles.

The band's collective resume and history includes work and recordings with a who's who of rock heavyweights... Dramarama, Stiv Bators, Izzy Stradlin, Aimee Mann, Jon Brion, Sylvain Sylvain, Sammy Hagar, Howard Stern, and the list goes on.

A band that is making an unprecedented impact in an industry that has driven Rock & Roll music underground, this Hollywood Best Kept Secret is going nationwide... Are you ready to meet us in ANYTOWN USA?
