"Way out west there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Jonas. He plays the guitar and the ukulele and writes songs and all that. He loves to play in his band with his buddies in front of lots of peeps and he also loves to play to no one too. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced it enough." - The Stranger

Buck-O-Nine is a band I have been with since 1992. We play a mixture of ska, punk, reggae, etc. I think of our sound as a bit of Oingo Boingo influences mixed with good ole punk rock influences such as the The Dead Kennedys with Reggae Stylings thrown in. We have played shows in every venue imaginable across the USA, and around the world. You can find out more about at the Buck O Nine website.

Destrung is a 3 piece band I started more recently to play a different type of music than what Buck-O-Nine plays. Our sound is evolving into something like... if Stephen Malkmus and Gordon Gano saw The Plimsouls in 1983 and decided they wanted to start a band that wrote songs like "A Million Miles Away".

We haven't quite captured that exact sound on yet, BUT...

We have recorded some songs which you can download for free right here.

Or you can pick up a CD and some mp3's here.
