Musician

THE JUNKER GEORGES 

If we had to tell you about The Junker Georges, and apparently we do, this is what we’d say: They are an acoustic-based rock/folk duo/tri/quartet, depending on who actually shows up. Founding member Ryan and Todd have been playing music coast to coast since 2003. As primary songwriter and guitarist, Todd is a Level-12 Disney trivia master, coffee connoisseur, and was voted “Most Likely to be Killed by a Pirate.” Ryan (drums/muscle) would much rather be playing for the Flyers, Eagles, or Phillies. He is serving a record 23rd consecutive term as President of the West Roebling Aerosmith fan club. They love Jesus, eating, and hanging out. What else is there? Be on the lookout for special “Mystery Band Members” this weekend for extra bonus points!
