"If you took Southern Rock mixed with a modern-day edginess and add a dash of good ol' Midwest and a bunch of originality, then you've got JT & the Gunslingers, one of the regions fastest growing bands."
~ Megan Kennedy, Post Bulletin
JT & the Gunslingers, based out of Minneapolis, MN, explain they have a completely unique style all their own that is Midwest influenced Country music with a Southern Rock edge. It’s been described as a mix of country, rock, and southern rock – some fans simply refer to their unique sound as “Gunslinger” music. Since their first show in May of 2014, JT & the Gunslingers have been honing a unique sound that they attribute to their roots - being raised in the Midwest. JT & the Gunslingers attack the stage with a veracity that is seldom seen in clubs and venues across the US and they bring decades of experience to the stage....
In their first year together in 2014 they opened for Nashville acts Jake McVey, Craig Morgan, and Montgomery Gentry.
