Jaded Aerosmith began one day in early February 2015 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida as a bright idea by Guitarist Pete Lauria (Brad Whitford) after noticing that his main street band singer and fellow transplanted Bostonian Tommy Braga really loved imitating Steven Tyler during their shows. With the lineup set, the band quickly devised a set list that encompassed enough of the 45-year history of AEROSMITH to be representative of the actual experience of seeing the band live on any given night. Jaded Aerosmith hits the stage at 6:30PM on Saturday.
“We have, through the study of the music being reproduced, discovered a genuine love for this first truly American Rock and Blues answer to The British Invasion's Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, and feel that shines through in each of our performances. Most importantly, we are about having a good time with good music and good friends,” states Braga.
One of the most sought after Drummers of this Generation deftly playing any genre, David "Jody" Hill is the C.E.O. and founder of his band Deep Fried Funk. Jody has earned himself 3 Grammy nominations with Joss Stone for the album "Mind, Body & Soul" and has had numerous television appearances.
