The JD s were formed in 2008, when Craig, Rob and Andy discovered a mutual interest in the guitar. They soon joined forces and began performing acoustic sets and running open Mic Nights in the local pubs and bars in Nottingham.
In 2009 Paul Squire (the talented young Sax player) joined the band and they made the transition from a acoustic 3 piece to a Skanking 4 piece electric band.
Armed with a great set list of Ska, Rock, Funk, Soul and Latin classics the band has built a reputation for providing great entertainment and above all a great night out.
