Jon Wayne And The Pain
Jon Wayne And The Pain
Midwest reggae rockers Jon Wayne and The Pain have been carving a sizable niche in the reggae-rock genre. Their sophomore release “Follow Through” builds upon the success of the group’s self-titled debut album, once again showcasing their unique mix of reggae, rock, and dub that fans can’t get enough of. Jon, Teeto and Chuckie are the ultimate coast-to-coast road warriors having played an average of 20 shows per month for the last 3 years. Their live shows are a powerful display of the trio’s “Reggae-Tronic Dub”. The band creates a unique psychedelic Reggae sound by blending Reggae-Rock, Roots, Pop, and Ska with evolving bass heavy tangents of electronic dub.

The new Jon Wayne and The Pain

“If your looking for an album that blends Sublime, Long Beach Dub Allstars, and Slightly Stoopid rolled into one then look no further.”

An American dub and reggae connoisseur previously based out of Hong Kong, The Groove Thief [TGT] is now living in Denver, Colorado, USA. Including the influential Pomegranate club residency (an A/V collaboration with ▶▶△) underground dance mecca oma, TGT promoted countless events featuring local & international artists while in Hong Kong. Here in Colorado with his Pomegranate Hi Fi sound system, he’s organized backyard boogies, guerrilla pop-ups, and sponsored collaborations, plus he’s a co-coordinator of the Reggae On Da Fax: Irie Fridays weekly, Denver’s only night celebrating roots reggae and sound system culture.

As a DJ, he’s supported numerous international artists including Cojie [Mighty Crown], Iration Steppas, Mungo’s Hi Fi, and Tippa Irie. Since 2011 he has released dozens of mashups and over 50 mixes – including guest spots for Bass Music China, Dub Temple Records, Dub.com, Monkey Radio India, NiceUp, and “The Saturday Skank” (RTHK Radio 3). His 4:20 mix for 2017 has been particularly well-received, with over 20k plays. Since moving, TGT has also found a home at community radio station KGNU, regularly hosting the “Reggae Transfusion” and “Dub Palace” shows.

TGT co-founded the Pomegranate Sounds label in 2017, a creative endeavor with ▶▶△. In December, he released his debut production work on the label with collaborator Scotty McD: the Winter Showcase EP. The seven-track is a dub-drenched journey from hiphop through to downtempo and features guests Hijinx and Mama Kush.

An experienced, versatile, and well-regarded journalist, TGT diligently maintains his own website dedicated to In-Depth Coverage of Underground Sounds, specifically dub, reggae, and local music: TheGrooveThief.com. From 2014-2016 he wrote dozens of clubbing articles for Time Out Hong Kong magazine, and he still regularly covers the reggae scene for NiceUp. TGT’s recently added a new role, editor of the Global Reggae Charts, and has also been developing his own interview series: #TGTfeature.

Whether you need a featured DJ, quality music between bands, or a full sound system setup, TGT is ready to tastefully select from across the dub/reggae spectrum and beyond. Please email TGT (TheGrooveThief@gmail.com) directly for booking, contact, or submissions for radio play.
