Jon Griffin and The LightFighters propulsive sound will jolt you out of your seat and serve you up with the feel-good, rhythm-drenched sounds of yesterday. Smashing out blistering guitar haymakers, grooving bass lines, and deep rooted back beats, the band creates their own brand of gritty rock and roll and soulful blues rock flavored with stellar vocal harmonies and lead vocals that echo past Mississippi Delta bluesmen and swaggering rock and roll heroes.

Over the past ten years, Jon Griffin and The LightFighters have built a considerable following from the pure primal energy of their live performances and "never say die" attitude. One of the hardest working independent bands in the business today, they've garnering praise from industry insiders and fans alike.
