Jaycie Ward and Nathaniel Bruner were jamming together on guitar and violin, respectively, and Rafael Gonzalez joined in with his guitar. When Vic the bartender took notice of the instant chemical connection the three made, he immediately commanded them to start a band - and thus Jaycie and the Beards was born. Jaycie and Rafael are self-taught musicians who draw their inspiration from real life and use music as a vessel for self expression. Nathaniel has been playing the violin since age four and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance. The masterful speed and precision he plays with perfectly complements the smooth, soulful vocal harmonies created by Jaycie and Rafael.
There is an electricity in the air that surrounds the group and the horizon is dotted with ever-increasing opportunities to shine. Come to Joe’s Underground on August 12th to see for yourself.
