John David & the Jerks are a Minneapolis based, pond-hockey loving, indie rock/Americana band active since 2008. Said to sound like a fusion of Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and the Jayhawks; John David & the Jerks cultivate the great song writing process and are influenced by The Band, Neil Young and The Rolling Stones. The Jerks have released two full-length records, 2008's Present & Voluntary & 2010's Letters from America (recorded at the famed Pachyderm Studio, Canon Falls, Minnesota). They have since released multiple singles and are set to release their 3rd record in August 2017. Their latest single "I'll Die of Grief" was featured on the "City Pages - Local Frames: 5 Must-See Minnesota Music Videos", as well as Minnesota Public Radio The Current's "Friday Five" top Minnesota Music Videos.
