JJ Shreds and The Chompers
JJ Shreds and The Chompers is a new Rock / Funk project from New Orleans’ Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist Jeremy Joyce. The core of the group was formed over many years of playing infamously raucous late night gigs on Frenchmen Street, known around the world for its live music. The alter-ego JJ Shreds was born during the Covid lockdown as a means to provide an identity for the rock and roll persona and a home for Jeremy’s funk instrumentals.
JJ Shreds and The Chompers plan to continuously release dual singles until the completion of a full album, often pairing an instrumental and a vocal tune together.
Look for two more before the end of the year.

About My Little Peace of Mind
The lead single My Little Peace of Mind is a modern ode to South Louisiana, written in a cajun style but performed like the E-Street Band. The track cascades into a complimentary but dueling guitar solo with saxophonist Alex Geddes (Durand Jones) going definitively rock and roll under the expert mixing of Mike Harvey (Samantha Fish). The chorus will have you singing along and wondering whether it’s all about a girl or a piece of land.
The second single, instrumental Da Chomp, takes us into outer space reminding us that JJ Shreds and The Chompers isn’t just a rock band. JJ Shreds is from outer space and The Chompers are mutant alligators. Da Chomp’s cosmic groove is held down by funky bassist Bob Kling (Jovin Webb American Idol) and time keeper extraordinaire Adam Everett (Lena Prima). We definitely know we are in space when Anuraag Pendyal’s psychedelic keyboard solo lifts off!
