About Government Work
Royse City, TX
Jay was playing Classic Rock music when it was called Top 40, and Johnny learned American Roots music at his uncle's knee. The two friends built their own style for twenty years while raising their families. Keith is a Berklee College of Music alumnus who plays regularly in North Texas and Oklahoma. Rob had learned guitar from Johnny and Jay on the front porch, and went on to study bass at UT Arlington.

"Will you guys quit arranging and play, already?" - Keith
"More cowbell!" - Rob
