JazzChronic is a fresh, innovative sound in today's world of imitators and haters. JazzChronic is psychedelic, funk freak fusion for the 21st Century. Every member in this dynamic group works together as a team in composing original music that jams from funk, rock n' roll, jazz, blues, world music, and R&B.
Gnarly G is a saxophonist and vocalist who performs with power and soul. The front man of JazzChronic, his charisma and great sense of humor have led many fans to the 'Chronic. G got his stage name from one of his brothers, who stated that he was the bastard cousin of Kenny G. GG is the hardest working man in Athens show business, performing not only with the Chronic, but working with the Half Dozen Brass Band, The Dark Side of the Dead, S2 and other groups in the Athens area.
Leon Campbell is known as the Funky West Coast drummer and brings years of experience and professionalism to JazzChronic. Having performed with a lot of great musicians from the northwestern U.S., Leon knows what to play and what to say in every situation. Leon has created his own style of drumming by fusing all the many styles that he has studied throughout the years. Leon is always playing in the dirty pocket.
Justin Willis is a intuitive, eclectic guitarist who plays many styles of music, is spontaneous and a fast learner. His sick jazz chords stretch the imagination with killa leads and in the pocket grooves with funky fried rhythms. Justin has grown into a guitar monster who always creates new grooves, songs and ideas. Justin also provides lead and background vocals for the Chronic and is JazzChronic's Booking Manager.
Howard B. Stroud is the music scientist. His funk/jazz styled chords and leads in his right and left hands, and willingness to employ special effects with his mighty axe make him a force to be reckoned with. Howard is creative, intuitive and constantly strives for excellence.

Bill creates new jams instantaneously and grooves in and out of bounds. Bill has earned a couple of nicknames since jammin' with the Chronic.
