About Joecephus and The George Jonestown Massacre

Blazing a trail out of Memphis, Tennessee the Dixie Fried Rock band Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre (JGJM) are on a roll. At the age of fifteen Joey Killingsworth aka Joecephus began his professional music career one night playing drums -- backing up his father, the venerable rockabilly legend Bobby “Bo Jack” Killingsworth, Jumpin’ Gene Simmons (known for his novelty hit ‘Haunted House’) and Carrie Lewis who was pregnant with Jerry Lee’s son at the time (!). In the 90s he began playing around Memphis regularly with the band Grendel Crane and at the turn of the century began working steadily with another rockabilly legend Eddie Bond. In the 2000's he played guitar for a run of shows with Black Oak Arkansas and has also backed Shooter Jennings, JD Pinkus (Butthole Surfers/Melvins) and 80's metal legend Thor.

He carries the lessons learned on the road with Bond to this day. Now, as leader,
guitarist and frontman for JGJM, who have been referred to as “sounding like if Black Oak Arkansas grew up listening to Motorhead”, he keeps up a workmanlike pace of touring and
recording with the band. The band has made nine studio releases over the past sixteen years and can be heard regularly on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. The charity albums he has co-produced with Dik LeDoux have featured a stunning array of guest artists including Alice Cooper, Keith Morris, Kim Thayil, J. Mascis, Jello Biafra, Neil Fallon (Clutch), King Buzzo (Melvins), Mick Harvey and Warren Ellis (both of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and dozens of other recognizable names.

As a live act the band have shared the stage with artists as diverse as Johnny Winter, Shooter Jennings, Blackberry Smoke, Mike Watt, Supersuckers, The Obsessed, MC50 and many more.
Joecephus will be joined by Dik LeDoux and Rudy Forster for the 2024 March tour.
