Aggressively knocking down the walls of negativity JAIL CITY ROCKERS, are attacking the nation with positivity, fun and dance. The band was formed in 2012 by Bonilla brothers Andrew (Lead Guitar/Vocals) and Gabriel (Writing/Drums), out of boredom and frustration of the emerging “Punk Scene”. So, through their love of older music they reached way back to the original roots of music, tore down the genres, ripped apart the labels, and Jail City’s raw aggressive sound was born.
So far Jail City Rockers have shared the stage with top names such as… The Business, The Vibrators, and The Damned. They have also played top festivals such as Punk Rock Bowling festival stage in 2019 and played with The Specials, The Undertones, and The Stranglers. Jail City also played the Utah Arts Festival as a headlining act with The Slackers.
With a solid crew of K.C. Avenue on rhythm guitar and Francisco Herrero on bass, they have climbed their way onto the main stage, but they are not stopping there. They have been entertaining many fans over the years with their upbeat Ska/Oi! Rock sound that always leaves you wanting more.
“They (Jail City Rockers) mix everything from Ska and 70’s punk rock to 60’s
R&B and a little bit of 50’s rock-n-roll, with a performance that will definitely get you up and dancing the night away.”

“Jail City Rockers advocates for the acceptance of everyone in the
scene to just have a good ‘fucking’ time.”
“What do you get when you mix ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll, ‘60s R&B, ‘70s punk rock,
and ‘80s hardcore, then add a dash of Oi! and a pinch of ska? You get a recipe for ‘Trouble’ in the form of new PRB (Punk Rock Bowling 2019) recruits, Jail City Rockers! Striving to do something old in a brand-new way. This Ogden, Utah, foursome urge you to think smart, dress sharp and always stay a rebel! —and That’s That.”
