The Jinxbreakers was formed in 2006 as a project trio, forming the foundation for a band following the path of the progressive West Coast swing/blues bands.

The choice of material has its roots in the early R&B of Louis Jordan, T-Bone Walker, and follows the footsteps of James Harman, William Clarke, Hollywood Fats, and other “Left Coast” musicians. Add a few jazz standards re-arranged in the style, and you have the Jinxbreakers.

Members are Jon Pederson, guitar; Jonathan Gaetke, bass; Curtis Blake, harp; Dave Larson Drums; Greg “peewee” Fagan, sax; and guest appearances by Vince Hyman, vibes.
