Classic Rock Cover Band

The Cheecharones is a power-quatro, featuring four highly accomplished musicians and good friends. With a combined 50+ years experience between the four, Matt Schlosser (vocals/guitar), Josh Benz (vocals/drums), Adam Bucciarelli (vocals/saxophone/keyboard) and John Wolfe Compton (vocals/bass) play from the heart and keep the energy (and the party) going strong. As a mainly Classic Rock cover band, it’s their focus to ensure each song is played accurately, and with just the right attitude – ensuring each song is special and comes alive. They are organized, professional, always on-time and very easy going and easy to work with.

The Story.

Originally from the pastoral expanses of Chesterfield, Missouri, John Wolfe Compton moved to San Diego’s golden shores with a little less than half nothing in his pockets. Some tough years followed. Very tough. But it was during those lean years that JWC worked odd jobs and honed his craft. His bedroom was the laboratory and open mics were the testing ground. What song would make a bar patron stop mid-sentence and wheel around to see who was on stage?

Seeking to combine the genuine feeling of blues, the depth of folk and the raw power of hip-hop a distinct style was brewing – but like all good brews this one would take time. And to be honest, the formula isn’t perfect yet – but hey – isn’t that part of the fun? JWC now lives in the Ocean Beach community of San Diego. He enjoys music, puns, surfing, traveling and craft brew (like all good hearted San Diegans).
