JonnyX and the Groadies (commonly written as JX:ATG) is a Portland, Oregon Cybergrind band. They consist of "JonnyX" (vocals/beatbox), "Nasty Travis" (guitar, drum machine programming, lyrics), "DJ Invisible Touch" (8-string bass) and "Professor Romagna" (master control).[1] JonnyX's music usually contains high tempo drum beats, heavily distorted guitar at high tempo, and bass playing medium-tempo semi-melodic riffs. The metal malaise is sometimes augmented with sinister synthesizer sounds.

Live Concerts[edit]

JonnyX and the Groadies only play all ages venues. Their live shows require much preparation because of their signature array of black lights, strobe lights, lasers, and fog machines.[2] Professor Romagna's setup contains a wide array of electronics that has occasionally blown circuits.
The members of JX:ATG play in an impressive and ever-expanding collection of spandex suits, and other outrageous costumes such as the memorable Santa suits.
