Few things speak to the heart of the American soul than some great music. With local, regional, and national bands set to perform - great music and great times will be happening at Operation Honor™ June 14th and 15th at McConnellsburg Bandshell.


Growing up in Southern California, JB was part of the early 2000’s Alt-Rock scene. With the Sunset Strip practically in his back yard, JB and his then band X-Syndrome, played such venues as The Whiskey a go-go, The Roxy, The Troubadour, The Viper Room and many others around SoCal.


With a father that was a rock drummer in the LA music scene in the 80’s, JB naturally gravitated toward the drums. He grew up listening to Rush, The Police, Led Zeppelin, and many other rock bands. He credits his country love to his mothers side of the family as they hail from Mississippi.

JB remembers from a young age loving such country greats as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson. It wasn’t until the mid nineties that JB came into his own with country music loving such artists as Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and many others.


After years of being a front man in rock bands, JB ultimately wanted to become a country artist as that was always in his heart since he was young. He finally got the chance in 2017 when he released his first single “Love Don’t Live Here” and never looked back.


JB has over 80 million streams worldwide with songs such as “Church Pew”, “Tonight”, and “Oceans”.

JB served 12 years in the United States Marine Corps and was ultimately medically retired from injuries sustained in combat operations in Iraq.

Tritt went to the West coast to study music production and artist management after high school.  However, he soon realized where he really wanted to be was on stage performing. Tritt started playing guitar at a young age - getting lessons from his local guitar shop and from his dad. 


In addition to growing up on the road learning from some of country music’s greatest talents from side stage, Tritt also counts Motörhead, Ozzy Osborne and Stone Temple Pilots as some of his musical influences.  He is forging his own path by melding his favorite things and is very clear when he says “I’m doing it MY way.” Tritt believes being “genuine and authentic” in life and music is a top priority.

Georgia native, Tristan Tritt, is a Rock artist, songwriter and musician.  If the name sounds familiar it’s because Tritt is the oldest son of country music legend Travis Tritt, and the brother of country artist Tyler Reese Tritt.  However, Tritt’s heavier Rock driven performances have surprised fans who expect him to lean more towards his family’s Outlaw Country music roots.
