Bio

PJs My Cousin Too is a Michigan/Illinois fusion of rhythm and funk formed by Michigan cousins Ryan Kramar and Jordan Jackson. The band added Brent Popejoy on bass and Andy Perostianis on drums to complete their funktropic sound in late 2010 and are currently based out of Chicago, IL. The bands interests and influences reflect the diversity of the city they call home and they maintain a goal of not being assigned a categoryjust a good time and a good sound.

Originally from Lake Orion, Michigan, Ryan Kramar is the singer and guitarist for PJs. Ryan has been in a number of bands over the years, including his current other project, Hemi. A laid back, free-spirit, Ryan urges the crowd to rock with PJs through his Kramarisms and mystique.

Jordan Jackson is the guitarist for PJs, originally from Clarkston Michigan. Jordan has been playing and writing songs since high school and helped form the band upon moving to Chicago in 2009. Though originally an acoustic player, Jordan has expanded to electric with PJs. He does not intend to bring his talents to South Beach at this time.

Born and raised in Chicago, Brent Popejoy joined PJs My Cousin Too on bass in 2010. After leaving Chicago for college and grad school, Brent returned to Chicago with his wife, Nikki. He is a long time musician (not just bass!), an avid learner, and a tenacious reader. Brent would like to reiterate that he is not from Michigan.

Mark Walus on drums is the newest member of the band, joining PJ's My Cousin Too as a second project. Mark also plays drums in Valius and brings a dynamic approach to the beats.
