                                                                       SAN DIEGO'S PREMIER COUNTRY BAND
   2010 WINNER OF THE VIEJAS / KSON BIG COUNTRY SHOWDOWN & 2011 FINALIST OF THE VIEJAS ULTIMATE MUSIC CHALLENGE 


Formed in March 2008 by Liz Grace, TCJ is San Diego's only true REAL Country Honky Tonk band. Hailing from Missoula Montana singer/songwriter Liz Grace leads TCJ through a mix of country crafted originals and handpicked covers from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, Patsy Cline and other country greats. She got an early start singing in bars and honky-tonks, far before legal age, having to wait in alleys during band breaks. TCJ is made up of Southern Californias best country musicians.  The incredible steel guitar master Randy Hess will certainly put a tear in your beer while guitarist extraordinaire Mr. Bobby Ryan delivers the finest chickin pickin available. The rockin' rhythm section of drummer Mark Markowitz powers the vintage engine room and locks in the low end with bassist Mr. Dave Preston while providing the backbone for the BEST voice in town: Liz Grace.


2008 was a great debut year for the band, playing gigs at Gator By the Bay, December Nights in Balboa Park, and performing with the Zac Brown Band.
2017 was our busiest year yet with over 100 shows under our cowboy boots all over Southern California & surrounding states. Some of the gigs like December Nights & Gator by The Bay mark our 10th year in a row performing at these great events!
