The Junkyard Band (JYB) was formed in the 1980. When The Junkyard Band first began playing they used buckets and cans, because these young kids from the projects in Washington DC, SE Barry Farms, at that time did not have enough money to purchase real equipment.
The band performed in east coast national TV commercials such as the Cavaliers Men clothing store. JYB began to get calls from major record companies such as Def Jam, and thereafter signed a record deal with Def Jam. JYB appeared in two movies “DC Cab” and “Tougher than Leather” along side Run DMC and Mr. T.
While signed to Def Jam under Russell Simmons the band released two national hit singles “Sardines and Pork Beans” and “W.O.R. D”. JYB toured the United States playing in venues such as the Capital Center, Richmond Coliseum, John F. Kennedy Center and the Apollo Theater in New York City with LL Cool J. The band had eventually made enough money to purchase real equipment. They began performing in night clubs as they became old enough to enter and started performing with folks such as Beatsie Boys, Salt n Pepa, Tupac, Roots, Slayer, Ice Cube, Yo-Yo. JYB has also release singles such as “Ruff it off”, “Loose Booty” and “Rippa Medley”.
