Benny the Jet Rodriguez



Hometown: San Pedro, CA (USA)


Keepin the San Pedro pot–punk scene poppin is Benny The Jet Rodriguez! They emerged way back in the summer of 2012 originally a two piece featuring a studdly queer babe, L. Freeman(lilā?? weenie/knucklehead), and the handsome drummer with the chops, Joey Centofanti.

BTJR has become a trifecta with the addition of Todd C.(FYP/Toys That Kill) on the keys. Together they are making magic happen, and smoking tons of weed while doing it. BTJR songs are written by a sweet baby genius! Songs you wish you wrote with harmonious keyboard melodies on top of righteous dirty chord progressions, backed by crashy head bobbin' drums and vocal chorusā?? that are guaranteed to get stuck in your head.

BTJR= Straight up, pumped up, high side of the lo–fi, feel good, heart felt, innovative pop punk with some grrl power sprinkled on top. New, fresh, young, fun, rockin and uh rollin. Gotta love it!
